When the Green Bay Packers released their Wednesday injury report, outside linebacker Clay Matthews has already been ruled out of this upcoming Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings but fellow outside linebacker Nick Perry had not.
Perry didn't practice on Wednesday, but the Packers wouldn't go as far as declaring he wouldn't play four days before the game.
That's encouraging news at a position where rookies Andy Mulumba and Nate Palmer started in place of Matthews and Perry and Mike Neal continues to deal with the effects of a shoulder injury.
Wide receiver James Jones and tight end Ryan Taylor are in the same boat as Perry. Neither practiced on Wednesday, but neither had been ruled out either.
