Now I'm curious about Sternberger.

He hasn't participated in camp since August 5th.

Based on such little info coming out about him, until today, it could be anyones guess as to whether or not he's going to be any kind of an asset on the 53 this year.
Going with 4 TE's and one of them doing nothing all season isn't something I'm really comfortable thinking about.

But it's totally in line with what the Packers have done in recent years, especially with young and developing players. Last year, for instance, the Packers allowed Moore, Tonyan, and Light to eat up roster spots even though none of them made a significant contribution.

Moreover, I'm not sure Sternberger's injury matters much in terms of the depth chart: most assumed he would receive negligible snaps this year as he adjusted to the game both mentally and physically. I know I didn't expect Sternberger to contribute much of anything in year one given the TEs already on the roster.

Not sure I understand the Lazard @ FB logic?

Also, I’m getting the feeling that Sternberger goes to IR. Somebody needs to take out Lonnie Johnson’s kneecaps.

Plus Ibrahim Campbell will start season on PUP, IMO.

Sternberger back and practicing today, plans to play against the Raiders.

Yep. Just saw that.

First peep I’ve heard about Sternberger since he got earholed by Johnson

MLF has other plans for Sternberger.

1) Oops ! That was meant to be Vitale. Well done for picking it up.............it proves you read through it !
2) You are probably right on Ibrahim as well, I'm hoping he can be ready, but my including him is more about me seeing him in the longer term plans (ie through the majority of the season).
3) Sternberger to IR. Another good call that would free up another spot as I doubt he would be anything other than an inactive through this season if he was on the roster. Of course, like Oren Burks, he would have to be on the roster to start with, to then go on IR.

This one is for you craig.

Aaron Rodgers on @Equanimeous: "Almost quietly, I think EQ has had a really nice camp. I think he's been very consistent. We haven't talked about him a lot, which is actually a positive. It's almost like, 'Yeah, well, he's on the squad.' He's been that good."

It is becoming an annual thing, Packers fans and their over estimation of the WR's on the 90 man roster. The chatter of Darius Shepherd and Allen Lazard has gone from feel good underdog stories to over the top roster locks hyperbole. Barring injuries to others they are still very much longshots to make the opening day 53 roster. Shepherd seems to be the ideal PS player for this season.

And no Lazard isn't going to magically become a FB overnight, if he makes the roster it will be as a 6th or 7th WR only.
