GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers lost at Washington on Sunday, and Mike Daniels lost one of his “buddies” when fellow defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson sustained a season-ending ankle injury. “You never want to see anybody go down. You don’t want to see your worst enemy go down out there,” Daniels said Monday. “When you see one of your buddies go down, that makes it even worse. Mo and I are pretty close. He sits right next to me on the plane.
GREEN BAY — Keep the head up. Be aware if the quarterback got rid of the ball. Wrap up. Seems like a simple enough checklist for a defender to hit the quarterback. A roughing-the-passer penalty on linebacker Clay Matthews against the Minnesota Vikings might have raised new questions with the Green Bay Packers. The Packers talked about it this week ahead of their game today against the Washington Redskins. The commotion over the call won’t change the way that coach Mike McCarthy
LANDOVER, Md. — Adrian Peterson has played against Aaron Rodgers more than a dozen times and knows not to be surprised by anything. So when the prolific quarterback led the Green Bay Packers to a comeback victory in Week 1 and played well on an injured left knee in Week 2, it was par for the course. “You see him hobbling around last week and how effortless he was making plays,” Peterson said. “That’s one thing I learned: When you’ve got Aaron Rodgers on

GREEN BAY — The Catholic Diocese of Green Bay has approved a request by retired auxiliary Bishop Robert Morneau to completely withdraw from the public ministry for failing to report priest abuse nearly four decades ago. WLUK-TV in Green Bay reports that in a letter to Bishop David Ricken published in the diocesan newspaper The Compass, Morneau, a former bishop of the diocese, says he failed to report to local authorities an incident of abuse of a minor by a priest in 1979 and that the
GREEN BAY — In his first two games with the Green Bay Packers, Jimmy Graham’s impact on the offense has been obvious — in two very different ways. He caught just two passes for 8 yards in the season opener against Chicago, but the attention Graham drew allowed wide receivers Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison to have big days. Last week against Minnesota, Graham caught six passes for 95 yards and had a more direct role in the offense’s production —
GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers channeled a fictional prize fighter to describe how he felt after playing the Minnesota Vikings. “If you’ve seen (the movie) ‘Rocky III,’ you know Clubber Lang has a prediction before the fight: ‘Pain,’” Rodgers said with a smile on Wednesday. “That’s kind of what it felt like.” Rodgers said that he remained a “little sore” following the 29-29 tie against Minnesota last week when he played
GREEN BAY — Every week, the Green Bay Packers are like any other NFL team, sending video of officials’ calls they didn’t agree with to the league office for review. This week’s will have one that undoubtedly the league already knows the team is unhappy with: Linebacker Clay Matthews’ controversial roughing-the-passer penalty late in the fourth quarter, a call that wiped out a Packers interception and allowed the Minnesota Vikings to escape Lambeau Field with a 29-
GREEN BAY — Wide right, times two. Daniel Carlson missed two field goals in overtime, including one from 35 yards as time expired, and the Minnesota Vikings had to settle for a 29-29 tie with the Green Bay Packers after rallying from a late 13-point deficit on Sunday. The rookie’s final attempt went to the right of the uprights, just like his kick from 49 earlier in overtime. Carlson also missed from 48 in the second quarter. Packers kicker Mason Crosby matched a career high with
GREEN BAY — For the Minnesota Vikings, it’s more about whether Aaron Rodgers will have his full bag of tricks while playing with a knee injury than if he’ll be playing at all. The Vikings are thoroughly convinced the Green Bay Packers quarterback will be in uniform today when they visit Lambeau Field. “I don’t know if he’s mobile. I don’t know if he can run. We don’t know anything,” Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen said.
