Packers' Geronimo Allison still going through concussion protocol

Packers' Geronimo Allison still going through concussion protocol

Although not as unlikely as Crosby's performance Sunday, we wouldn't count on it. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy sent Crosby out to connect on a 41-yarder with less than 10 seconds remaining, perhaps a chance to rebuild some confidence.

On Wednesday, Rodgers downplayed any rift with the man who has been his coach for his entire 13-year career. "I think we've grown a lot", Valdes-Scantling said. "We have a great relationship". With two of Rodgers normal options out on Sunday, Adams was still able to do plenty of damage, even while being matched up against Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay. "You've got to keep the conversation going". The execution wasn't where it needs to be.

Regardless, a high standard is what Crosby holds himself to.

McCarthy, who spoke at length about Rodgers' comments on Monday, was eager to move on, as well.

"This is how the week goes sometimes", McCarthy said.

"Every attempt I felt like I was in rhythm going through it", Crosby said, via Josh Tolentino of The Atlhletic. "So, disappointing obviously being on that side, how we've been hitting the ball for me, that just feels like one of those days because I feel extremely, extremely good this year with how I'm striking it".

Detroit had success on defense, going after Rodgers with just four players and dropping seven into coverage.


Green Bay couldn't get into any kind of rhythm on offense and couldn't get a stop on defense.

Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'Mon Moore and Equanimeous St. He has 17 catches in three games, including nine for 142 yards and a score in the season opener. Rodgers said. "They are trying to catch the ball".

"I don't get this much attention unless it's really bad or extremely good", Crosby told PackersNews.com after the 31-23 loss at the paws of the Detroit Lions.

The Lions, who didn't face Rodgers previous year, have won three straight in the series for the first time the 1990-91 seasons.

It's the second week in a row that Rodgers has practiced on Thursday following a missed Wednesday session. Tight end Jimmy Graham is fourth on the team with 16 receptions and running back Ty Montgomery, who started his career as a receiver, is fifth with 11. Accomplishing those things should improve an offense that has been so-so on third down and bad in the red zone.

"This one hurts a bunch", Crosby said. Green Bay's depth may be tested this weekend as one or more of the team's three rookie draft choices may be pressed into major roles for the first time in their young National Football League careers.
