Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. If you missed it yesterday, both Brandon Saine and D.J. Smith have been shut down for the rest of the season with knee injuries. Smith's roster status and any potential replacement is yet to be determined, while Saine is already on I.R. The Packers picked up Johnny White to replace him, but ILB is a bigger concern than HB at the moment. A good portion of today's Green Bay Packers news and links take a look at that spot.
