The Curse of The Pulled Hamstring

The Green Bay Packers are dealing with injuries but it has been worse for them in recent years. The big problem is that players keep injuring their hamstrings and there's nothing for them to do but rest for a while. Just ask Larry Fitzgerald.
Morgan Burnett and Casey Hayward have each been out for a few weeks with a bad hammy and recently Jarrett Bush and John Kuhn joined the party. With a bye week on the horizon, I'm not expecting the Packers to rush them. Burnett is practicing but he practiced last week too.

Jermichael Finley is out with an injured toe but there's probably not much he can do about it except rest. The Packers held him out of practice last Wednesday too. But he did practice rest of the week and played on Sunday. I'd expect the same this week.

Johnny Jolly seems fine after last week's neck injury and he's back at practice. It's also good to see Josh Sitton is not listed this week; his hurting back must be feeling better.

Eddie Lacy was on the sidelines, but he didn't practice so he probably has not been cleared by two doctors yet as required by the NFL's concussion protocol. He might get that later this week.
