Tyrell Sutton continues to prove he can play at this level. Every opportunity: kickoff returns, receiving, running the ball, he has exceeded expectations. He play from the heart. If the Packers are looking for a versatile back that "brings it" on every down, he should stick around!

Mathews return is good, but the real issue on the LB unit is who should play on the inside. Here's what it really comes down to; in three preseason games, here's the tackling totals for Green Bay's inside linebackers:

Desmond Bishop 16 tackles, 2 assists, 1 sack
Danny Lansanah 11 tackles, 2 assists
Brandon Chillar 7 tackles, 3 assists
A.J. Hawk 1 tackle, 2 assists

Complicating the issue is that they haven't all played the same amount of time or with the same units. However, the totals do suggest that Hawk may be having problems adjusting to the new system. With only one remaining preseason game, that is an area of concern.

Barnett's return throws another monkey wrench in the works.
