Raiders | 24-13 Winners

Fri, 31 Aug 2001 23:12:18 -0700

The Associated Press reports the Oakland Raiders defeated the Green Bay Packers 24-13 on Friday. Raiders RB Tyrone Wheatley had a 49-yard TD run in the first quarter. The NFL's top rushing team last season racked up 263 yards of total offense in the first half. QB Rich Gannon only played two series. RB Terry Kirby's 1-yard TD plunge and a 37-yard FG by PK Sebastian Janikowski closed out the Raiders first half scoring. Green Bay got two field goals from PK Ryan Longwell, but they scored no TDs after QB Brett Favre left the game. Favre threw a 87-yard TD pass to WR Corey Bradford in the first quarter. Packers backup RBs Herbert Goodman and De'Mond Parker both were held to small yardage.

Packers | Whisper To Start

Thu, 30 Aug 2001 06:28:19 -0700

The Journal Sentinel reports with the Green Bay Packers top three RBs hurting, Dorsey Levens, Ahman Green and Rondell Mealey, Herbert "Whisper" Goodman will get the start against the Raiders in this week's pre-season finale. His performance will go a long way to determining his future. Last week against the Dolphins, Goodman had trouble getting anything going when he replaced Mealey in the No. 1 offense. He did play well in the second half against the Dolphins second and third string defense. Goodman and De'Mond Parker are fighting for a roster spot.

Packers | Shopping Around?

Mon, 27 Aug 2001 20:55:35 -0700

The Journal Sentinel reports the Green Bay Packers were reportedly on the phones Monday attempting to shop one of their extra RBs. Unless the Packers swing a trade before rosters are reduced to 53, they will be forced to cut two or three from the group and get nothing in return. RBs Dorsey Levens and Ahman Green seem to be locked in, but Rondell Mealey, De'Mond Parker and Herbert Goodman were all available for the right price. The Packers could receive an offer for FBs William Henderson or Matt Snider as well. Candidates for acquiring a RB reportedly include the Baltimore Ravens, Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.

Packers | Running Back Notes

Sun, 19 Aug 2001 16:20:37 -0700

The Press-Gazette reports the Green Bay Packers will only give RB Ahman Green one quarter of action on Monday night while the rest of the starting offense is expected to play most of the first-half of the game. The team wants to give backup RBs Rondell Mealey, De'Mond Parker and Herbert Goodman plenty of time to run with the first unit. All three are in a battle for the team's No. 3 running back position.

Packers | Backup RB Competition

Sun, 12 Aug 2001 22:59:57 -0700

The Journal Sentinel reports Green Bay Packers RBs coach Sylvester Croom stated RB De'Mond Parker isn't out of the mix for the team's No. 3 back just because RB Rondell Mealey saw the majority of the action after RB Dorsey Levens injured his hand over the weekend. Croom said Parker could see the majority of the work this week, as could RB Herbert Goodman.

Packers | Mealey Looking For A Shot

Wed, 25 Jul 2001 17:45:23 -0700

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Green Bay Packers RB Rondell Mealey is looking for a shot at making the team after missing all of the 2000 season with a knee injury. "His lateral movement is still questionable, but there is no rush," RB coach Sylvester Croom said. "We know he still has ability and can contribute." Mealey is expected to be ready for full practices in time for training camp. De'Mond Parker, Herbert Goodman and Mealey will battle for playing time behind Dorsey Levens and Ahman Green.

Packers | Mini-camp RB Notes

Sun, 29 Apr 2001 23:43:07 -0700

The Journal Sentinel's Bob McGinn reports Green Bay Packers RB Ahman Green has the early edge over Dorsey Levens at RB. Levens still can't work without developing soreness in his right knee that required arthroscopic surgery almost six months ago. Coach Mike Sherman said Green has looked "excellent." No. 3 RB De'Mond Parker is up from 188 pounds to 205. The Packers wanted him to put on some weight, but 205 is too big. Herbert "Whisper" Goodman played well during the mini-camp.

