    B.J. Raji, torn triceps

    B.J. Raji believed to have torn biceps for Packers

    Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said following Friday night's 31-21 victory over the Oakland Raiders that nose tackle B.J. Raji was "pretty confident" about the injury he suffered during the contest.

    However, that confidence is quickly dissipating.

    NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday that the belief is that Raji tore his right biceps, according to two people briefed on the injury. Tests will show whether it is a full or partial tear.

    The extent of the injury will determine the rehab time.

    A torn biceps recently cost 49ers nose tackle Glenn Dorsey his season. On the brighter side, a slight tear might only keep Raji out for the start of the season -- on an even brighter (perhaps unrealistic) side, Terrelle Suggs famously played with a torn biceps in 2012.

    Raji signed a one-year, prove-it deal with the Packers in the offseason. He has drawn raves at Packers camp for his play after sliding back to nose tackle. Losing the space-eating Raji for any time is a blow for a defense that has designs on turning around under Dom Capers after several lackluster seasons.

    If he's done for the year that blow becomes even bigger.

    This could be a big blow for the Packers defense

    Dumb move by him trying to put in a value year. Packers offered him a nice fat contract extension awhile ago and he declined wanting more. You get greedy you get screwed.

    Big blow if it's significant.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    Wow, that really sucks. Hoping it's a minor tear as I really think he was primed to have a great year.

    lol its not a huge blow. Dude has been non existent since our SB year. He was a back up player for most of last year. Sucks to lose a player but i wouldn't call this a huge blow to our season.

    Alfred Williams played with two torn triceps, so it's not unfathomable that he could play through it. But sucks regardless.

    Packers NT B.J. Raji is out for the season, as many suspected, with a torn bicep.
    Won't be coming back this season.

    The guy is horrible. Shouldn't even have resigned him, IMO.

    But this is a "huge blow". Dude was a FA and no other team wanted him so he came back on a cheap 1 year "prove it" deal because he has been garbage for over 2 years now. It's just a blow to our depth but its not like our defense is going to be horrible now because of it.

    He's talented and was moving back to his natural position. He had a real chance to be a valuable part of the defense again. Hate to lose him, and hate the injury for him insofar as he's in a significantly worse position than he could have been going into next year's free agency.

    I feel like everyone who is saying its a huge blow has been watching the tape from the SB year or his Boston College highlights. Sure, it sucks that a starter went down but there are 7+ players that are more important on that defense (for better or worse)

    Yeah, he's been a shell of his old self in recent years. Still, without really knowing anything about GB's depth at the position, I don't think it's completely insignificant.
