No setbacks so far for Morgan Burnett

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 12, 2013 – 4:52 pm

Packers S Morgan Burnett practiced for the second straight day on Thursday in a limited fashion without any setbacks to his hamstring injury, which kept him out of last week’s opener in San Francisco.

Also, G Josh Sitton (back) and TE Jermichael Finley (toe) returned to practice on a limited basis after sitting out Wednesday’s workout. Thursday’s practice was in pads.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy said Burnett was able to do more in practice on Thursday than initially expected, but after Burnett suddenly was held out of practice last Friday and had to miss the game, caution is certainly being exercised.

“It’s better than last week,” Burnett said. “It’s improving, it’s getting there. We’re going to see how I feel tomorrow.

“I want to be out there so bad. I’m anxious to get out there and get the season started. But the trainers and guys there, they’re doing their job, so that’s why we have to play it by ear.”

McCarthy said the situations for Sitton and Finley are similar. If their medical exams go well Friday morning and they can practice again, their chances of playing will look even better.

CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) has been ruled out for the second straight week, and CB Jarrett Bush pulled up in practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury and was added to the injury report. Bush was on the report last week with an ankle injury but still played.

LB Nick Perry (neck) was downgraded to a limited participant in practice after going full on Wednesday, when practice was not in pads. McCarthy said Perry’s stinger “flared up” after Wednesday’s practice and his evaluation was ongoing.
