Kenoy Kennedy Ruled Out For Sunday's Game

Already this week it was announced that Alex Lewis would miss the Green Bay game, and now another player on defense will be watching from the sidelines.  Starting strong safety Kenoy Kennedy won't be playing on Sunday against the Packers due to a foot injury.

Kennedy injured his foot last week against Chicago, and initially was listed as week-to-week.  That has been downgraded since he is out for the game in a couple of days.

Starting in Kennedy's spot is rookie and second round draft pick Daniel Bullocks.  Bullocks was drafted back in April to fill a hole in the depth of the secondary, and already he's being called upon to start.  Bullocks looked good in the preseason, so I don't think it'll be that greatly of a drop off from starter to backup.

Also, there is some other injury news that is on the positive side for the Green Bay game. Starting tight end Casey FitzSimmons is expected to return to the field for the first time since the very first preseason game. FitzSimmons has been recovering from a wrist injury, and will be great to have back on the field. Jon McGraw, who sustained a concussion against Chicago, also should play this weekend.
