According to a tweet from @Packer Report Shaky Smithson is headed to injured reserve, which is somewhat of a surprising move considering the Packers have already announced that they have said goodbye to Tori Gurley and Chastin West, two wide receivers who were very productive in the preseason.
Shaky, one of the players who vied for best name, was rather unremarkable, at least in preseason games, and this reporter, for one, is questioning this move. I figured with Gurley and West getting the heave-ho, that Smithson would be shown the door as well.
Just goes to show that those in the know certainly do indeed know more than we do on the outside. Though Ted Thompson has had his detractors in the past, we’ve got to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.
And with just about one-half hour before the deadline for the announcement of all cuts, I’m sure this will be one question that Mr. Thompson will be asked.
