By now, we all know what happened over the weekend - the anchors in the middle of both the Green Bay Packers' offensive and defensive lines were each lost to serious injury, including one out for the year. B.J. Raji will have to try to get a new free agent contract next year after spending 2014 on Injured Reserve, while the Packers will scramble to plug in rookie Corey Linsley for a few weeks after JC Tretter's knee injury sidelined him for a month and a half.

Predictably, that's about all anyone is talking about regarding the Packers, and takes up most of our coverage in today's curds.
