Pickett returns to practice Thursday

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 29, 2012 – 12:32 pm

As Mike McCarthy suspected, DL Ryan Pickett was back on the practice field on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday with a quad injury. Both McCarthy and Pickett expressed confidence that Pickett would play on Sunday, and he appears on track to doing so.

Still no LB Clay Matthews, however, whose hamstring injury is going to be re-evaluated on Friday. No C.J. Wilson (knee) on the defensive line, either.

Also, WR Donald Driver (thumb) and TE Andrew Quarless (knee) did not practice on Thursday for a workout that did not include pads. The Packers have been practicing in pads most Thursdays this season, but the new CBA rules allow for only 14 padded practices during the regular season, so a couple of weeks here and there have to be without pads entirely. This would be one of those weeks.

    As it goes in football injury is part of the game. Thank goodness that T.T. is as good as it gets with his draft and F.A. pick ups . Still this has been one hell of a year for injuries and the next man up is not the same as the guy he must replace. Everyone on the team is doing a heck of a job and the Pack are in control of their own destiny . As player’s get healthy it should make it better to make a run, so long as they get healthy and stay healthy. They should end up in the drivers seat.

    Good to see Pickett back for this game. Peterson is a terror and Pickett’s presence in the middle will help force the Vikings to take it outside more with AP, and anything you can do to make his options more predictable is good.

    Guys, you got to play with a sore thumb or leg once in a while… I wish my boss would say, take 3 or 4 weeks off with pay because I hurt my big toe!!!! There is to many guys that just don’t want to play football…

    Uh, no corncob. I’m pretty sure they want to practice and play but the docs make that decision, and tend to err on the side of caution. In any case, it’s not gonna make a difference if Driver misses a couple practices. Let the old man rest up so he’s fresh for game day.

    Did Nitschke have a Fathead Room? Doubt it.
    I know he played with pain and hardly ever missed a game.
    Clay Matthews, come on man! Your team needs you right now.
    Go Pack Go!!

    What I still don’t get is some rules within the new CBA. Football is a contact sport and everybody is wondering why they do miss so many tackles and so many O-lines can’t protect the QB.
    That doesn’t surprise me at all if you’re only allowed to practice with full pads 14 times a season!
    I know they wanna reduce injuries, but at the same time the more they practice the better prepared!

    Just some thoughts from a guy far away in Germany.

    But anywas. Go Pack Go! Can’t wait for Sunday!

    C’mom Brett, you can not rush a hamstring injury. Hurt it again, and he could be out the rest of the season!
