Biegel (foot) might not be ready for the start of training camp, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.
It seems more likely than not that Biegel won't be ready for the start of camp. The Wisconsin product has missed valuable practice time this offseason due to a couple of health problems, the first being a hand injury and the second being an aggravation of the Jones fracture in his right foot that sidelined him for the final two games of his collegiate career. The former never seemed to a be a serious issue in any case, but the latter could prove problematic, in regard to Biegel's rookie-year availability, if it lingers into the latter stages of the summer.
Biegel (hand) underwent surgery to correct a fracture in his foot, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Biegel missed time during the first day of rookie practice due to a hand injury, and it appears he has since re-aggravated the Jones fracture in his foot that forced him to miss two games at Wisconsin last season. The surgery will keep him out until at least training camp, and he's in danger of missing some time then as well. The team will be hoping he can recover quickly to contribute to the defense early on in the season.
Biegel didn't have his hand wrapped after practice and called the injury minor. While the results of his X-rays will determine the specific extent of the ailment, it wouldn't be surprising if he misses Saturday's session because of it.
Biegel is a versatile linebacker with the ability to play inside or out in a 3-4 scheme. He profiles as a starter for Green Bay in the near future after starting three years at Wisconsin. While Biegel should be a good player for Green Bay either way, playing outside would limit his IDP upside.
