The Packers return to practice on Wednesday after a day off on Tuesday in preparation for their game against the Detroit Lions this weekend. Following practice head coach Mike McCarthy will hold a press conference at 1:00 p.m. that will be streamed live on the team’s official website.
A couple transactions could come down the pike today. Everyone is waiting for official word on James Starks after it was reported last evening that the running back could be lost for the season with an injury.
At the very least, the Packers have two roster spots open on their practice squad after promoting Jeremy Ross and DuJuan Harris last week. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports the Packers will sign defensive back Chaz Powell to fill one void.
NFL policy also requires the Packers release an injury report beginning Wednesday and is usually announced immediately before McCarthy’s press conference.
The status of a couple players will be of interest, including offensive lineman T.J. Lang, who was injured during the Vikings game last week.
Packers guard Josh Sitton hosts his own namesake weekly radio program The Josh Sitton Show on Wednesday evening on 107.5 FM and 1400 AM “The Fan” WDUZ in Green Bay, which can be streamed live on the station’s website at 6:00 p.m. Central time. Defensive back Davon House will be the player guest, according to Sitton on Twitter.
The show is aired live from The Pine Tree Sports Bar & Grill at Thornberry Creek in Oneida, Wis.
