Packers News 9/15/11
Al:The news coming out of Mike McCarthy’s press conference yesterday was not good. Injured Packers defensive end Mike Neal will be missing more games after undergoing a surgical procedure on Tuesday. Details of the procedure were not released, but Mike McCarthy said the doctors were pleased with how it went. McCarthy would only say Neal will miss “significant weeks,” but he doesn’t think it would be long enough to put Neal on injured reserve.
Jayme: The news was better about Tramon Williams. Thanks to the extra 3 days between games, McCarthy believes Williams’ shoulder could be improved enough for him to play Sunday at Carolina.
McCarthy also said that it wasn’t a requirement Williams be able to practice this week to play in the game. Sounds like Mike really doesn’t want to play the game without him…
Al: NFL sources have reported that Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was fined $10,000 for punching Saints tight end David Thomas in the third quarter of last week’s game. Although Woodson was flagged for a penalty, he was not ejected, which the rules call for. After the game, Woodson said he regretted that it happened, but he didn’t exactly apologize for doing it.
