Well, surprise, surprise. Outside linebacker Nick Perry broke his foot two weeks ago, but he may be ready for the Green Bay Packers Sunday night game with the Minnesota Vikings.
Perry practiced on a limited basis for the first time since the injury, on Friday. He’s officially listed as questionable on the injury report, which means 50/50.
“Nick Perry did okay. He was a limited role today,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “We’ll see how he feels. Hopefully, he’ll be ready for Sunday night.”
Without Perry, the Packers had just three active outside linebacker against Cleveland last week — Mike Neal and rookies Andy Mulumba and Nate Palmer. Neal was banged up going into that game, but wasn’t on the injury report this week.
The Packers had only three guys on the injury report listed as out this week — Clay Matthews, Ryan Taylor and Jermichael Finley. James Starks, Jarrett Bush and Casey Hayward are probable and will play.
Inside linebacker Brad Jones is questionable, but with the way Jamari Lattimore has played, the Packers could probably hold him out. Receiver James Jones is doubtful and reports are that he won’t play.
