Happy Halloween to all of you kids out there! Go get some candy or something while I dress up in my most realistic costume ever - lazy mid-20s candy-giver-outer guy. The best part about living where I do is knowing that there won't be any kids around, so I can stuff my face with as many fun size Snickers as I want all night long.
What's that? Football news? Oh yeah. There's a game coming up on Monday night. About that - we have a look at the Packers facing a third straight backup QB, the team's kick return game, and a number of players on the offensive and defensive lines. Start clicking!

Hyde doesn't know if he will become full-time return man | Packersnews
With the way Franklin has taken kicks back lately, I'd be surprised if Hyde gets fewer than half of the returns on Monday night.
Matthews could return by Week 10 to face Eagles | Packersnews
YES. Excellent. Club on his hand? Whatever. Now that Mike Daniels is wreaking havoc on the line, Matthews' return should be an instant boost to the pass rush.
