Injuries Piling Up For Packers

The Packers are 4-4, coming off one of the most embarrassing losses in franchise history. They need a win in the worst way to even think about contending for the playoffs, and they have to get one against one of the best teams in the NFC this weekend. As if I wasn't already worried enough about the prospects of this game, now comes the news that the Packers will be starting a rookie seventh-round pick at outside linebacker.

Look, I like Brad Jones as much as the next guy, but having him get his first start against the Dallas Cowboys is a pretty tall order. Although the way Aaron Kampman has been playing, anything is an improvement I guess. Jones will get the start as Kampman is already listed as out with an injury, along with Jermichael Finley, Mark Tauscher, and Brady Poppinga.

The injury that might actually hurt us the most out of these four is Finley, because without him the Packers seem to have no passing game between the 5 to 30 yard variety. It's either been all screens or bombs downfield since he's been out. Maybe if someone could find just where the hell Donald Lee has been the last few weeks...

And if that wasn't bad enough, the Packers are also without former maintenance employee Mike Wood. Apparently Wood may or may not have hurt McCarthy's feelings a couple of weeks ago, and he was shown the great. Great time to be a Packers fan right now I tell ya.

That's a little much.
