The Packers already banged up defense loses yet another player. ESPN’s Adam Caplan reports that linebacker Blake Martinez will likley miss several weeks with the knee injury he suffered during Sunday’s loss vs the Redskins.

Martinez has had a good year so far in his rookie season. Martinez has recorded 63 tackles in 10 games. With Jake Ryan (ankle) banged up and now Martinez out, the Packers will rely on Joe Thomas, who has 21 tackles in 10 games, to be the starting middle linebacker.
