Packers Make Moves

The Packers have lost linebacker DJ Smith and RB Brandon Saine for the season.  Both players suffered knee injuries in Sunday night’s win over Houston.   Saine was already placed on Injured Reserve and claimed RB Johnny White off of waivers from Buffalo.  The hole at linebacker will be filled in house by either Brad Jones, Robert Francois, or Jamari Lattimore. Head Coach Mike McCarthy also said that linebacker Nick Perry’s knee injury may not be as bad as first thought, but didn’t have a timetable for his return.  Sam Shields got kicked in the shin late in Sundays win and may miss the Rams game next this weekend.


Lewis Out

The Baltimore Ravens were stung by the injury bug just as bad as the Packers losing All-Pro Ray Lewis for the season with an arm injury and CB Ladarius Webb is lost with an ACL tear.


Monday Night Football

The Denver Broncos rallied from a 24-0 halftime deficit to beat the San Diego Chargers 35-24 on Monday Night Football.  Peyton Manning threw from 309 yards and 3 TDs


Baseball Playoffs

The San Francisco Giants thumped the St. Louis Cardinals 7-1 to even up the National League Championship Series at 1-1 on Monday Night.  Game 3 is Wednesday night in St. Louis.  The American League Championship Series shifts to Detroit tonight for Game 3.  The Tigers lead the Best of 7 series 2-0.
