Here’s some rapturous or possibly terrifying news for NFL fans of various affiliations: the Green Bay Packers have activated Aaron Rodgers from injured reserve.
Eight weeks after he went down with a broken collarbone and seemingly took the Packers’ playoff hopes down with him, Aaron Rodgers has been medically cleared to return—with, of course, those playoff hopes still alive and now more fearsome than ever.
It looked like this was going to be the day that the 2008 0-16 Lions could finally break out the champagne. The 0-12 Cleveland Browns were up 21-7 on Green Bay at the start of the fourth quarter, in perfect position to get their first win since Christmas Eve 2016.
Newly acquired Patriots tight end Martelleus Bennett was on the field for seven snaps last night, catching three balls for 38 yards. It was a strange place for him to be, given that just days earlier he had been released by the Packers for failing to disclose what appeared to be a serious shoulder injury. So what…
After getting cut by the Packers on Wednesday for “failure to disclose a medical condition” and signing with the Patriots on Thursday, Martellus Bennett gave his side of the story about how his time in Green Bay ended in a long, expletive-filled rant on Instagram.
The Green Bay Packers announced today that they’ve cut TE Martellus Bennett, tagging him with the “failure to disclose a medical condition” designation. That label will allow the Packers to potentially reclaim $4.2 million out of Bennett’s signing bonus from when he signed a three-year contract with the team in March.
The Packers’ quarterback situation is suddenly very dire. Aaron Rodgers is likely out for the season with a broken collarbone, and the team now has to start Brett Hundley, a former fifth-round pick with 44 career NFL pass attempts. Perhaps even more worrying is the fact that behind Hundley is Joe Callahan, a former…
To the extent that there has been any joy to be found in the NFL this year, it was Aaron Rodgers that delivered it. In a season otherwise dominated by bad quarterbacks, bad games, lazy blowouts, and the noisy co-opting of demonstrations originally meant to protest racial injustice, Rodgers was both brilliant and fun.…
After taking what looked like a hard hit from Anthony Barr after a throw, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has left the game against Minnesota. While Rodgers initially walked off the field under his own power, he was carted to the locker room soon after.
Here’s a Florida Man story that’s just, like, a little too on the nose—a 27-year-old guy in Vero Beach who was hospitalized with second- and third-degree burns after setting himself on fire when he lost a bet on Sunday’s Packers-Cowboys game.
A pair of missed extra points from Mason Crosby looked like they could be the difference in a Green Bay loss today, but instead, they simply set the stage for yet another signature Aaron Rodgers comeback at Cowboys Stadium, and Green Bay won 35-31.
The NFL has suspended Danny Trevathan two games for his brutal helmet-to-helmet hit on Packers receiver Davante Adams Thursday night:
Packers wide receiver Davante Adams was taken off the field on a stretcher and left the stadium in an ambulance tonight after being the victim of a vicious hit from Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan. The hit—which was called as an unnecessary roughness penalty—sent Adams’s mouth guard flying as his head slammed into…
The Packers and Bears resume the oldest rivalry in professional football tomorrow night, with the Bears visiting Lambeau Field for the teams’ 195th meeting. (The series, amazingly, is currently tied 94-94-6.) One man who will be in attendance for the game is Russell Beckman.
Behold, another move to co-opt a crude outline of Colin Kaepernick’s protest, divorce it of any meaning or purpose, and cash it in for a branding opportunity. The Green Bay Packers released a statement tonight asking their fans to link arms in a display of unity during the national anthem before Thursday night’s game.
David Hookstead of the Daily Caller spoke to an NFL owner who is livid about the anthem protests, and he wants you to know:
Aaron Rodgers had a frustrating start to his Sunday, but by the time it got late in the game against Cincinnati, he was delivering another vintage performance. With 17 seconds to play in the fourth quarter, Rodgers fired a bullet pass earmarked for Jordy Nelson and just out of reach of a diving Dre Kirkpatrick, tying…
The Green Bay Packers’ chances of spoiling the Falcons’ first game in their gaudy new butthole stadium crumbled to dust on two plays on either side of halftime.
Some people are fans of the Green Bay Packers. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the Green Bay Packers. This 2017 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here.
