radiate throughout the season if any of the injuries
Posted on 8:28pm Sep 18, 2017
The Green Bay Packers dropped like flies on Sunday night at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

By Monday, the many injuries suffered during the 60 minutes of football could have a far greater impact on the Packers’ 2017 season than the ugly, 34 23 loss to the Falcons in their shiny new stadium.

Offensive tackles David Deji Olatoye Jersey Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga weren’t able to shake off injuries and give it a go on Sunday night, leaving Kyle Murphy the starter at right tackle for Bulaga last week to play left tackle and Justin McCray the backup at center and an interior lineman by trade to man right tackle. Not having one of the top tackle combinations in the NFL would have been bad enough for the Packers, but key contributors began their departures on the first series and never relented.

Star defensive tackle Mike Daniels left with a hamstring injury during the first defensive series and didn’t return. Top receiver Jordy Nelson limped off on the first offensive possession and didn’t return. Starting safety Kentrell Brice suffered a groin injury in the first half and didn’t return. Starting right guard Jahri Evans injured his groin in the fourth quarter and didn’t return. Slot receiver Randall Cobb hurt his shoulder late in the contest and didn’t return. Starting cornerback Davon House suffered a leg injury late and didn’t return.

Six starters. Six departures. Six potential reasons for worry as the Packers pack up shop and head back to Green Bay.

“Our guys had a lot of grit, and a lot of injuries,” McCarthy said, according to Packers.com. “We have a long plane ride home , we’ll get back late https://www.falconsatljersey.com/ryan-schraeder-jersey-c-67.html, and we have a lot of work to do before we start on Cincinnati.”

The injuries were too much to overcome on Sunday night.

Losing Daniels and Nelson especially hurt.

Daniels is Green Bay’s go to interior pass rusher and run defender. His early exit – combined with the Packers’ early decision to rule him out – makes one wonder if his injury is more than just a simple muscle pull. Nelson’s status is equally as ominous after he slowed up after running a short route and gingerly walked off to the sideline. His injury was to the same leg as his ACL injury from 2015.

The Packers can’t afford to lose either Daniels or Nelson for a significant period of time.

Not having Brice took away some of Green Bay’s speed on defense, but it did allow for some important snaps for rookie Josh Jones. The Packers don’t have ready made replacements for either Evans or Cobb, and House is – at least for now – one of Green Bay’s top three cornerbacks.

The Packers are probably lucky to have avoided an injury to quarterback Aaron Rodgers https://www.falconsatljersey.com/andreas-knappe-jersey-c-69.html, who took several vicious shots from Falcons defenders. His health remains Green Bay’s most important asset.

Overall https://www.falconsatljersey.com/taniela-tupou-jersey-c-68.html, one loss is just one loss, and the Packers can’t feel terrible about starting the season 1 1 after the NFL scheduled the Falcons and Seattle Seahawks in back to back weeks. However, the pain from Sunday night could radiate throughout the season if any of the injuries suffered in Atlanta are of the long term variety.
