    He practiced this week, should play tomorrow. Game is on locally (in WI) at 7pm CDT, national replay Sunday morning on NFLN at 6am PDT.

    First cuts (from 90 to 75) deadline is Tuesday the 1st at 4 EDT. Game 4 is Thursday at 6 CDT (national replay is September 5th at 5pm PDT on NFLN), final cut (75 to 53) deadline is Saturday the 5th at 4 EDT.



    Another roster prediction has Meech making the 53:

    DEFENSIVE BACK (11) – Sam Shields, Casey Hayward, Morgan Burnett, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Micah Hyde, Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins, Sean Richardson, Demetri Goodson, LaDarius Gunter and Chris Banjo
    http://packersnotes.com/2015/08/counting-down-to-53/

    Wilde's got him on the bubble:

    DEFENSIVE BACKS (10)

    In: Sam Shields, Casey Hayward, Morgan Burnett, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Micah Hyde, Sean Richardson, Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins.
    Looking good: LaDarius Gunter.
    On the bubble: Chris Banjo, Demetri Goodson.
    Out: Tay Glover-Wright, Kye Sebetic, Jean Fanor, Ryan White.

    Hayward will be the starter opposite Shields, at least on opening day. The two rookie picks, Randall and Rollins, have been impressive when they’ve been on the field, although Gunter has been easily to move impressive surprise player in camp. It’s hard to picture him not making the team at this point. Goodson, who is supposed to be a crucial special-teams player, still struggles in coverage. If he sticks, it’ll be a decision based on special teams more than anything else. Speaking of which, Banjo’s reliable play in that phase could keep him around another year.

    Michael Cohen on Meech's knee injury which has kept him out this week after practicing last Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday & playing Saturday.

    The same cornerback rating system that afforded undrafted rookie LaDarius Gunter a chance to work with the starting defense spit out numbers indicating Demetri Goodson was worthy of reward.

    Back on the practice field after missing two weeks with a calf injury, Goodson strung together a run of impressive practices that caught the attention of coach Joe Whitt Jr.

    "Three days in a row — boom, boom, boom," Whitt said.

    But the cusp of a serious audition, Goodson immediately suffered another injury, this time to his knee, and his recent stockpile of success began to crumble.

    He didn't get in to the game until late in the 3rd, but as I watched him he played really well. Had a great tackle where he shot past two potential blockers and really leveled a guy. But doesn't look good when he was out the first two games and now likely the last game.

    Didn't dress tonight, we'll have to wait until tomorrow or Saturday to see if he makes the initial 53.

    Bob McGinn on Meech:

    Untimely injury: Goodson, who had a raft of injuries in college, shouldn't be worrying about "The Turk" but probably is because he has missed so much time.

    After missing two games with a calf injury, Goodson's 20-snap stint against the Eagles possibly marked his best work in a Packers' uniform. It projected him alongside rookies Quinten Rollins, Damarious Randall and LaDarius Gunter, and as possibly the best special-teams player of the group might have given him the inside track for a uniform on Sundays.

    Then he came up with a knee injury last week in practice and couldn't play Thursday night.

    We'll find out tomorrow.

    For now. With two defensive lineman out with suspensions (1 game and 3 games), when they come back the packers will have to make room. Hopefully by then he'll be healthy and be able to show them again how well he's playing.

    Yeah, I'm guessing Walker gets cut when Datone comes back. When Guion is back, probably between Banjo & Meech.

    I'm guessing White, but we'll see. Glad they brought Jones back.

    Meech was active today, and got some special teams action. He was active over 2 other DBs, which I think is an indication of his special teams value.

    I honestly think they would've released him over Gaston this week, but while he's injured they'd have to reach an injury settlement to let him go.

    Goodson limited in practice yesterday & today, but sounds like he's making progress.

    Meech is in on defense tonight, due to injuries in the secondary.

    Yep. Joe Buck just called his name after he made tackle on opening kickoff of 2nd half.
    “I don’t expect us to be perfect anytime soon,” guard Silas Melson said, “but one thing I do expect is trying to get better every day and playing tougher, harder and more physical than the opponent.”

    Mentioned in the final Packers report card from JSOnline:


    Janis (15 tackles) and Demetri Goodson (12) were instrumental in NFL-best punt coverage (4.2). Their aggressiveness as gunners helped Tim Masthay break Jerry Norton's club's record for net punt average (40.2)

    Meech is back from his suspension and is active today. Starting CB just went down, so he's now playing.
