Nick Perry Had Wrist Surgery, Could Be Gone For Season

Nick Perry hit on Andrew Luck

A lot of people have been comparing this Green Bay Packers squad with the 2010 squad that started slow and went on to win the Super Bowl. Well, they’re becoming more like that team in another way — their injury list is expanding about as quickly as Mike McCarthy‘s waistline.

Outside linebacker Nick Perry, who’s been out three games with a knee injury, had surgery on his wrist this week. That surgery could reportedly end his season.

Perry first hurt the wrist in week one, but he kept playing… until the knee injury. The wrist injury was lingering and Perry got a second opinion this week before going ahead with surgery.

It looks like the Packers will be forced to stick with Erik Walden as a starter at outside linebacker, at least for the foreseeable future. Dezman Moses and the Frank Zombo, who was activated from the PUP last week, will also have increased roles. When the Packers return from their bye, those roles will probably be dramatically increased.

That’s because Clay Matthews may not be back from the hamstring injury he suffered against Arizona.

In 2010, the Packers put 14 guys on injured reserve. So far this season, they’ve put five guys on IR, but Perry and injured tackle Derek Sherrod could add to that list soon.

    Our worst injuries to date valued by importance:
    1.) Desmond Bishop…on IR (done for season)
    2.) D.J. Smith…on IR also a MLB
    3.) Clay Matthews…he can’t afford to miss a game
    4.) Bryan Bulaga…(same reason as # 3) We are very thin in depth in th OL
    5.) Cedric Benson…he will be back @ week 13 but we will need a RB down the strech when the weather turns
    6.) Charles Woodson…he will be back, got hurt at the rite time & we are deep in talent in the secondary
    7.) Greg Jennings…we have proven we can plug anyone into the WR position & be successful
    8.) Jordy Nelson…(see #7) & Jennings & Nelson will both be back soon

    Zombo maybe picks up some of the slack for Perry. Good timing coming back. He can rush the passer……..not CM3 by a long shot, but who else do we have?

      Moses has looked pretty decent, but he is young and makes some mistakes, other than that, no one really.

    Nick Perry was just placed on the IR. That means the Packers now have 6 guys there. This made room for Andrew Quarless to join the active roster. It would probably be hoping for a lot to expect Quarless to make much of a contribution this year, but it is still nice to have him back.

    The Packers still have Lattimore if we need him and Frank Zombo, whose PUP release is now VERY timely.

    Who would have believed that Lattimore, Moses and Brad Jones would all end up getting this much playing time? That’s why your depth better be good.

    Ironically, the last time the Packers played the Lions, Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews didn’t play. Let’s hope the defense does a little better this time.
