140818-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY–Coach Mike McCarthy delivered good news at his post-practice press conference on Monday. Tight end Brandon Bostick’s lower leg injury is not season ending.

“He’s going to be a couple of weeks,” McCarthy said, adding that surgery is not necessary.

McCarthy defended the play of tackle Derek Sherrod.

“We have two more weeks to get ready. Derek Sherrod did a lot of good things. He had a couple of plays he’d like to have back. We’re progressing nicely there,” McCarthy said.

The Packers are in Week 3 of the preseason, which is traditionally a game in which starters play the longest and teams game plan as they would in a regular-season week.

“I don’t think it’s as big an emphasis for us this year because of how early we went to an in-season schedule,” McCarthy said.

The Packers head coach said Monday’s practice “was our best tempo of the year.”

Rookie Jayrone Elliott registered three sacks in Saturday’s game in St. Louis.

“Young man that’s taken advantage of every opportunity he’s been given,” McCarthy said.
