We currently have 6 players on IR. Adrian Peterson could very well be heading there. Shariff Floyd just went under the knife. And Rhodes still hasn't played this year and still might not this weekend. Six others listed on the injury report this week with limited practice and all of them are key contributors to the team.

I know injuries are part of the game but is it getting to the point where we need to start to question the training staff? I can't think of another team in recent history that has been hit with so many injuries.

Statistical aberrations happen.

Check out other teams IR lists.

The Packers have had more injury plagued seasons in recent years. Granted, we've lost several starters, it's bad luck. We mostly had good luck last year.

It's tough. But I like the optimism surrounding this team and its fans. Even with our starting QB and RB out, no one's hitting the panic button. We're a well-coached team with enough depth and potential to overcome all of this.

The training staff cures injuries, not causes them. I think you're referring to the Strength & Conditioning staff. And since the Strength guy has only been here 7 months, no, you can't question him yet.

The only thing you can question the training staff on is if the medical guys clear them too early, and I can't say that, because there's only a few players that seem to have injuries reoccur...mainly Floyd and Kalil (and even with Kalil, he hadn't missed any games until now).

we haven't had a pec injury yet, so I would say he is a big improvement so far!

I actually disagree a lot especially considering I can't remember a time we've been hit this hard by the injury bug and since it hasn't happened before and now it is I think be absolutely needs to be questioned.

With that said I've also had thoughts of the new field turf possibly being an issue?

I doubt turf would have had an impact on Peterson's injury. He seemed to get tangled up awkwardly.

Kalil has always battled injuries, nothing new here. Same story with Floyd.

Bridgewater's injury was just one of those freak incidents.

Aren't a few of the players on IR players that probably wouldn't have made the team out of preseason?

Bridgewater was at the outdoor practice facility, on grass, when he got hurt.

Kalil aggravated his hip in Tennessee, on grass.

And Peterson's leg wasn't able to move because a defender's foot was stepping on it. Hardly the turf.


Besides, how many Packer's got hurt? How many Chargers? How many Rams? The new turf isn't going to discriminate.

Chargers lost Brandon Oliver for the year during our game vs SD.

Look at the Patriots and how many key guys they had out last night. It happens in this league. I doubt they will go out and fire their strength coach.

Mike Zimmer's frustration with Sharrif Floyd continues. "Out of sight, out of mind,'' he said after his knee surgery

The injury bug has actually been pretty light. I think you only remember it more because of who it is that has been hurt, not the frequency.

Even if you look at current injuries, the Vikings have 18 players with some sort of injury...our opponent this weekend has 11 (and of those injuries, only have 1 less player than the Vikings on IR).

If anyone has been hit by the injury bug, it's the Chicago Bears, who have an absurd 26 players with injuries (with 11 of them on IR).

Zimmer's going to put Floyd on the dark side of the moon.
