The Facts: Morency's knee injury is more serious than initially believed, and he likely will miss two weeks of practice, HC Mike McCarthy said today.
Diehards Line:Morency hasn't practiced since Saturday. McCarthy declined to discuss specifics of the injury, which was described Sunday by GM Ted Thompson as a contusion. The Packers' first pre-season game is 12 days away, so Morency likely will miss that game. In addition to giving rookie Brandon Jackson more time with the first team offense, Morency's absence reinforces the notion that he's not physical enough to serve as an NFL feature back.
