Two second-year Packers and two rookies failed their initial physical exams, making them eligible for the regular season PUP list. Four Green Bay Packers  players have failed their initial physicals to start training camp.
Two players, linebacker Curtis Bolton  and offensive tackle Yosh Nijman , ended the 2019 season on injured reserve with injuries. Those two will start training camp on the active/Physically Unable to Perform list, making them eligible for the PUP list when the regular season comes around.
Bolton tore his ACL in the preseason a year ago, the latest in a long line of injuries for the former Oklahoma linebacker. He impressed in the first two-plus preseason games, but was lost in week three of the exhibition slate when the Packers played the Oakland Raiders  on a questionable field in Winnipeg. Nijman ended up on injured reserve late in the season with an elbow injury after starting the year on the practice squad and earning a midseason call-up to the active roster.
These two players are joined on an injury list by a pair of rookies whose final college seasons were also cut short by injury. Simon Stepaniak , one of the Packers’ sixth-round offensive line draft picks, tore his ACL during draft practices and will likely miss much of the 2020 season. He will start camp with a Non-Football Injury designation, given to players whose injuries did not result from NFL practices or games.
Likewise, undrafted rookie running back Patrick Taylor from Memphis suffered foot and ankle injuries as a senior. He played through them to participate in Memphis’ bowl game, but the issues are evidently still affecting him.
Like the PUP players, giving these players an NFI designation allows the team to place them on the regular-season reserve/NFI list should they be unable to start the season healthy. These designations keep them on the 90-man roster for the time being.

No, but guys that might of helped, if they could of developed over the off-season (but probably couldn't, as they were injured).

Bolton looked like our best coverage LB until he was injured, then it was Burks. Now it's Burks or Kirksey, but if they decide to play Kirksey at the physical LB role, could be lots of Safety playing LB again.

Packers are currently quite thin at OT, and the prospect with the most raw potential is Yosh Nijman, as he's a large freak athlete, who was so incredibly raw that he went completely undrafted. He needs development time.

Simon Stepaniak kept suggesting that his Doctor said he'd be back to full go by mid-July, and I kept quietly thinking bullshit. Reportedly an ACL tear around new years and those things usually take minimum 9 months, but sometimes guys don't start moving normal for a year and a half. So I've been thinking he starts off on the PUP list and they try to bring him back mid-year or IR him.

RB Patrick Taylor, I don't think he has a shot to make the roster this year, but he's one of my favorites of this year's undrafted free agents. If he can stick around a year, he might have a shot next year as Jones, Williams and Irvin are FAs.

You are correct. I was merely simplifying my comments.

I don't know what Bolton is going to bring to the team. LB is such a weak position almost anyone will be an upgrade.

The key word for Nijman is raw. It won't matter one iota if he is on the PUP or not. He needs time. Lots and lots of time. Ideally it is better for him to be on the practice field but this is not a normal year. Long run he is destined for the PS this year. Running him through PUP first doesn't change much.

When they drafted Stepaniak I think they knew he would end up on PUP and then IR.

Taylor is Taylor. Barring an injury there wasn't going to be room for him on the 53 roster this season.

