The new NFL season hasn't even begun, and the Green Bay Packers from Wisconsin State have exceptional football sports players with injuries. The city of Milwaukee believes that the stadium decay is behind those injuries. Thus, they are planning to renovate the football field with artificial grass to prevent future injuries.

The first player that went down is a nose tackle B.J. Raji, who could not play for a year due to a torn biceps muscle. Fans believe that it will be hard on the team without having him there. In the second season, the player Josh Boyd will stand for Raji, although he has yet to get on the practice field because of injuries and it is a long way of contributing to the team's success. Another football player must be replaced with rookie Corey Linsley due to the injury, although his injury is not going to cause the season to end. Still, he will miss at least the first five games of the regular season. Down the road, they managed to overcome an injury that puts Aaron Rodgers on the bench last year for seven games, and they still won the final game, which should be able to match the final totals at least this season.
