Packers fear LB Jake Ryan may have torn ACL

Recommended Posts

Note: I'm currently digging for a more credible source.

ChargIRs suffered a season-ending injury, we all knew it was only a matter of time until the PackIRs would have to counter.  Methinks this injury may have a bit more of an impact on Green Bay's defense than Verrett's does on the Chargers' though.

ChargIRS and PackIRs getting an early lead on the Ravens for "most players on IR this year". Sooner or later we're gonna have to show up, but we're a 2nd half team so expect us to really kick it into gear come the 3rd preseason game.

Darn really? Hope the source isn't credible

There are plenty of credible sources that have noted that Ryan went down in camp today after a collision with Equanimeous St. Brown and was holding his right left in pain.  Had to be carted off because he could barely put any weight on the leg.  The source above is the only one I've seen so far citing a specific injury.

 

 

A few other, generally reliable sources.

The first of many. Boo PackIRs.

At this point, what can we really do?

 

On the bright side, Ryan was not as good as Martinez, but injuries sure do suck.

Other than depth, this won't impact the PackIRs. Ryan is nothing more than an average 2 down thumper.

He is one of the better 2 down thumpers

This is a pretty big loss given the depth at ILB.  Ryan has his issues but he's a good player in a limited role.

Solid player, sucks to see guys get hurt in camp. 

What do the Packers do at LB without him?

Will be quite interesting. Ted would've rolled with 3rd round pick Oren Burks and the best UDFA of the group we brought in which appears to be Notre Dame's Greer Martini.

However Bowman, Cushing and Derrick Johnson are out there. Ryan's a guy who is always subbed out in any defense other than base, so you're looking at something like 20-40% of snaps depending on opponent. One of those old dogs could probably fill in pretty well in that limited of a role.

Blake Martinez and a lot of nothing.  Rookie Oren Burks who's a converted DB and more of a Hybrid LB is probably the next man up.  Could mean a lot more CM3 on the inside despite the terrible depth at OLB.

Johnson’s in Oakland, I believe. 

Do you think Clay will take the reigns (I know he’s captained the defense) even though edge is susceptible?

Would Clay/Martinez on run downs with Clay to edge and someone like Josh Jones or Burks on 3rd down make more sense?
