Johnson suffered a season-ending injury against the Bears on Monday night. Gbaja-Biamila played on some base downs as well as passing downs. The question with Gbaja-Biamila is whether or not he can be effective against the run.
"That's a concern for anybody that has that pure pass rushing ability," said Sherman. "And he does have that. You don't want to lose that. Whether Kabeer starts the game, or plays a certain amount of reps, we have to be sure that he is ready to give us everything he has on third down."
Gbaja-Biamila leads the Packers with 3 sacks. He returned an interception 72 yards for a touchdown on Monday night. He has forced one fumble and has knocked down two passes in four games played this season. The third-year pro has five total tackles.
