Walden returns to practice Thurs., Kuhn sits out

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 20, 2012 – 12:00 pm

LB Erik Walden (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s workout, but FB John Kuhn was added to the absence list.

Kuhn was not on the injury report on Wednesday, so an update from Mike McCarthy will be coming after practice.

Otherwise, the participation at practice on Thursday was essentially unchanged from Wednesday.

Post-practice update: Kuhn’s absence was “not injury related,” according to McCarthy, while OL Greg Van Roten was added to the injury report with a back injury. He was limited in practice, but the injury isn’t something the medical staff is overly concerned about.

With Van Roten, T.J. Lang (concussion, illness) and Jeff Saturday (neck/shoulder) all dealing with issues, the offensive line was a little shorthanded at practice, but McCarthy didn’t sound worried. He said Saturday could potentially return to practice on Friday, and he anticipates Lang being cleared by Sunday. Lang hasn’t passed the concussion protocol yet, but he wasn’t able to proceed with any testing on Thursday because he had the flu.

    I’m still a fan of Kuhn, but I just don’t like when they have running plays for him…I’m good with Rodgers throwing him the ball though

    Kuhn is good on those short yardage runs and I agree, coming out the back when protection duties are not needed, he’s ok in space with the ball. I’m missing the screens the Pack was known for.

    Kuhn is not the prototypical 3rd down back where he seems to be planted

    I would love to see newcomer Dejuan Harris get some screen action

    Kuhn is a selfless player that can block like a beast and can be dangerous catching out of the backfield, but he is not the 1-2 yard beast we need. Hope this is nothing serious.
