Packers Travel to San Francisco

The Green Bay Packers head to San Francisco today as they get ready for Saturday night’s NFC Divisional playoff game against the 49ers.  Everyone but Jerel Worthy and Jarrett Boykin practiced on Thursday.  The flu bug is going through the Packers locker room.  Randall Cobb has been dealing with the flu this week.  Aaron Rodgers told reporters that he’s not 100% but will be ready to go on Saturday night.  Pregame coverage begins at 5pm. The kickoff is set for 7pm on KFIZ.


49ers Keep Kicker

The 49ers have kicking problem much like the Packers,  David Akers has struggled all season and the team brought in Billy Cundiff to compete for the job this week.  When it was all said and done, Niners head coach Jim Harbaugh decided to stick with Akers. 


Coaching Comings and Going

The Cleveland Browns have hired Carolina offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski as their new head coach.  Jacksonville has fired head coach Mike Malarkey.


Narveson Gets Deal

The Brewers avoided arbitration with lefty Chris Narveson agreeing to a one-year, $840,000 contract.  He was 1-1 last year before having season ending rotator cuff surgery.  John Axford, Burke Badenhop, Marco Estrada, and Carlos Gomez are the only Brewers still eligible for arbitration.
