Desmond Bishop To Have Surgery, Season Might Be Over

Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Packers ILB Desmond Bishop will require surgery on his right hamstring.

Bishop injured himself in Thursday’s game against the Chargers after having his right leg rolled up on, while trying to tackle RB Ronnie Brown. Initial reports suggested that he suffered a knee and hamstring injury, but it wound up being just torn hamstring that could end up forcing the Packers to place him on IR. The NFL has changed the IR rules to allow one player to come off the list later in the season, so there’s a chance that he could be back if the Packers make another postseason run.

Bishop, who was Green Bay’s leading tackler last season, is scheduled to undergo surgery in the coming days and it seems that his place will be taken by second-year linebacker D.J. Smith.
