(RotoWire) Bishop injured his right leg in Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers, the Associated Press reports. Analysis: Bishop was unable to put any weight on his leg as he headed toward the sideline midway through the first quarter of the game, which is probably not the best sign. More on his status as we know it.

We'll see tomorrow carted off

Quote :
The Packers fear ILB Desmond Bishop will miss "a good portion, if not all" of the upcoming season due to a severe right hamstring injury.

It sounds like a rupture of the muscle. Coach Mike McCarthy conceded after the preseason opener that Bishop's injury "didn't look very good," and he underwent testing Friday morning. Although Bishop initially appeared to suffer injuries to both his knee and hamstring, the knee checked out fine. It sounds like he may be sidelined for months with the hamstring injury, though.

Huge blow for the Packers and IDPers who owned this cat.

The problem in my other league is I'm loaded, so I'm short on roster spots. I almost wish he would go to the IR.

(RotoWire) Bishop will need surgery on his hamstring and a decision regarding a placement on IR will follow that procedure, the Packers' official Twitter feed reports. Analysis: Unfortunately for the Packers, it sounds like they will be without Bishop's services for a significant portion of the season even if he manages to avoid landing on injured reserve. It's unclear who at this time will replace Bishop at middle linebacker, but 2011 sixth-round pick D.J. Smith might be the front runner for the opportunity.

This has been a rumor for months (since March at least). I'm surprised that others are surprised. If Bishop agrees to a contract restructure, then he stays. If not, then he'll be the starting MLB for Minnesota.

That would suck for those whom grabbed Erin Henderson.

True, but Henderson has never played a 3 down role before. So Henderson would just slide over to WLB and play all 3 downs. I would still expect a career best year for Henderson either way.

He (Henderson) has proven to be shaky in a 3 down role so yet to earn the coaches full trust for that

I thought tried him in a 3 down roll early last year for a couple weeks and it didn't work out - if they didn't actually try it I know they talked about it

He definitely spent time in the nickel last year. He can't cover very well, but he wasn't as terrible as Jasper Brnkley. I winced every time I saw him whip around and drop to the deep middle coverage.

I am 1000% in favor of getting Bishop in Purple. It would surely help both the Vikings and the Slings.

We apparently had TWO Bishop topics, both started by Lance, so I merged them.

Looks like it's official:

Quote :
The Packers will release Bishop (hamstring), Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. Analysis: Bishop, who missed all of last season with a hamstring injury, was set to make $3.464 million this season, a figure the team wasn't comfortable with paying the inside linebacker. In any case, Bishop says he'll be ready to go for training camp and it shouldn't be long before a linebacker-needy team scoops him up.

Quote :
The Vikings are expected to make a "strong run" at free agent ILB Desmond Bishop.

The Bears were also rumored to have interest in Bishop at one point, but have likely moved on after using a second-round pick on Jon Bostic. Bishop's addition would suck the life out of interim MLB Erin Henderson's prospective IDP value. After missing all of 2012 with a ruptured hamstring, Bishop insists he's 100 percent healed. The Vikings will make sure during their forthcoming physical.

Would fit in nicely with the Vikings.

Free agent ILB Desmond Bishop tells CBS Sports' Pat Kirwan that he "may consider" signing with the Giants.
Bishop could also consider the Jaguars or Packers. He'd be a monster upgrade on Mark Herzlich or Dan Connor at middle linebacker for the G-Men. Kirwan gets the sense that Bishop will pick a team by the end of Thursday night. His only known visits have been to the Vikings and Chiefs on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively. The soon-to-be 29-year-old would be a fit with any of the five squads.

That would be big for his IDP value

(KFFL) The New York Giants likely would only be interested in free-agent LB Desmond Bishop (Packers) if he were willing to accept a one-year deal for the minimum salary. The team only has $3.3 million in salary cap space.

lets go already - just sign SOMEWHERE

Why even use linebackers? What the hell is the deal with the G men and linebackers? I don't understand.

Analysis: The report notes that Bishop is expected to compete at both the team's middle and weak side linebacker slots. The ex-Packer missed the entire 2012 season with a torn hamstring, but says he'll be ready to go for training camp and assuming no injury setbacks, Bishop will have a good chance to revive his IDP prospects as a Viking.

THINK I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED THE GIANTS BUT HE SHOULD BE DECENT HERE TOO

Meh...had been holding out hope that KC would nab him.  Bishop and Johnson on the inside would have been fierce.  If Bishop is really healthy, of course.

Well I had seen his value picking up this off-season as it looked like he'd be a 3 down back. So it dropped to where it was.

Vikings will have a pretty good LB unit now with Greenway, Bishop and Henderson.  

I'm assuming Bishop will be MLB with Greenway at SLB still and Henderson at WLB.

Ahh... great minds think alike!  You beat me to a very similar post some split second before I posted!!!  Yeah, not a super day for NFC North fans outside of MIN.

Quote :
Minnesota Vikings LB Desmond Bishop said part of the reason he chose to sign with the team was to play against his old team, and QB Aaron Rodgers in particular. "It was part of the reason," Bishop said. "And if I can get a chance to play against Aaron Rodgers, I think that right there, in itself, is a motivation. You know, you want to play against the best. ... When I was playing for Green Bay, the games I cherished ... most was playing against the Vikings because I had a chance to play against (running back) Adrian Peterson...That's my mindset. I want to play against the best."

I'm sure they offered him more money than the other teams too.

There are "no visible signs" of the torn hamstring that wiped out Desmond Bishop's 2012 season. Analysis: A week into camp, Bishop is showing burst on blitzes, moving well and hasn't missed a day of work. He's running behind Marvin Mitchell at weak-side linebacker for now, but won't have trouble winning that job or either of the other two linebacking spots if he sustains health.

I expect him to be a stud this season.
