Green Bay has seen one of its undrafted rookies decide to step away from football, as first reported by Michael Cohen of The Athletic.The player is Davis Koppenhaver, a tight end from Duke University. The 6-foot-4, 245-pound Koppenhaver was a member of the Packers’ initial undrafted free agent class this year, and he received a $7 https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Corey-Linsley-Jersey
,000 signing bonus to come play in Green Bay. The Packers have announced that he is now on the reserve/retired list, which frees up a spot on the roster.Koppenhaver has reportedly found other opportunities outside of football that interest him more than continuing his NFL career. As a player who already has a graduate degree in management studies from Duke, he likely had job offers outside of the sport after finishing up his collegiate career.Ranked as the 86th player on the Packers’ 90-man roster in APC’s recent ranking, Koppenhaver had a tall order to make the team out of training camp this fall. The Packers have two established veteran tight ends in Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis, along with third-round draft pick Jace Sternberger, second-year pro Robert Tonyan Jaire Alexander Jersey
, and first-year player Evan Baylis. With three of those players guaranteed roster spots, it would have been a difficult task to break into the rotation.APC wishes good luck to Koppenhaver in his post-football endeavors. With nothing to play for, the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets are competing for pride and to put some good reps on tape. However, the risk of injury is real, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers has already taken some big hits after just 16 minutes of game time.However, one of Rodgers’ blockers suffered an injury early on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Left guard Lane Taylor injured his knee late in the first quarter of the game and is questionable to return to the game.While pass-blocking for Rodgers Lane Taylor Color Rush Jersey
, Taylor and Bakhtiari were engaged with Jets’ defenders. Bakhtiari rolled up over Taylor’s leg, seemingly bending it back a bit at the knee. Taylor was announced as questionable to return.Then, early in the second quarter, cornerback Jaire Alexander left the game with an injury of his own. The Packers announced that his issue was a groin injury and he is also questionable to come back in the game.The Packers currently trail the Jets 14-0 in the second quarter.UPDATE: Just after halftime, the Packers ruled Alexander out for the game.
