Josh Sitton, Jermichael Finley miss practice on Wednesday

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 11, 2013 – 4:54 pm

LG Josh Sitton (back) and TE Jermichael Finley (toe) both missed practice on Wednesday, leaving their status for Sunday’s game against Washington in doubt. Also, S Morgan Burnett (hamstring) returned to practice on a limited basis, but Head Coach Mike McCarthy said it would take the entire week to determine whether or not Burnett can play.

Sitton had his back flare up on him during the long flight to San Francisco, but he played the whole game. The long flight back didn’t help matters, though.

“It’s feeling better than it did Monday and Tuesday, but I don’t know, we’ll see,” Sitton said. “We’ll be able to gauge it more as the week goes on.

“It’s one of those things that comes and goes, and hopefully it’ll go away before Sunday.”

Sitton had a rough second quarter in San Francisco, getting called for three penalties — two holding and one illegal hands to the face — while trying to block All-Pro Justin Smith. Long story short, Sitton wasn’t crazy about the calls.

“You can’t really do anything about the officials,” he said. “I don’t necessarily agree with a couple of the calls, but you can’t do anything about it. Screaming and complaining about it isn’t going to get you anywhere. Old ‘94’ (Smith) out there is a pretty good actor. He likes to throw his hands up in the air a lot, pretend like he’s getting held. Nothing you can do about that.”

If Sitton is unable to play on Sunday, McCarthy said that Marshall Newhouse would be the next lineman in. Newhouse started primarily at tackle the past two years, so one possible lineup would put Newhouse at right tackle and move Don Barclay to Sitton’s left guard spot. Newhouse also could play guard, though he hasn’t done so in a regular-season game in his career.

“Things are kind of open,” Newhouse said. “We’ll be flipping a lot and taking a lot of reps and things are still up in the air as far as that’s concerned. I know the offense well.

“There shouldn’t be any dropoff. I’ve always prepared mentally like I’m a starter, and in 2011 when my number was called, I was ready.”

Finley will be “hard pressed” to practice on Thursday, according to McCarthy, but any decision on his game status would wait until at least Friday.

“I’ve got the mentality that I want to play,” said Finley, acknowledging that the best medicine for his sore toe is rest. “I don’t have it in my mind that I want to sit down Sunday. We have four days until Sunday, so if it’s up to me, I’m going to be out there.”

    88 has the mentality to play ??? No Wonder GB was concerned about paying him. I was in a cab with 66 on the way to County stadium to watch a game. Cabbie argued with Ray about what exit to take. I though Nitchke was going to rip out the seat and take the wheel from the guy. You always have the MENTALITY !!! Not fair comparing him to Ray on or off the field, But had to make the point. GO PACK !

    Sitton on the other hand, I want him on my side! GO PACK!

    Not good. I see Sitton as the lynch pin that holds this shaky offensive line together. Without him it will be a rough Sunday for Rodgers.

    That’s why the Pack is trying out FA o-lineman.

    Packers seem to get more than there fair share of injuries and that has been the case for several years. I wonder how solid the strength and conditioning program is with the Packers.

    Finley better be out there, he’s a much bigger part of the offence this season and he needs to deliver and be able to be depended on.

    No one has mentioned the fact that we got out-coached against san fran. They new we’ed be watching Kapernick for the play action run , so they blew up the secondary all day.

    The Pack needs Sitton healthy this year if they’re going to contend for the Lombardi trophy. I say let him sit if his back isn’t right. Get him healthy for the long haul!
