T.J. Lang back at practice Friday, but very limited

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 7, 2012 – 12:06 pm

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.

    I think Barclay should start, T.J. should be the backup. Have T.J. ready to start against the Bears.

    Absolutely, Rusty. Bum ankles don’t get better if guys keep trying to push it before they’re ready. Have Lang suited up and available if needed only. Same goes for all the other guys working their way back from injuries. If GB can’t hammer these quacks with the same guys they used to beat Minnesota, they don’t belong in the playoffs anyway.
