Ahman apparently has been hurting...

Postby Mercer Boy » Fri Oct 15, 2004 3:04 am

Forgive me for posting something I was unaware of..is this new news or something he's been hiding? Ahman's had an Achilles' Heel injury since the beginning of the year...

Yahoo player update thingy wrote:Oct 14 Green did not practice on Wednesday due to an Achilles' injury that coach Mike Sherman said has been bothering the running back most of the season, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Recommendation: Green was listed as probable on the injury report, but is expected to play on Sunday. Sherman added that he wants Green, who has four fumbles in five games this season and 11 in his last 21 regular-season games, to get a better grip on the ball. "I've said many, many times in this room that to win football games you have to hang onto the football, and we haven't done a great job," Sherman said. "That's going to be a point of emphasis at the start of practice."

Oct 14 As a precaution, Green was held out of practice on Wednesday to rest his sore Achilles. The running back, who has been battling the minor ailment since the start of the season, is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, and he is expected to be in the starting lineup.
Advice: Green had 247 yards and two touchdowns on 57 carries in the Packers' first two games of the 2004 campaign, but since, he's rushed for just 158 yards on 42 carries in his last three games combined. In addition, he has failed to reach the end zone since the team's regular-season opener, and he's fumbled four times this year, losing three.

Great, we have fumbling and a nagging injury to deal with...can you tell I own this guy? :,-(

Is Najeh Davenport still entrenched as Ahman Green's backup?

I also own green and don't know who to grab as his back-up, Fisher usually sees time because he is a good reciever out of the backfield but Davenport is listed as the back-up but he is always hurt. Who would get most of the playing time if green went out?

It's pronounced "blah-ZAY." Pretty stupid word for the most part, but it's one of those annoying crossword clues that you have to know (yes, the streak is still intact!) :-)

It's really not the right word for this question anyway... :-/

Dictionary.com wrote:blase'
1. Uninterested because of frequent exposure or indulgence.
2. Unconcerned; nonchalant: had a blasé attitude about housecleaning.
3. Very sophisticated.


To answer the question, he better be banging...I'm waiting for him to actually score some points for my team. However, his bad track record against the Lions is a scary stat. :,-(

Since Davenport has been touted as the next great stud, I would imagine he would take over the reigns in the event Ahman went down.
