Report: Packers Raji Likely Out for Season
B.J. Raji Suffers a Torn Biceps
A big blow for the Green Bay Packers after multiple reports have their starting nose tackle B.J. Raji out for the season. Originally Packers coach Mike McCarthy said that he didn’t believe that the injury was serious, but further tests on Saturday have confirmed that Raji has a torn biceps. Raji suffered the injury sometime during Friday’s preseason game against the Oakland Raiders.
Now the loss of Raji is not as significant as losing Aaron Rodgers, it still may play a factor in deciding who wins the NFC North. I’d look for the Packers to keep an eye on the scrap heap, and possibly sign a player who gets cut during roster trim downs.
