Shields, Perry, Jolly, Barclay all probable for Thursday

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 27, 2013 – 12:52 pm

The Packers appear to be getting some of their injured players back for the Thanksgiving showdown with the Lions.

CB Sam Shields (hamstring), LB Nick Perry (foot/ankle), DE Johnny Jolly (groin) and OT Don Barclay (knee) — all of whom have missed at least the last two games, except Jolly, who sat out only last Sunday vs. Minnesota — are all listed as probable on the injury report for Thursday’s game following their participation on practices on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“As far as the amount of work we were able to get done the last two days on the field, it has been in a limited fashion as far as the workload,” Mike McCarthy said. “I’m encouraged. I trust they feel good and they’re ready to go. Hopefully nothing changes between now and tomorrow.”

The return of Shields is particularly timely, with the defense going up against the league’s most explosive receiver in Calvin Johnson, who missed the first meeting with the Packers back on Oct. 6 due to a knee injury.

McCarthy wasn’t going to reveal the game plan against Johnson, but it’s a safe bet Shields will get a fair share of time against him.

“I’m just happy to have Sam Shields back on the field,” McCarthy said. “Obviously he was playing very well for us. Calvin Johnson is obviously a dynamic player and he’s a real focus for us defensively.”

    That’s 4 of 22; almost 20% of starters returning., That’s four fresh bodies that’ll help out even more on a short week for the others.

    I am very serious when I say that if We loose the lions will not win the divison anyway. But since the Pack have some real players back We have a good chance of winning Thursday. The whole nation will be watching. Please God, Let everyone on the Team be prepared in everyway, Get a good nights sleep guys…..Good luck and please finish strong.

    Wow Breaking news you don’t need a team to win the Super Bowl. All you need is an elite Quarterback. No defense, No special team , No running backs and best of all no receivers .That’s right all you need is an “elite QB and you got yourself a ring.

    Currently I do not see the Packers in the Super Bowl. Then again I do not see the the Lions , Bears or Vikings playing in a Super Bowl this year. “BUT” if this team gets healthy well I feel their is a good chance to get in to the playoffs. After that any team can get hot and go all the way. So good luck Packers , get well and you never can tell.As for the other teams in the North Div. I see them as one and done.

    “I am very serious when I say that if We [we] loose [lose] the lions [Lions] will not win the divison [division] anyway.”

    Wow, you figured that out all by yourself, Kevin?

    Rusty, I wouldn’t have picked five of the last seven Super Bowl winners to get past the divisional round of the playoffs, so I quit looking at what I see at the end of November and deciding I can see what that means for January.

    I agree, Rick S. Baltimore and the Giants winning the SB – nobody would have guessed (predicted) that in the month of November, but I sure like Seattle’s chances this year! I’ll probably be wrong again (and I hope so – can’t stand Carrol)
