NFL  > Green Bay Packers  > Clifton out "a number of weeks"
October 10, 2011, 07:13 PM
here's the whole story: http://www.packers.com/news-and-events/article_spofford/art icle-1/Clifton-out-for-a-number-of-weeks/73f71397-6fef-48c8- 9558-52ad0036535b

So here we go again, the injury bug hits again. Collins done for the season and now Clifton out for a while. Overall, I was impressed by Sherrod last night and have been impressed by Newhouse the past two weeks. With some first team time hopefully they can continue to improve. Don't like Rodgers getting hit as much as he did last night, so hopefully that will change. The Packers now have three new pieces on the O-Line from the end of last year. But hey, in Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy I trust! Go Pack Go!

Apologize for the redundancy, and I'm supposed to be a college student!

No need to apologize Alaska as this team seems to get more than its share of injuries. Hopefully the young guys can handle the OT positions without a noticeable dropoff in performance as they have to keep Rodgers from absorbing too much punishment.

Go Packers!

The Packers will be in Detroit on Thanksgiving Day and your team better be ready to play 60 minutes of football.

hopefully Clifton will be back by then, Bulaga definitely should be. And quite frankly, if I was the Lions I'd want the Packers at 100%. Maybe that's just me, but I'd rather play a team thats completely healthy...cuts down on the possible excuses for why we beat them!

The loss of Clifton and Bulaga will give these young OT's valuable playing time. I'm sure they will continue to improve.
