Raji Not Running Well Enough to Get Back on the Field

It appears that as of now, B.J. Raji is not running well enough to be back in the lineup after his ankle injury:

Mike McCarthy said that Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji was held out of the game Sunday because he still isn’t running the way he should be. Raji sprained an ankle in the final exhibition game and returned to practice last week, but after watching the rookie move around, McCarthy didn’t think he was back to his old self. “He doesn’t have a full gait back,” McCarthy said. “He’s not running without a limp. He feels good. He just has to get over that last hurdle, and that comes down to strength. We just didn’t feel he was 100 percent, and I didn’t think it was smart to expose him when he’s not 100 percent.”
