GREEN BAY, WIS. (AP) - The injuries keep piling up the Green Bay Packers.

Coach Mike McCarthy says veteran linebacker Brady Poppinga and rookie defensive lineman Mike Neal both are expected to have season-ending surgery. Poppinga has a knee injury and will get a second opinion, but is not expected to return this season. Neal has a shoulder injury.

The Packers already have seven players on injured reserve, including four starters: tight end Jermichael Finley, linebacker Nick Barnett, running back Ryan Grant and safety Morgan Burnett.
