Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for September 24, 2013

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

We're another day removed from the Packers' loss to the Bengals, so it's time to review the injury list from the game.

Injuries are a part of any physical sport, especially football, but it seems that the Green Bay Packers have been hit harder than most other teams by injuries over the past several years. This year appears to be no different so far, as hamstring injuries have cost several players several games over the start to the season. That's the big theme in today's curds - figuring out what's going on and using the bye week to rectify it.
