B. J. Raji DL GB 2 Months

Raji underwent surgery on his biceps, which will be followed by a 6-to-9 month recovery process, Paul Imig of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.

Because the tendon required reattachment, Raji's injury was season-ending. Even if he takes the full nine months to rehabilitate, his status for training camp next summer shouldn't be a concern. However, with free agency on tap this coming offseason, it's anyone's guess as to where he'll reside in 2015.

Raji (biceps) was officially diagnosed with a torn biceps and will miss the entirety of the 2014 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

The Packers' worst fears were confirmed Saturday afternoon after tests revealed Raji suffered a fully torn biceps during Friday's preseason contest against the Raiders. He'll likely undergo surgery in the near future and begin a lengthy recovery process with the goal of returning in 2015. Green Bay could look to bring in a veteran to fill Raji's massive - both literally and figuratively - void on the defensive line.

Raji will have tests Saturday to determine if his injured right biceps is fully or partially torn, NFL.com reports.

Raji suffered the injury in Friday's exhibition game. He might be done for the season if the biceps is fully torn. Mike Pennel is the backup nose tackle, though defensive end Josh Boyd replaced Raji on Friday.

Raji left Friday's game with an arm injury and will not return, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

He was standing with the rest of the team on the sideline and didn't need to go to the locker room, so it's probably not that serious and the Packers are just erring on the side of caution.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed B.J. Raji will move back to nose tackle in 2014.

McCarthy said the Packers need to "cut [Raji] loose" and "get him over the center again." Raji has mostly played defensive end in Green Bay's 3-4 defense the past two seasons while Ryan Pickett manned the nose. Pickett won't be back. Raji will line up over center and should be flanked by Datone Jones and Mike Neal. Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews will rush the passer from the edges.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports there are "indications" free agent B.J. Raji will decline the Packers' one-year offer.

According to reporters Tom Silverstein and Bob McGinn, the Pack offered Raji the "options of one- and two-year contracts." They confirm the one-year offer was worth roughly $4 million. Coming off an extremely disappointing season, there's no guarantee Raji will do better in free agency.

Sources tell the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that the one-year deal the Packers have offered free agent B.J. Raji is worth $4 million.

During November of last season, Raji reportedly turned down a multi-year deal worth $8 million annually and contained $20 million guaranteed. He's kicking himself now. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Raji is mulling the Pack's latest "prove it" offer and would be moving back to nose tackle if he does re-sign.

Sources tell ESPN that the Packers are close to re-signing free agent DT B.J. Raji to a one-year contract.

It's telling that Raji is willing to accept a "prove it" deal from the Packers without even testing his value on the open market. He knows his value needs to be rehabbed. The five-year veteran's play has inconsistent at best and poor at worst recently, culminating with just 17 tackles and no sacks while getting destroyed against the run last season. As former Rams GM Billy Devaney recently said, Raji is "pretty much just a guy."
