Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for September 24, 2015

The Packers' rookie receiver already has developed a bit of a bond with his quarterback.

This afternoon, we should learn a little bit about the health of injured Green Bay Packers Eddie Lacy and Davante Adams, both of whom suffered ankle injuries in Sunday's win over Seattle. It's easy to say what will happen if Lacy can't play - James Starks will carry the bulk of the load and Alonzo Harris will spell him.

However, if Adams can't play or is significantly limited, the options are somewhat less sure. Still, one of the Packers' young receivers has appeared to have separated himself from the other, as Ty Montgomery earned several offensive snaps on Sunday and made the most of them.

In today's curds, we take a look at those young receivers, as well as looking at a few of the Packers' linemen who had big games against the Seahawks.

The arguments here are as follows: first, Davante Adams' snaps will likely be limited somewhat on Monday night and second, the team hasn't developed a deep threat and these two are the most likely candidates.

Then again, it's probably pretty obvious which of the two would get the first crack at taking extra snaps - Ty's work ethic and effort starting in the classroom is a big reason why.

Pennel had a much better game on Sunday than he did in week one, and part of the reason for it is focusing more on his assignments instead of trying to do too much himself.

T.J. Lang is never one to pull punches when it comes to his criticism of the NFL, and he took to Twitter on Wednesday to express his displeasure for being fined for pulling K.J. Wright off Richard Rodgers.

It was not only Linsley's ability to snap the ball immediately when he identifies an opponent who jumps offsides; it was also a ridiculous combo block that he made to put Michael Bennett on his butt and then engage a linebacker and spring James Starks for a big gain.

Finally, we have these little nuggets from NFL.com's Bucky Brooks, looking at Aaron Rodgers' historically-impressive numbers:
