No one has a wisdom tooth β€œemergent”. Seems like that should have been done week ago (unless company dental didn’t kick in until this week)

I had two taken out in an emergency because one got infected, literally, within a day or two. It was pretty awful.

Yeah, but I bet you showed up for the first day of training camp anyway.

I got a dry socket with mine. Hurt like a bitch. My Mom made me a Brandy Alexander though. That helped. 

Vs Geronimo Allison, this could be an interesting camp battle. I could never understand why MM couldn't find ANY role for Davis in that offense, especially in seasons where the Packers desperately needed speed at WR. 

What you want from King, purely in terms of health, is what happened with Mike Neal. Played a combined 14 games his 1st 2 seasons, then suddenly got healthy around 2012 and had 3 years playing 16 game seasons after.

 Neal did bone headed shit off the field, so NO, I am not talking about that. But he did shut up critics who said he'd never be healthy.

First practice? Out for the season.

Announcement just came across my iPad.......wow, surprise indeed.  Dang it.  He just started a school backpack give away to lots of school age kids in Green Bay, said it was going to be an annual thing for him and his wife to do.   I know it’s got nothing to do with how good of a player he is, but was a real nice jester on his part.  I always liked him........

Question regarding King is his ability to stay that way. He needs to break out of his Nick Perry career path and string together a healthy stretch.

Edit: Just read he's missed 17 games over his first two seasons. 

Yep he has missed that many games in his first two seasons.  I keep hoping this is the year the football injury gods finally give the Packers a break.

Dang, I wish we had thought of that when I had mine.  I had my wisdom teeth removal procedure done on a Friday and that dry socket lasted all weekend.  I could not wait to get back to that dentist office on Monday morning to get that fixed.  That was one of the most miserable weekends I ever had.  I remember taking tons of codeine but that barely dulled the constant pain. 

The sad thing was, the drugs they gave me during the tooth removal surgery were some of the best drugs I ever had.  I felt so good when I left the office.  But once that wore off a few hours later, that's when I knew I had the dry socket.  Like going from the penthouse to the outhouse.

Routes were of the "sapling" variety.
 
MM insisted on the whole GD tree
