Matthews, Lang, Neal back at practice on Wednesday, but Woodson, Nelson, House not

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 12, 2012 – 12:30 pm

LB Clay Matthews returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since injuring his hamstring on Nov. 4 vs. Arizona. Matthews has missed the last four games, but it appears he could return to game action this Sunday in Chicago.

Also, OL T.J. Lang (ankle) and DL Mike Neal (shoulder) also returned to practice after missing last week’s games.

On the flip side, DB Charles Woodson was not at practice despite having practiced off and on the past couple of weeks. Woodson hasn’t played in a game since breaking his collarbone in Week 7 in St. Louis and it was thought he might return to action this week. Mike McCarthy should provide an update when he speaks with the media following practice at the top of the hour.

Another defensive back, CB Davon House, was sitting out practice as well. House has not been on the team’s injury report since recovering from his preseason shoulder injury.

WR Jordy Nelson also was not at practice. Nelson missed last week’s game with a hamstring injury, his second such injury this season.

On another note, several of the offensive linemen and tight ends began practice with a little prank for their quarterback. Today is “Aaron Rodgers Day” in honor of the numerical date (12-12-12) and several of Rodgers’ offensive mates were wearing No. 12 Rodgers jerseys at the start of practice. Shortly into the workout, all had changed back to their regular jerseys, but for some of the initial jog-through snaps early in practice, as many as a half-dozen players running an offensive play had a No. 12 jersey on.
