      Both returned to practice today Wednesday 11/23. Sims is designated return from IR and is in a 21 day practice period. He can’t play until week 14 for the final 4 games. Even though Rodgers is at practice, I wouldn’t expect him to play this week.

    I’m guessing D coach Smith doesn’t like tall corners, as we signed another 5 foot nothing CB.

    I Just can’t figure out what happened to Banks, who did pretty good until Lovie’s awful defensive schemes came to town. Not being able to see practices, I’m guessing he never recovered from his knee injury. I was hoping that we would have been able to use his size this year.