Packers | More On Levens

Sat, 28 Apr 2001 04:31:19 -0700

As a follow up to an earlier report, the Press Gazette reports Green Bay Packers RB Dorsey Levens was able to suit up for both of Friday's practices. He ran in individual drills, but not in team exercises (when the offense lined up and executed plays) and avoided all forms of contact. Levens told team officials he was sore after the first practice, but seemed to have no problems running straight ahead. RB De'Mond Parker filled in behind RB Ahman Green.

Packers | RB Update

Wed, 24 Jan 2001 22:21:12 -0800

The Journal Sentinel reports even though Green Bay Packers coach Mike Sherman pays a lot of compliments to RB Ahman Green for his 2000 season, he's not ready to commit to him as the featured back for 2001. "I'm not going to tell you right now that he's the guy," Sherman said. Sherman knows that Dorsey Levens could be back too. Levens' agent, Hadley Engelhard, began negotiating with the Packers to lower Levens' salary a day after Levens suffered what would be a season-ending knee injury at Miami on October 29. Levens has said he is willing to take a pay cut, but if the Packers and Levens do not reach an agreement, the team would probably release Levens before a roster bonus is due to be paid in March and save $4.5 million against the 2001 cap. If Levens left Herbert Goodman, De'Mond Parker and Rondell Mealey would be the only other RBs on the roster - in addition to Green.

Packers | Various Notes

Fri, 31 Dec 1999 12:41:09 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Basil Mitchell will serve as Dorsey Levens' backup. The Rashaan Salaam signing is more for next year, he will not play this Sunday against Arizona. De'Mond Parker tore both his ACL & MCL. Next year is in doubt and more than likely will be put on the physically unable to perform list to start the season, meaning he cannot play in the first six regular season games. Wide Receiver Antonio Freeman has not practiced, he has the flu. Corey Bradford returned to practice on Wednesday after missing practice due to a death in his family. Defensive end Vaughn Booker (pneumonia), linebacker Anthony Davis (hamstring), right tackle Earl Dotson (back) and left tackle Ross Verba (knee) have not practiced. Keith McKenzie's days as a Packer appear to be coming to a close. He has rejected an offer that will pay him about $3 million a year. That would make him the highest paid non-starter in NFL history. He wants about $4 million a year and to be a starter. As it appears that Vaughn Booker would be unable to play Sunday, the team has said Cledius Hunt will start instead of Keith McKenzie. The Packers refuse to comment regarding that move.

Packers | Various Notes

Wed, 29 Dec 1999 06:05:05 -0800

Rookie running back De'Mond Parker tore an anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and was scheduled to undergo surgery. Rhodes said Parker's injury was serious enough that it might prevent him from starting training camp on time next summer. The Packers also are likely to be without three other players for the game Sunday against Arizona: tackle Ross Verba, linebacker Anthony Davis and safety Scott McGarrahan. Verba aggravated a knee injury and McGarrahan a hamstring injury late last week in practice. Neither player was active Sunday. Davis injured a hamstring in the loss Sunday. Tight end Jeff Thomason also pulled a hamstring.

NFL | Combine Tidbits

Sun, 07 Mar 1999 11:20:00 -0800

Tony Grossi reported in the Cleveland Plain Dealer some notes about the recent combine in Indianapolis. A potential red flag went up on RB Ricky Williams when his outstretched hand only measured seven inches diagonally from pinky to thumb. That would be considered a fairly small hand and raised a question about a potential fumble issue at the NFL level. There were 323 players at the combine and a record 100 declined to participate in the drills. The fastest 40-yard dash times were 4.37 seconds, CB Paul Miranda (Central Florida), 4.41 seconds, RB Cecil Collins, (Ex-McNeese St.) and 4.42 seconds, WR Tai Streets (Michigan). The highest vertical jump: 43.5 inches, RB Jerry Azumah (New Hampshire), 42 inches, S Pierson Prioleau (Virginia Tech), 41.5 inches, RB De'Mond Parker (Oklahoma) and WR Derrius Thompson (Baylor). OT Aaron Gibson (Wisconsin) was the heaviest player at 386 pounds and the lightest non-kicking player was DB Marvin Love (Kentucky) at 164 pounds.
