Biegel's recovery from offseason foot surgery has been a slow process, and he is not ready to practice just yet, so he will not open the regular season as part of the active roster. If Biegel is able to get on the field this season he will provide depth at the outside linebacker position for the Packers.
Biegel (foot) still has major challenges ahead in order to be ready to play Week 1, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Biegel is still eligible to start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. The worries of Packers' fans are justified when you take into account the history he's had with this foot, including the surgery last season. It's tough to see where he will stand in the depth chart since he only had a few healthy snaps in the offseason program.
Biegel (foot) will not practice the rest of the week or play in Saturday's preseason contest against Denver.
Ruling Biegel out of all activities four days in advance isn't a positive sign for his recovery. The Packers have yet to see what he can do for a full practice, and time is winding down on preseason. Biegel has had surgery on this foot twice in the past year, though, so the Packers are not in a hurry to rush him back, but a lot of fans are eager to see if he can make moves on the depth chart when he's healthy.
Biegel (foot) has yet to return to practice following his May surgery, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
There were some rumbles earlier this week that Biegel could return to the practice field but coach Mike McCarthy shut those down Tuesday. As for now, the rookie linebacker is still on the team's PUP list but has been making some decent-sized strides. The expectation is that Biegel will be able to at least practice before the regular season, but nothing is a given at this point in time.
Biegel (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the beginning of training camp, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Biegel underwent surgery on his foot back in May and he remains without a concrete timetable for a return. Packers' head coach Mike McCarthy said Biegel could be back in "a couple weeks," but he wouldn't get any more specific. The rookie linebacker is the main addition the team made to what is a thin position group. Though he'll have a learning curve after missing so much offseason time, Biegel could see a consistent role in the Green Bay defense once he's healthy and the regular season roles around.
