Footballguys view: Ahman Green goes back to Nebraska where he was a star for the Cornhuskers. The veteran back could still get the call up to the NFL when training camp injuries strike, but in the meantime should be a feature back for the Nighthawks.

  Packers | Week 7 Inactives    Sun Oct 25, 11:44 AM

The Green Bay Packers have declared RB Ahman Green, OT Chad Clifton, OG Evan Dietrich-Smith, DL Jarius Wynn, WR Jordy Nelson, FB Korey Hall, OT Mark Tauscher, SS Matt Giordano inactive for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Nelson should be out for at least a few more weeks, giving James Jones the full-time WR3 job and making him a viable desperation start. Rookie TJ Lang will start in place of Clifton at left tackle.

Updating a previous report, Rob Demovsky, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, reports Green Bay Packers RB Ahman Green said he does not believe he will be ready to play in Week 7. 'I think that one is kind of out of the boundary,' Green said. 'To have a goal like that, to be ready for Sunday, that's kind of a big goal. I think it's going to be more realistic the week after that or the week after that.'

Footballguys view: DeShawn Wynn is on IR, so Brandon Jackson will get any carries that don't go to Ryan Grant.

  Rams | Ahman Green on the 'ready' list    Fri Aug 21, 10:52 AM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports free agent running back Ahman Green visited Rams Park on Wednesday, but no signing is imminent. He is simply on the St. Louis Rams' "ready list" of potential players to consider if the team suffers an injury at the position or decides to make a move.

Footballguys view: Green would not be a threat to Steven Jackson, but could provide them with veteran depth. He would compete with Samkon Gado, Antonio Pittman, and Kenneth Darby if signed, and could make the final roster because of his versatility and experience.
