I am a little amazed that he feels the Packers could have an elite line when we are not sure who is going to be on the line.

Myers Will Play It Safe After Knee Injury
The hand-picked successor to All-Pro Corey Linsley, second-round pick Josh Myers played barely one-fourth of the snaps as a rookie.
BILL HUBER1 HOUR AGO
GREEN BAY, Wis. – One knee injury is more than enough for Green Bay Packers center Josh Myers.

Myers has been wearing knee braces throughout the offseason practices. It’s not just a precautionary measure for the practice field or a way to help ensure his safety until training camp. Rather, that’s how Myers intends to play this season.

“I am planning on wearing double knee braces on both of my knees,” Myers said after Tuesday’s organized team activity. “Just protect them. Done with that. That’s my plan and I feel good about it.”

Knee braces aren’t nationally mandated by the NCAA but they’re almost universally used as they’re required by most schools. However, they’re rarely used in the NFL – in practices or games – as players try to get every little advantage possible. While braces protect knees, they come with an unavoidable trade-off. Braces prevent knees from being bent or twisted the wrong way, so they also decrease mobility. That’s a big deal when you have to block Aaron Donald or get in front of Roquan Smith on a screen.

“They’re not super-light, they’re not super-flexible, so those are the areas where they affect you the most,” Myers said. “Sometimes they make your legs a little more tired but those are all things I’m willing to work around.”

You can hardly blame Myers after injuries limited him to about 26 percent playing time last season as the team’s second-round pick and hand-picked successor to All-Pro center Corey Linsley.

Myers, the first center off the board in the 2021 draft, played through a broken finger for the first four games of the season, then missed the Week 5 game at Cincinnati when the finger became infected. He returned a week later but suffered a knee injury on his fourth play at Chicago. It was actually two injuries, a torn medial collateral ligament and tibial plateau fracture, that required two surgeries.

Myers missed 10 games, finally returning for the Week 18 finale at Detroit and the playoff loss to San Francisco.

“After the surgery, I kind of just decided that one knee surgery was good enough for me. I didn’t really feel like having two,” Myers said. “The knee braces for me, they really don’t bother me that much. So, I felt like it was a small sacrifice to make to protect my knees.”

Having started all of Ohio State’s 21 games during his final two seasons, sitting out for a lengthy period only added to the pain.

“I learned a lot about myself. It was an incredibly difficult time, if I’m being honest,” he said. He added, “It was just such a different experience. I learned how to push through. I’ve been able to push through things physically when it’s challenging. When something’s that mentally challenging, it’s just a whole different level of pushing through. I learned how to do that. It’s just something I’ve never done.”

Myers said he wasn’t fully healthy when he returned to face the Lions and didn’t get to 100 percent until about a month after the season.

Now, through the passage of time and extensive rehab, he’s healthy. And he knows the offense infinitely better than he did at this time last year. After falling short in the national championship hunt during his four seasons at Big Ten juggernaut Ohio State and in the Super Bowl hunt during his rookie season for the NFC North dynamo Packers, Myers has no shortage of motivation to play to expectations and to win a championship.

“It goes through my mind a lot,” he said. “You know, I’ve had the fortune – or misfortune, I guess, of how you look at it – of being really close a lot in my career to a ring, whether that be a national championship in college or a Super Bowl in the NFL. So, it’s been, being close but not quite being there has been something that’s motivated me the last several offseasons.”


It’s about time somebody had the brains enough to wear knee braces these even though they don’t look cool. Especially at the center position, I think this is a especially smart thing for him to do.

I agree. Especially for a guy that already had a damaged knee.
If you can learn to play at a high level while having the brace on, why not use them?

I'm not sure it matters much who is on the OL as it does the health of the OL. When the five play every snap together, that becomes source of the strength. It's always the sum of the parts, not the individual parts. So, we get good coaching and good health, the line will do well. Plus, it helps to have a MVP QB able to bail them out too.

For the most part. You can have 4 pro bowl caliber guys on the line and a real clunker at RG. It affects the overall quality of the line.

Yes, because that RG missed time. If you have four pro bowlers with one clunker playing every snap for 12-14 games, the OL will play fantastic. We saw something similar in 2014 OL. If you have solid guys around you, it helps a lot.

Problem is, if you have a weak link on your line, the other team knows it and will go hard after that guy.
As the old saying goes, you are only as strong as your weakest link.

Honestly I think it's too early and Packers OL is being given too much credit.

Sure they did well despite injuries last year, but they also had Rodgers finally getting the ball out almost ASAP... Rodgers might of set a career record with how fast the hot rod of the ball, and without Adams, that's not going to happen as quickly. But Packers OL looked a lot better because Rodgers and Adams getting the ball out quickly.

Don't get me wrong, they have great potential when they're fully healthy and the youngsters are more developed... but I was to see Bak/Jenkins/Myers get/stay healthy, and Runyan/ Myers/ Newman/ draft rookies all to take another step up first... before going as far as saying elite.

Elite potential, but I think it might be a year early for it to actually happen.

dfosterf (7h) : Was mentioned. I, personally, do not care for it at all, and would very much appreciate it if you would just go ahead and cut him. Thank you in advance ☺️
dfosterf (7h) : As to your acquisition of a qb, the matter has been discussed here previously. While some seem ambivalent about you having Trevor- something about regular season vs playoffs
dfosterf (8h) : It's all quite confusing
dfosterf (8h) : First Jersey confuses you with me, then you confuse Jersey with me, O hott
dhazer (14h) : ok shit I am taking down the marine my bad
dhazer (14h) : hell i am taking jersey down with guys I picked up off the waiver wire including my QB lol

Zero2Cool (23h) : The avatar is an overlord. If you can't get that through your senile brain, that's you being an dumbass. Enough about it already.\
Zero2Cool (23h) : CB Jaire Alexander suited up for #Packers jog thru practice Wednesday. Same for WR Christian Watson.
