It was a non-contact injury. Though he staggered back to the Packers’ bench under his own power, and was later seen standing…

Paid to honor

“You go to a game and you see a team honoring ‘Hometown Heroes,’ and you think it’s some sort of public service announcement,” Flake told ESPN, “that the team is doing it out of the goodness of their heart. Then you find out it’s paid for? That seems a little unseemly.” Via Report: Packers, 13…
