Two weeks into the NFL season, there's a very obvious difference between the Dom Capers led Green Bay Packers defenses of the past and the current reincarnation. In 1992, Capers received his first job as a defensive coordinator in the NFL.

Packers: Ineffective, or injured

If the Green Bay Packers want to make a change at inside linebacker - and to be clear, no one has said that they actually do - then Brad Jones' recurring quadriceps injury just might give coach Mike McCarthy the cover to do so without officially benching the struggling veteran. Jones sat out Wednesday's practice with a quadriceps injury that dates back to training camp, when he missed the final week of practice and sat out the preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs on Aug. 28. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Jones would not practice on Thursday, either.

Packers Inside Linebackers: Could Green Bay be Interested in Arthur Brown?

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports that multiple teams have called the Ravens about inside linebacker Arthur Brown. Could the Packers be one of them? Of the Packers ' many shortcomings in their 36-16 season-opening loss to the Seahawks , the inability of their inside linebackers to get to the ball and cover the tight end stood out more than most.
