CB Tramon Williams Has Just a Bruised Shoulder

The Packers dodged a potentially scary injury in their Thursday night opening win over the Saints.

Cornerback Tramon Williams left the field Thursday night holding his arm, the kind of moment that can make a team hold its collective breath.

Turns out there’s no serious issue. He suffered what coach Mike McCarthy said was a bruised shoulder, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. While McCarthy didn’t deliver any kind of timetable, the Packers now have 10 days to prepare for Week 2. Williams isn’t expected to miss an extended period of time, refreshing news for a team that suffered so many injuries a year ago.

    What a relief…we do not need a repeat of the fifteen players placed on IR last year…So, it looks like we’ve come through this one relatively unscathed…

    I also read the list of our eight players on the practice squad…I noticed neither Campbell nor Ricky Elmore were included…Two offensive lineman: Genus (center) and Dominguez (guard)…One QB: Harrell…Three wide receivers: West, Gurley, and Borel…One RB: Saine…and lastly, One DB: B. Ross.

    Also, noted that Lawrence Guy was placed on IR (concussion)…I know I’d read Shaky Smithson was also placed on IR, but, did not see him listed…Did he take an injury-related settlement, in hopes he could catch on elsewhere?
