There were two practices on Tuesday for the Green Bay Packers, and now they have a day off on Wednesday. In addition to the really big NFL news story, there were several other news items.
- Greg Bedard tweets that LG Daryn Colledge, DE Justin Harrell, and LT Marshall Newhouse were all held out on Tuesday. Harrell was only struggling with the heat, Colledge has a hyperextended elbow and it's unclear when he'll return, and Newhouse has a concussion, which is probably the most serious injury of the three. Hopefully they will all be available to play this weekend in the family night scrimmage.
- Greg Bedard reports at the Journal-Sentinel that undrafted rookie WR Jeff Moturi is out with a sprained knee. It couldn't come at a worse time as he battles for playing time in the early preseason games.
- Mike McCarthy also said that SS Atari Bigby is traveling to North Carolina for an evaluation of his injured ankle.
- The criminal investigation into the June 5th incident involving CB Brandon Underwood remains "open and ongoing."
- The Journal-Sentinel reports that DE Johnny Jolly "will spend one year on a pretrial diversion program" after which the felony drug charge against him could be dismissed. It comes too late to help now as he remains suspended for the entire 2010 season. I'm not surprised by the outcome since it seemed that both sides had been trying to avoid a trial. Hopefully he can turn his life (and NFL career) around.
