It’s now official —he Green Bay Packers will end the season on injured reserve. After Muhammad Wilkerson’s and Mike Daniels’ seasons ended earlier this fall Vince Biegel Color Rush Jersey , Kenny Clark is now headed to injured reserve. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the news, which has not yet been confirmed by the Packers.Clark suffered an elbow injury in the team’s week 14 victory over the Atlanta Falcons and was inactive on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. It seems possible that he may have been able to play down the stretch if the Packers were still alive in the playoff race, but with nothing to play for the team has apparently elected to shut him down for the final two games.In his third NFL season, Clark emerged as the star on the Packers’ line Justin Vogel Jersey , sustaining his late-season success from 2017. He recorded 4.5 sacks over the final five games last year, then kept that success going with six sacks this season in 13 games of action. He also forced one fumble and recovered two more this year.Clark was named as a first alternate for the Pro Bowl on Tuesday evening, but this shutdown likely means that he will not make the team even if an alternate is needed. Clark’s four-year rookie contract runs through 2019, but it is a sure bet that the Packers will execute their team option for a fifth season in 2020 given his exceptional play.With Clark’s season over https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Kyle-Murphy-Jersey , the Packers will suit up Dean Lowry, Tyler Lancaster, Montravius Adams, and Fadol Brown in the final two games of the season. Even though he didn’t make the final group of nominees for 2019 Justin McCray Color Rush Jersey , LeRoy Butler’s chances of getting enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame seem to be increasing by the year.The safety position has been a tough sell to hall of fame voters as both Butler and former Denver Broncos safety Steve Atwater have fallen short though Atwater was a finalist this year while Butler was a semi-finalist. Ed Reed of the Baltimore Ravens was elected as a first ballot candidate this year. Atwater really is the biggest obstacle to Butler’s election despite Butler producing better statistics as well as more selections as an all-pro. There’s also former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver safety John Lynch in the way, though Lynch continues to fall short of Canton as well.Butler also played on a defense that featured Reggie White. Is the safety being overshadowed by the Minister of Defense in the eyes of some voters? It’s possible.Regardless, Butler still stands a solid chance to make it to Canton and hopefully his wait won’t be nearly as long as Jerry Kramer’s, who was finally inducted this past summer.You can read more on Butler’s hall of fame odds plus Packers’ new offensive line coach gets a big endorsement from a former player of his in today’s cheese curds.Hall of Fame window cracking open for former Packers safety LeRoy Butler—PackersNews.comThere are more factors at play than just other safety candidates.
