In every way, Injuries defined the Packers' 2013 season. Now several months removed their last game, many Packers are working their way back into form. Some of these players are having a better go of it than others.
Tex covered part of this yesterday in his post about Johnathan Franklin, but multiple Packers are running into trouble due to their absence from practice.
Kevin Dorsey was one of the two intriguing seventh-round receivers the Packers brought in a year ago. After spending his rookie season on the injured reserve, it will be an uphill climb to make the 53. Not only is he behind Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Jarrett Boykin, but the Packers also drafted three more receivers while Chris Harper has looked impressive in OTAs.
Speaking of players who spent time on IR in 2013, Casey Hayward's back and moving well in practice. If he's fully recovered from the hamstring injury that effectively cost him all of last season, Hayward can once again become the Packers' top playmaker in the secondary.
If you own shares in the Packers, you'll have the opportunity to vote on candidates Philip B. Flynn (no relation to the quarterback), Michael J. Haddad, and Elizabeth Trowbridge. I for one welcome our new Green Bay Packer overlords.
The headline speaks for itself. Also, they call Tex by his actual name. Weird.
The idea of challenging Washington's trademark on the Redskins name has been discussed before, but a cancellation by the patent office wasn't expected so soon. While the decision is stayed while the team appeals, this could be the knockout blow for the name.
