151015-nn1-650GREEN BAY — The Packers have suffered injuries on defense, particularly at the safety position, but the defense is ranked No. 7 overall and the pass defense is No. 4 and on the rise.

“The secondary is playing very well. I think Ha Ha has stepped up big,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said.

Sean Richardson (neck) was placed on injured reserve earlier this week and fellow safety Morgan Burnett (calf) has missed four of the team’s five games.

“You don’t have enough Sean Richardsons on your football team. There’s a lot of love for him in this building,” McCarthy said. “(WR) Davante (Adams) and Morgan are on schedule to try to do more today.”

Linebacker Nick Perry (shoulder) and nose tackle B.J. Raji (groin) were injured in last Sunday’s win over the Rams.

“The report this morning is (Perry’s) advancing through the process better than expected, and so is B.J.,” McCarthy said. “We have a lot of good players. Our defense is playing with the right attitude. It’s fun to hear the interaction of the defense.”
