Green Bay, Wi (WSAU) Linebacker Brady Poppinga and rookie defensive end Mike Neal are the latest Packers to be officially out for the season. Coach Mike McCarthy said today that both players would be placed on injured reserve. Poppinga had arthroscopic knee surgery last week, and Neal has not played for awhile since hurting his shoulder.
Also McCarthy said that Cullen Jenkins would be questionable this week. He strained a calf during pre-game warmups this past Sunday.
McCarthy had no immediate word on Ryan Pickett, who aggravated an ankle injury and Brad Jones who sprained a shoulder.
Green Bay will travel to New York on Sunday to play the Jets. The Packers, after a 28-24 win over the Vikings, are tied for first place in the NFC North with the Chicago Bears.
