Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for December 13, 2013

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Friday's curds look at Packers returning from injury, a cold-weather Super Bowl, and a confusing draft pick in baseball.

Today's the day when we should find out about Aaron Rodgers' availability for Sunday's game between the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys. In the meantime, there are a number of other players for the Green and Gold getting well-deserved attention for their contributions to the team over the past few weeks.

Then there's the question of a cold-weather Super Bowl that has been on many people's minds lately. We've got differing viewpoints, but I'm inclined to agree with the big offensive lineman. After all, most writers don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose.

Packers should have Eddie Lacy on Sunday - JSOnline
Well, this is a positive sign. Even Lacy at 80% should have a good chance to pick up 100 yards on that Cowboys defense.

Packers' Mike Neal takes a big step at OLB - JSOnline
His forced fumble was a huge momentum swing in the Packers favor last Sunday, so hopefully he can continue his good play over the past few weeks.

Richardson hoping to prove he's a complete safety - JSOnline
I'm still really happy that Sean Richardson was able to come back this season. Given his size and physicality, it's easy to forget about how fast he is - he's almost certainly the best overall athlete at safety, and maybe in the entire secondary.

NFL Nation Says: A tainted Super Bowl? - NFL Nation Blog - ESPN
Kevin Seifert said "Elements are truth serum for Super Bowl. If they derail a team, it wasn't championship-caliber in first place." I thoroughly agree.

Josh Sitton says let it snow at Super Bowl - Green Bay Packers Blog - ESPN
Boom. So let it be written, so let it be done.

No words.

Russell Wilson was just drafted by the Texas Rangers - SBNation.com
No, yeah, nice pick Rangers. I'm sure Wilson will be ready and raring to get the baseball season underway when February or March roll around.
