The injury bug continues to
hit the Packers.  Offensive lineman Don
Barclay went down yesterday with a knee injury. 
The team hasn’t confirmed that he tore his ACL yet.  Barclay would have been the swing lineman,
backing up both tackle positions this season. 
Former first round pick Derek Sherrod may be counted on to fill that
role now for the Packers.  Today’s
practice is set for 11:45am and will be open to the public.


Still no word on whether Tiger
Woods will play in this weekend’s PGA Championship at Valhalla.  The deadline to register for the year’s final

to sign up.  He pulled out of last
