Legendary senior writer jclombardi reports Packers news.
The Packers have settled two positional battles in training camp. OLB Zombo suffered a broken scapula meaning he will miss significant playing time (close to 4 to 6 weeks) and/or may be headed to the injured reserve. With OLB Jones not 100% recovering from a bruised knee injury, OLB Walden appears to be the front runner for the right OLB starter position. Meanwhile, coach McCarthy told reporters in his press conference that veteran OG T. J. Lang will now be the starting left guard after the dismal showing of rookie OL Sherrod in the past two preseason games. This is no surprise since the rookie needs a great deal of seasoning for the big time in the NFL.
