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.”
