Thursday Injury Report Should Have Some Nice Surprises

September 24, 2009

I’m eagerly awaiting this afternoon’s injury report. I’ll be sure to post it here once it shows up on PackPride or WRAL, but from what I hear, it sounds like Pack fans will be pleasantly surprised to see some starters no longer on it.

From a couple of sources, I’ve heard that safeties Clem Johnson, Javon Walker and offensive lineman Jake Vermiglio all stand a chance to clear the report and make themselves available for the Pitt game.

All three would be welcome additions back into the lineup, but perhaps none more than Vermiglio. As starting left tackle to begin the year, he left the South Carolina game early with a calf injury. Julian Williams had to shift over from left guard to left tackle and as a result, Wilson got chased down several times by SC’s ultra-fast defensive ends. Having Vermiglio back would help against a Pitt defensive line that has ends just as athletic as SC’s.

So keep your eyes peeled…I may end up with a lot of egg on my face on this one, but it wouldn’t be the first time Tom O’Brien got coy with his depth charts and injury reports the week of a big game.
