    Packers are bringing pankey up from the practice squad. Interesting move. They have a lot of OL on the active roster at this point. Wonder if spriggs really is injured and they fear bulaga won't be ready this week.

    Just seems strange. We've got 9 OL on the roster, which is a little strong, especially compared to the healthy DL. Not sure if they were worried about losing pankey, or think they prefer him to Patrick, so they'll cut Patrick when bulaga is healthy or what, but it just seems strange to carry that many OL, especially since OL don't carry a ton of ST value (they won't be on the punt or kick coverage teams or the punt return team.).

    Spriggs out two weeks. Mac said we have guys banged up on the line is what he said today.

    our whole line must be hurting. I understand bringing Pankey up but, they also signed G Darrell Greene to the PS. thats a lot of Olinemen

    I guess just to replace Pankey there? Idk.

    Some OL will get moved down when they get healthy I'm sure. Just a temp thing?

    This is a bit off topic, but a bit on. I would add in who else could we really have added to that slot there is nothing wrong with having some depth at the OL position. With a few exceptions almost every OL find for Ted Thompson has been 4th round-undrafted. So I'm not going to complain. On this OL we have 1 FA, 1 1st rounder, everyone else was a 4th round or lower pick up by Thompson, Lane Taylor was a UDFA. Some of his other successes Lang and Sitton both in that category. Given how some of the OL looked in the pre-season I can see the argument to stack up. Your franchise player needs protection, having depth in that category is not a bad idea.

    I agree with that. Never can really have too many quality big guys on either side of the ball. If pankey is any sort of real deal, it makes sense to add him. But it's also possible he's just the most ready to play this week if our injuries stack of.

    The other thing I think is not really relevant, but sort of interesting, is that even guys like breno giacomini and Allen barbre are still hanging around the league as starters. The ted has done a superb job of finding gems later in the draft at OL.
