Good news. Three of the Green Bay Packers walking wounded practiced today.

After sitting out yesterday, both guard Josh Sitton and tight end Jermichael Finley returned to practice. Safety Morgan Burnett practiced for the second straight day.

Sitton has a back injury that bothered him during the San Francisco game. Finley hurt his toe early during that game, but still played virtually the entire game. His return to practice appears to be an encouraging sign. Coach Mike McCarthy said yesterday Finley wouldn’t practice until Friday, so it appears the injury isn’t as serious as initially thought.

Burnett, meanwhile, is battling a hamstring injury that cost him week one. It’s encouraging that he practiced for the second straight day, but he’s not out of the woods yet.

Burnett also practiced on Wednesday and Thursday last week before pulling up lame on Friday.

The only guy who’s already been scratched from this week’s game is cornerback Casey Hayward. He’s expected to miss two more weeks after this one.

  1. Two more weeks off for #29 should mean he only misses games through Week 3 vs. Cinn. Week 4 is a bye, so we’ll hopefully see him vs. Det. in Week 5. That’s a nice long rest to get those hammy fibers knitted back together.

    Heard somewhere that GB’s problem child went over to Minneshithole to get his toe looked at.

    Anyone giving odds that the resident head case winds up in purple next season?

    Finley, Sitton and Burnett are all listed as questionable on the injury report. That is typically translated as this- if you are unimportant, it is questionable that you will play. If you are important to the team, you are playing.

    Finley will definitely play. He will not let a toe keep him out of a game. He has a contract to earn.
