The Green Bay Packers have placed Bishop on injured reserve, ending his season.||||||| Bishop tore his right hamstring in the team's first preseason game at San Diego.

Bishop didn't get to join his teammates at the White House because he forgot his ID on the team plane. Bishop was sure he had his wallet when he got on a team bus from the airport to the White House last Friday, as the Packers prepared to finally make their lockout-delayed visit. When security began checking IDs, Bishop suddenly realized he didn't have his.||||||| Bishop says White House security wasn't willing to make an exception to let him in without identification, so he had to stay on the team bus. Bishop said he called his family, updated his Twitter account and took a nap while his teammates met President Barack Obama.

Bishop says the Packers began preparing for Ben Roethlisberger by watching video of how other teams failed to bring down the Steelers' big quarterback. The Packers could've been featured, too, in defensive coordinator Dom Capers' highlight package as they work toward Super Bowl on Feb. 6.||||||| Bishop says the video review was meant to remind them that there are no easy ways to bring a 6-foot-5, 241-pound person to the ground. Cornerback Charles Woodson says Roethlisberger is elusive enough to avoid a blitz and too big to trip up with just an arm tackle.
