Packers starting OLBs Clay Matthews and Nick Perry returned to the practice field on Wednesday on a limited basis, and Mike McCarthy is hopeful both can be back in the lineup this week.
Matthews has missed the last four games with a broken thumb but is trying to practice this week with a club cast on his hand. Perry has missed the last three games with a foot injury.
Wednesday’s practice was short and at a slower-than-normal pace, so Thursday’s workout will be a better indicator of where both players stand.
“I just spent a couple minutes with Clay,” McCarthy said. “It’s his first time wearing a club. There needs to be adjustments that’ll occur during the week. I’m curious to see him practice with it.”
Right guard T.J. Lang missed practice due to his concussion, but he hasn’t been ruled out for Sunday’s game. McCarthy described Lang as “confident” he could get medically cleared this week.
