Packers LB Desmond Bishop hoping he heals soon


Desmond Bishop got his starting job when the veteran in front of him went down with an injury. Now, the Green Bay Packers veteran inside linebacker is hoping he won't suffer the same fate.

Bishop missed all last season with a ruptured hamstring tendon suffered in the Aug. 9 preseason opener. And after the Packers signed his replacement, Brad Jones, to a three-year, $11.75 million free-agent contract during the offseason, Bishop acknowledged that nearly every player is trade bait.

For now, there's not much Bishop can do beyond watching. He's yet to be cleared by the team's medical staff.
