The Green Bay Packers have placed Reshard Lee on IR, effectively ending his season. This does not bode well for a defensive secondary that has given up over 800 yards and nine touchdowns in four games. Especially since the Packers are getting ready to face a potent New Orleans Saints passing offense that is ranked 13th in the NFL and has amassed 888 yards through the air.

If the New Orleans Saints passing game has a weakness, it's Aaron Brooks' propensity to throw interceptions. Unfortunately, CB Ahmad Carroll has Green Bay's lone interception for the season. Something has got to give. Either the Packers will step up and make some plays in the secondary, or New Orleans will pick Green Bay apart.

TERRANCE MURPHY PLACED ON IR

In other news, the Green Bay Packers have place Terrence Murphy on IR, effectively ending his season. Murphy suffered a bruised spinal cord due to a helmet-to-helmet hit on Monday night. Coach Mike Sherman said that it would take Murphy a minimum of 10 weeks to recover.
