Offensive lineman T.J. Lang (ankle) was back at practice on Friday for the first time this week, but he appeared very limited in the work he was doing in the portion of practice open to the media.
That raises a couple of possibilities for the Packers with regard to Sunday night’s game against the Lions. Perhaps Lang will be given until Sunday night to get his ankle healed and he’ll be a game-time decision whether or not to start at right tackle instead of undrafted rookie Don Barclay. Or, Lang might be active for the game but only as a backup in an emergency should he be needed.
Mike McCarthy will be addressing the media after practice shortly.
Here’s a complete story following McCarthy’s press conference detailing the injury situation.
