No, the injuries never cease in Green Bay.

The Green Bay Packers' injury woes didn't end with the bye week. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, long-snapper Taybor Pepper broke his foot during Thursday's practice and will land on injured reserve as a result. Another report from ESPN's Rob Demovsky states the team has begun working out available long-snappers today.

Pepper originally arrived in Green Bay this past January after signing a futures contract with the team. He suffered an injury in May, forcing his release. After a brief stint with the Baltimore Ravens, the Packers brought him back on Sept. 17.

The Packers have already dealt with injuries at long-snapper. In Week 3, Brett Goode suffered a severe hamstring tear that landed him on injured reserve. Green Bay subsequently released him with an injury settlement. Goode cannot re-sign with the team until after Week 10 due to that settlement.

At the moment, the Packers have no other full-time long-snapper on the roster. However, tight end Richard Rodgers can play the position in an emergency.
