Palmer’s Neck Surgery May End His Career

The Packers may lose guard Tony Parker for good, as the neck surgery he had last month very well could end his career.  Palmer had the surgery back on September 28th, and right now only time will tell if he can return at some point.  “There’s cautious optimism,” general manager Ted Thompson said Friday. “This will take a little time. The main thing is to make sure the kid’s all right.”  The 24-year-old was hurt back on September 16th in a game against the Giants on a kickoff return.  “They are extremely optimistic that not only will Tony have a full and complete and healthy life but that he will have a long and successful National Football League career,” said Peter Schaffer, the agent for Palmer.  It’s a very tough blow for Palmer, who was claimed on waivers by Green Bay in September 2006 after being drafted in the seventh round by St. Louis in ’06 out of Missouri.  Over the summer, the coaches regarded him as the team’s best run blocker.
