One day after three Packers starters missed the first day of practice in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, all three returned to work to action on Thursday.
Linebacker Desmond Bishop and offensive lineman T.J. Lang both missed Wednesday’s practice due to personal reasons. Bishop indicated his grandmother died via Twitter while Lang also was dealing with family issues of his own regarding his father, as he noted on the same social networking website.
Neither will be listed on the team’s injury report, according to a tweet from the Green Bay Packers.
Running back Ryan Grant also practiced today, reports Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Grant missed practice yesterday after he suffered a laceration to his knee, which required stitches. He is expected to play on Sunday.
The only players who missed practice today were offensive lineman Chad Clifton, who has already been ruled out of the Buccaneers game, and linebacker Frank Zombo.
