11:45 AM ET 10.11 | The Packers have several stars injured heading into Week 6 and none of them practiced on Wednesday. B.J. Raji, Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley will not practice until at least Friday, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. They could all be game time decisions even if they don't practice. The Packers this week already lost Cedric Benson, who was placed on IR, but designated for return.

At first I thought that was a picture of Finley merrily skipping down the field.

Did he drop the ball again?

I thought Benson was gone for the season...

New rule. Each team can put one guy on IR, Designated To Return. He can practice after 6 weeks and play after 8 weeks. In the meantime, though, he's not on the roster, so he doesn't count against the 53-man limit.

I had to look it up.

Very steep dropoff from last year: secondary is very suspect. But with Rodgers now trying to lay the blame on, what, rookies? the ship is taking on water. Come on, Aaron, step up, dude, and shut your pie hole.

The rule just went into effect, The Steelers did it with DeCastro.

Good idea, actually, but why only one guy? We seem to have more injuries to key players this year. If they could put a half dozen guys on this list, it would allow teams to reload their bench without giving up on a guy for the whole season.

The rest of the Team has to step up, have them visit the pats and giants too see how it's done!