Zero2Cool (12h) : Aaron Rodgers: No reason I wouldn’t be back, but no absolutes
Mucky Tundra (12h) : that said i'll probably remember that one when arguing with people about Rodgers
Mucky Tundra (12h) : Getting really tired of hearing those type of factoids in connection when the Packers lose
Zero2Cool (16h) : @NFLonCBS Aaron Rodgers is the only QB in NFL history to have 3 playoff losses in games where he threw 3+ Pass TD.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : During his post game, he even said he understood it.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : I don't think Rodgers was against the FG, he just wasn't aware that was the plan. Huge difference there. Understand it, please.
nerdmann (25-Jan) : Taking the FG is proof that Matt is smarter than Aaron.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : "The funny stuff that happens every day that half of it you can't share, and the other half of it you don't want to. That's what I'm going to remember."
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : Corey Linsley on what he'll remember from the 2020 #Packers season: "The funny stuff that happens every day that half of it you can't share, and the other half of it you don't want to. That's what I'm
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : Reading the comments from all over is disheartening how ungrateful the squeaky wheel fan base is.
yooperfan (25-Jan) : Oh believe me I was Cheesey
Cheesey (25-Jan) : A warden?!? I hope you were on the right side of the bars, Yoop!😂🤪😂
yooperfan (25-Jan) : If I was Rodgers I would retire. I retired 15 years ago because we had a warden who didn’t know how to run a prison and couldn’t tell the truth.
nerdmann (25-Jan) : Kevin King is like Burt Favor. Untrustworthy. Kevin is paying back gambling debts, Burt Favor was blackmailed for his texting habits.
nerdmann (25-Jan) : I'd be shocked if Aaron completed a pass from goal to go in a big game. Or ran it in with a wide open field.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : I wouldn't be shocked if Aaron Rodgers retires.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : That's a coincidence, not irony, lol. Packers always picking late in the round. Gooder drafting is needed though.
TheKanataThrilla (25-Jan) : The same position when the traded down to 33 to draft Kevin King. Irony.
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : Packers will pick at the #29 position in the NFL draft
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : “I sure as hell hope so,” LaFleur said when asked if he thought Rodgers would be back in green and gold in 2021. “The guy’s the MVP of this league. He is the heart and soul of our football team, so he
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : NFL MVP won't be winning Super Bowl, again. Annoying.
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : and I dont think Josh Allen is gonna get it done against Brady
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : I'm rooting for KC cuz I can't stomach Tampa Bay after that game
Cheesey (25-Jan) : So many chances, so many screw ups. KING
Cheesey (25-Jan) : Now I don’t care who wins the SB.
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : whatever problems KC had midseason seem to be gone now
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : oh man TJ Lang from the top rope on Bostick
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : @TJLang70 Nah I think they all actually tried to do their job.
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : @Bostick11 They Still Gonna Blame Me...
Mucky Tundra (24-Jan) : i just want to sit here for the rest of the day and not do anything but that's counterproductive
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : 😥😥😥
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : @RobDemovsky This is the 2011 playoffs all over again. JPP causing havoc. Hail Mary to end the half.
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Let's fucking go!!!
Tezzy (24-Jan) : Go Pack Go!
Mucky Tundra (24-Jan) : i guess they had the tarp down or the photos were old ones because I'm not seeing any snow on the field now
Cheesey (24-Jan) : I’m a nervous wreck right now.
Mucky Tundra (24-Jan) : Just looked at the Packers facebook page; a nice little layer of snow on the ground
nerdmann (24-Jan) : They released Dexter Williams from the PS this week.
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Kevin King is active. Tramon Williams is active. Inactive: Kingsley Keke, Jordan Love, Jonathan Garvin, Jace Sternberger, Josh Jackson, Vernon Scott, Ka’dar Hollman
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : As eagle-eyed @mattschneidman noticed, Kevin King is going through a warm-up on the field. There's no trainer by him, for what it's worth - only Jaire Alexander, with King working on press coverage
nerdmann (24-Jan) : Run it up the gut. See what Vea's got.
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : amesPalmerTV confirmed Arians plan for Vita Vea today is 20 to 25 snaps...
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Not looking good for Winfield Jr per what was just said.
Cheesey (24-Jan) : Keep the flag flying, Yoop!!!😁
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Green Bay is 15-1 in their last 16 games at home against Tampa Bay.
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Geez. Rodgers has less wins more losses than Brady when sub 40°
buckeyepackfan (24-Jan) : GAME DAY! GO! PACK! GO!
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : It's snowing here, but we only have few inches so far, nothing major.
yooperfan (24-Jan) : Snowing like crazy here in Ishpeming. I’m wishing for snow 150 miles south of here. GO PACK GO!!!
