The Packers had their annual team photo taken on Wednesday after practice, and some of the players were up to their usual antics. The shoot was held inside Lambeau Field, and it’s always an adventure getting all the players to line up in order and settle down long enough for everything to turn out.

LB Clay Matthews did not return to the practice field on Wednesday, and Mike McCarthy labeled him as “doubtful” for this week. Matthews missed last week’s game in Detroit with a hamstring injury, and if Matthews can’t play this week, it would mark the first time in his four-year career that he will miss consecutive games.
In other injury news, CB Sam Shields (ankle) has already been ruled out, and McCarthy said it could be a couple more weeks yet for Shields, who will miss his fifth straight game this week.
“He’s not making the improvement we hoped,” McCarthy said. “It’s a little more serious injury than we anticipated.”
“It’s frustrating,” Shields said. “I’ve just got to keep my mind positive, keep getting in rehab and trying to get better to get back out on the field to get ready for the stretch down the road.”

WR Greg Jennings ran a few routes in the jog-through segment of practice and did some receiver drills during the portion of Wednesday’s workout open to reporters.
It’s the first time Jennings has been involved in practice since Week 4. He had surgery on an abdominal/groin muscle a few weeks ago and has only played in three games this season.
Also on the practice field on Wednesday were NT B.J. Raji, who limped off the field late during Sunday’s victory in Detroit with an ankle injury, and TE Andrew Quarless, who sat out two practices last week due to his knee.
Not practicing on Wednesday during the media portion were DB Charles Woodson (collarbone), CB Sam Shields (ankle), LB Clay Matthews (hamstring) and LB Vic So’oto, who was not on the injury report last week and played in the Detroit game.
Mike McCarthy will speak with reporters following practice at the top of the hour.
