Description: Vikings backup LB Desmond Bishop has a torn ACL and is done for the season, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today Sports.
Insight: Minnesota's defense is already averaged 418 ypg, so losing linebacker depth won't help.

Insight: Here is what our IDP guru Mike Woellert had to say about Bishop: The Packers are getting a young, solid ILB on the cheap, as he was going to be a free agent this offseason. He had a huge 2010 once he became an every-down backer, filling in for Nick Barnett. He averaged close to nine tackles per game and contributed some big plays, including three sacks. The extension for Bishop means that AJ Hawk, more than likely, will not be returning to Green Bay.

Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Packers have signed Bishop to a four-year, $19 million contract extension.
Insight: Bishop capably replaced Nick Barnett after Barnett was lost for the season in Week 5. This may leave A.J. Hawk as the odd man out in the Packers' LB corp this offseason. (RapidDraft.com)
