Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions
Sunday, September 14th, 2008
Noon CST, FOX
This is an open thread for the game.
If WR Jordy Nelson was inactive, then the Packers top five draft choices in 2008 would all be out for this game. He might make a catch or two as the number 4 WR and might have a chance to contribute on kick returns. Rookie 7th round pick QB Matt Flynn will hold the clipboard as the no. 2 QB behind Rodgers. Really, the team was so good last season, it's hard to imagine a rookie coming in and making much of an impact.
The big news is that RB Ryan Grant will play, and start, but it looks like CB Charles Woodson will play too after missing all practices last week with a broken toe.
