When asked about Gary's shoulder, Gute gave a somewhat nuanced answer.  Used a qualifier like "for now", or maybe "not for this year" regarding the possible need for an operation. 

We've also seen comments that *if* he underwent surgery, it wouldn't be a 12 month rehab, but more a lesser number of months, maybe 4-5 months or less? 

With combine and stuff, this was not a winter to do that. 

But I wonder if after a season or two, maybe Gute figures that if needed they can schedule an operation in January, and have six months till camp opens?  Or, if the team is out of playoff race early, maybe do it in December?

Other thought is that there seems some inconsistency between some views.  The one is that it's not a big deal, lineman aren't reach high often, etc..  The other is that it was a big deal, and explains some of the alleged downturn in sacks and on-field effectiveness this year.  At the logic level, I think we can't both dismiss the impact future but also use it to rationalize reduction in sacks and college performance last year.  Either it has no impact future or past; or else it had impact past and will probably have impact again in future (if un-fixed).

Gary and the doctor know about his shoulder. They can x-ray and see how much slippage has been done. Many linemen use that harness, some precautionary and some because they need that restricted movement. I suspect Gary is in that precautionary group.
Will he eventually get an operation? I suspect so, but he can wait for the best timing.

Packers sign Jawill Davis (second year UDFA) from the Giants. It's believed he'll be used to compete with Trevor Davis as a returner.

Packers have released RB Lavon Coleman, back to 89 players they go. I'm sure their is more to come.

There has been a good volume of players waived today as teams massage their rosters, I'm thinking the Packers released Coleman to open up a spot for a potential waiver claim from another team.

And just like that the Packers are back to 90 players........for the moment anyways.

#Packers have claimed WR Jawill Davis on waivers from the #Giants. Former undrafted free agent from Bethune-Cookman in 2018 is also a return specialist.

I agree with you ricky that he adds another player with some return history and the Packers do not have many that do at this moment, but honestly he wasn't great at it (average on KO and below average on PR) and likely the reason the Giants dumped him. I will be surprised if he is more than a camp body, but they do need competition for every position.

The Packers signed their 2nd round pick Elgton Jenkins today, leaving only 3rd rounder Jace Sternberger unsigned.

Tyson was a player I thought the Packers may have an interest in when the Texans waived him. He was Seattle's 6th round pick in 2017 and is a player who has played corner and safety, matched the Packers profile coming out of the Univ. of Cincinnati.

Also waived WR Matthew Eaton to make room for Tyson.

Just so long as he doesn't bite the ears off of WRs...... :D

No relations, but do remember him being quoted during the draft process that growing up he had to be tough because of his name and others wanting to fight him because of it.
