Draft Scout Corey Linsley News
11/25/15 - C Corey Linsley (ankle) didn't practice Tuesday, increasing the likelihood he won't play Thursday night against the Bears. Linsley suffered his injury early in the win at the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday and was replaced by JC Tretter, who would make his first NFL start if Linsley can't go Thursday.
11/24/15 - C Corey Linsley (ankle) may be hard-pressed on a short week to make a quick recovery and have a chance of playing the Thanksgiving night game against the Bears on Thursday. The second-year starter was knocked out of the lopsided win at Minnesota on Sunday in Green Bay's first series of the game, when running back Eddie Lacy rolled into the back of Linsley's leg while being tackled on a run play. JC Tretter filled in for Linsley the rest of the game, and the third-year player would be in line to make his first NFL start Thursday. However, head coach Mike McCarthy on Monday didn't rule out Linsley from playing.
09/05/14 - C Corey Linsley made his first start after being forced into the starting role by injuries, and the rookie fifth-round draft pick didn't get overwhelmed. "I think I did a decent job for my first start," he said, "but obviously that remains to be seen."
09/01/14 - C Corey Linsley was officially named by head coach Mike McCarthy a starter for the season opener at Seattle on Thursday night. Linsley, a fifth-round draft pick this year, replaced JC Tretter at center the last week of the preseason. Tretter is expected to miss at least the first month of the season because of a knee fracture.
05/12/14 - Linsley said the Packers were his favorite team growing up in Youngstown, Ohio. How did that happen? "Actually, I was (former Green Bay quarterback) Brett Favre for Halloween when I was 6 or something," Linsley said. "I have a little cheesehead, too, and I always liked them since then. I don't know why, but I stuck with it. Now, it's just like a childhood dream come true. It's amazing." A short time later, the Packers fulfilled a longtime desire of another player with Big Ten Conference ties. They selected Wisconsin receiver Jared Abbrederis with their compensatory pick (No. 176 overall) near the end of the fifth round.
Abbrederis spent the final day of the draft with family in his hometown of Wautoma, Wis., about 90 miles from Green Bay. "It's crazy right now," Abbrederis said after he received the fateful call from the Packers. "Just being a walk-on at Wisconsin and then being able to have my dream to play in the NFL and now (with) the Packers, which was my team growing up, that's who I rooted for, I'm excited. I can't really explain it. Just a lot of emotions and just excited to be a part of the organization." Abbrederis, who starred at Wisconsin in a dual role at wideout and as a kick returner, is the first Badgers player taken by the Packers in the draft since offensive guard Bill Ferrario in the fourth round in 2001. - The Sports Xchange
