Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 19 vs ARI (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Kuhn was on the field for about 38 percent of the offensive snaps, almost always as a blocker. When the offense switched from a two-tight end set, he came in and helped keep Aaron Rodgers upright and to open holes for Eddie Lacy or James Starks.
2015 Week 18 vs WAS (2 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
As is normally the case, Kuhn was on the field quite a bit but was mostly there for blocking purposes.
2015 Week 17 vs MIN (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Kuhn was in a lot trying to keep Aaron Rodgers upright as a blocker. The offensive line is a mess and he had little luck against a solid pass rush.
2015 Week 16 vs ARI (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
On a day when the offensive line was a mess, it should not come as a shock that Kuhn was mostly a blocker when he was in the game. He carried the ball once but otherwise tried to open holes for other backs and keep Aaron Rodgers from getting sacked to no avail.
2015 Week 15 vs OAK (3 / 12 / 1 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
You can always tell Mike McCarthy is running the offense when you see John Kunn on a fullback dive for a touchdown. McCarthy loves that play. On the run, Kuhn trucked cornerback TJ Carrie on the way into the end zone.
2015 Week 14 vs DAL (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Kuhn was on the field for 44 snaps (or 51 percent of the offensive snaps), primarily as a blocker. He had one very nice catch where he bowled over a defender for more yards and a short carry, but he is not a weapon the team looks at often.
2015 Week 10 vs DET (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kuhn was on the field for just five offensive snaps, and his tiny amount of time on the field continues to shrink. He was targeted once and didn't make the catch.
2015 Week 6 vs SD (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
As is normally the case, fullback John Kuhn continues to be primarily a blocker, with the occasional carry or dump off pass coming infrequently. He did have a very nice catch and run late in the third quarter, as he ran a short out and was left unaccounted for. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers saw that and quickly tossed him the ball, which the wide open Kuhn caught and ran for the first down and more. Overall, Kuhn continues to be nothing more than a gimmick, albeit one the fans love.
2015 Week 5 vs STL (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kuhn continues to primarily be a blocker when he is not being a brief distraction. His three yards were the most he's had all season in a game.
2015 Week 4 vs SF (1 / 1 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
There seems to be nothing head coach Mike McCarthy loves more than a fullback dive on the one-yard line, which is where Kuhn ended up scoring his touchdown. The play was actually a nice bit of misdirection on quarterback Aaron Rodgers' part, as Kuhn was lined up in front of running back Eddie Lacy. Rodgers turned and handed the ball to Kuhn, but continued to mime a handoff to Lacy. The defense stepped to Lacy, while Kuhn ran into the end zone virtually untouched. Overall, Kuhn doesn't do this often, and is normally just a blocker.
Latest NewsPackers | Fan fave John Kuhn to hit market? (Thu Feb 4, 12:59 AM) - Green Bay Packers impending free-agent FB John Kuhn would like to play another year or two. While his blocking has been on the decline, and he is 33 years old, he is a favorite of QB Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy. Our View: The team brought on Aaron Ripkowski as an eventual replacement for Kuhn, but the leadership the veteran brings cannot be overlooked. The Packers will try to bring him back, but at the right price only.
