The Packers’ injury list is rather long this week, and as a result Mike McCarthy cut practice short on Wednesday and plans to do so again on Thursday.
New to the injury report this week are WR Donald Driver (neck), FB John Kuhn (hamstring), G T.J. Lang (elbow/wrist), WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) and C Jeff Saturday (neck). Driver and Kuhn sat out practice while the other three were limited. McCarthy said he didn’t know if any of these players were in danger of missing Sunday’s game, but he didn’t indicate any of the injuries was serious. Driver and Saturday both spoke to groups of reporters at their lockers and said they’ll be fine.
Also missing practice were WR Greg Jennings (groin), LB Nick Perry (knee), NT B.J. Raji (ankle) and CB Sam Shields (ankle). Jennings is in the process of getting a second opinion on his injury, which has forced him to miss the last three games. Raji is scheduled to do rehab work and perhaps practice on a limited basis on Thursday. McCarthy said Perry and Shields are not ready to test their injuries on Thursday and will be re-evaluated Friday, an indication they’ll both miss another game.
TE Jermichael Finley (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice, but he has played the last two weeks while listed on the injury report. QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) was a full participant in practice.
