A roundup of what’s happening on the Green Bay Packers’ beat.
GREEN BAY, Wis. – Rest assured, Brett Favre will one day be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame. It just won’t happen in the next class.
The Packers Hall of Fame announced on Tuesday that it would induct running back Ahman Green and tackle Ken Ruettgers next July. Those are certainly two worthy inclusions.
There still may be some work to do before Favre and the Packers’ brass can sit in the same room, although indications of late have been that both sides have started the steps toward reconciliation.
But that has nothing to do with the Packers Hall of Fame. It’s an organization that is independent from the Green Bay Packers; however, the museum is housed in Lambeau Field. In fact, it closed last month for renovations as part of the stadium atrium project and won’t reopen until 2015.
Perhaps that’s the year Favre will go in. He could go into the Packers Hall of Fame then and the Pro Football Hall of Fame the next year (2016), when he is first eligible.
In case you missed it on ESPN.com:
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers revealed that he experienced pain in his collarbone after practicing last Wednesday and would need different results in order to play against the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday.
On his weekly radio show, Rodgers sounded more frustrated and less certain about his return this season than he had been previously.
The Packers made a roster move, activating rookie offensive lineman JC Tretter off the physically unable to perform list and placing receiver Myles White on injured reserve. The Packers would like to see if Tretter can handle playing center.
The weekly playing-time breakdown showed snap counts from Sunday’s win over the Atlanta Falcons.
