According to ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky, there is "frustration throughout the organization" with 2012 first-round pick Nick Perry, who missed all of spring practices with an undisclosed injury.

He's built, appearance wise, like a monster.
But apparently his bones, muscle, are more brittle than most.

A shame.

Yes I believe Franklin's career as a Packer, sadly and too typically for us, is already over.

GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers RB Johnathan Franklin may have his career put on hold, if not ended, due to a neck injury.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky says that the Packers are showing extra concern about the neck injury that ended Franklin's 2013 season.

"According to two people with knowledge of his situation, the Packers are putting Franklin through more tests to determine whether it's safe for him to continue playing," Demovsky reported.

He suffered a concussion and neck injury in the Minnesota Vikings game in November.

Transition from college DE to NFL OLB is not an easy one and if he can't stay healthy enough to get reps it ain't gonna happen. He's leaving the door wide open for one of these other guys to jump him in the depth chart.

McCarthy said Franklin's situation will be addressed tomorrow. ... That likely means he will retire or be waived injured.
Terrible news. Bright side is that judging by his interviews and his upbeat personality, he should be able to make an impact in another venue. Maybe now he can work on becoming Mayor of Los Angeles like he talked about doing

I'm assuming he'll announce his retirement tomorrow.

Christ... I had high hopes for him and fully expected him to be a great tandem back with Lacey. Good thing we resigned Starks.

Another career ending neck injury. God Damn.

Here's hoping it doesn't effect his ability to live a full and fruitful life.

Also from Demovsky:

Since 2000, the Packers have had at least nine players suffer significant neck injuries. Of that group -- safety Gary Berry, receiver Terrence Murphy, offensive lineman Tony Palmer, defensive end/outside linebacker Jeremy Thompson, safety Nick Collins, safety Sean Richardson, Finley, Jolly and Franklin -- only Richardson has returned to play.

I'm not at all sure of the statistics but it sure seems the Packers have far more of these than most.

I'm crushed too.
But DuJuan Harris was great the year before last year for us too.
If he can be, get, stay healthy.

How do guys like Emmitt, Curtis Martin, LaDanian, Frank Gore, Chris Johnson, Ray Rice last so long?

Dammit.

"The Curse of Nelson Toburen" is what the media is calling the seemingly recurring pattern of career ending neck injuries in Green Bay.

Toburen was a second year linebacker on Lombardi's teams and was touted as the next great Packers linebacker. He broke his neck tackling Johnny Unitas and never played football again.

Toburen, Sharpe, Collins, Finley and others have all had their careers cut short by neck injuries, Franklin being the latest.

Football is one Hell of a violent game. Next time I find myself resenting the huge salaries of NFL players I'll keep this in mind.

Does anyone think that our safety duo could be Hyde/Dix next year?? If Morgan keeps under performing it'd be hard to keep Dix on the bench if Hyde was starting which it seems might happen. If Hyde performs really well And burnett has another off year, he and his contract could be the odd man out. Thoughts??

I think we see Hyde start next to Burnett to begin the season as Clinton-Dix becomes more familiar with the defensive calls and different looks that come with being a safety in the NFL. Communication is where Burnett really falls short and either he'll shift to strong safety when HCD is ready or he'll be out of a starting spot. Due to cap hits and whatnot I think Burnett has two years left with the team at the very least. I'm sure Morgan will give the team many reasons to throw HCD into the fire by Week 5 or so.

There isn't much in there that hasn't been written by multiple Green Bay media outlets already. Pretty much on par for NFL.com. This quote makes me wonder how much actual research went into the article:

Quote:
Along those lines, Jones is set to replace departed veteran Ryan Pickett as the bookend to Daniels, with B.J. Raji staying inside at nose tackle.
Maybe I'm being nitpicky but Pickett played mostly nose last season if I recall correctly. Raji is being shifted from DE to NT (which is what he's wanted for some time). Jones would then be moving into the DE spot previously occupied by Raji.

I will agree with the author that if Jones can turn potential into production to go along with Clay, Peppers, Daniels, and a motivated Raji, the defense could make some noise this season.

It just got me re-excited again about Datone Jones.

McCarthy doesn't often rave about rookies to that degree.....
