Packernews notebook discusses an injury to Korey Hall that could put him out for the remainder of the season. That would be a big loss. This guy has flown under the radar all season long after making the transition from linebacker in college to fullback in the NFL. He has been a strong factor in Grant’s success running the ball, so this is not good news. Back-up John Kuhn, fortunately, has stepped in nicely when he’s needed to, but as the article indicates, Hall has been valuable on both offense and special teams. And, while McCarthy and company say that not having a back-up FB won’t be a big deal because a tight end could step in, I don’t like that – I think there would be a significant drop-off in run game production if (God forbid) Kuhn went down and we didn’t have a FB back there blocking for Grant. Hopefully, nobody else will get hurt until Hall returns.
