Raji practicing Thursday; Nelson, Starks not

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 25, 2012 – 12:12 pm

NT B.J. Raji (ankle) was practicing on Thursday during the portion of the workout open to the media. The practice was in full pads. Raji has missed the last two games due to injury.

WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) and RB James Starks, however, were not. Mike McCarthy said on Wednesday that Nelson’s hamstring tightened up on him during practice. Starks is not listed on the injury report, so there won’t be any information until McCarthy’s post-practice update.

Also, WR Donald Driver (neck) returned to practice after sitting out on Wednesday.

Update: After practice, McCarthy said Starks missed the workout due to an illness. Nelson will not practice on Friday, either, and he will test his hamstring either Saturday or Sunday to0 see if he can play. Raji “looked good,” and “looked like his old self,” according to McCarthy, who listed Raji as a limited participant in practice.

Driver was a full participant in practice, while FB John Kuhn (hamstring) sat out for the second straight day.

    Before this season (and playoffs) are done… Donald Driver will have his big opportunity to shine and once more help lead the way to victory !

    What’s going on with all of these hamstring and groin injuries? Do we commit enough time to conditioning and warm ups, or, are we pushing too hard, too fast into game speed? We’ll be fine at WR with great depth there . We need to be sure our LBs and DBs can cover, and with Desmond, DJ and now Charles out, that’s a growing concern. Our guys will step up, as we saw in 2010, but let’s get to the root cause on these hamstrings.
