Injury Update at Packers Training Camp: Who's Returning? Who's Dropping Out?

Injury Update at Packers Training Camp: Who's Returning? Who's Dropping Out?

It appears a day off on Tuesday was beneficial to a couple Packers players, allowing them to return to practice on Wednesday.

 

Returning to Practice

Outside linebacker Mike Neal, abdomen

Neal practiced for the first time since being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list on the eve of training camp with the same abdominal core problem he fought through last season. As required by the NFL, Neal reportedly only wore shells while the rest of the team practiced in pads. As long as he suffers no setbacks, Neal should be back in pads in time for Saturday's annual Family Night event.

Linebacker Jamari Lattimore, illness

After missing the previous two practices with a stomach illness, Lattimore was back out on Ray Nitschke Field on Wednesday. As a four-year veteran, a couple of missed practice shouldn't have hurt Lattimore's standing on the team much, if at all, especially since it was just an illness and not injury that kept him out.

 

Dropping Out of Practice

Safety Morgan Burnett, ankle

Burnett began the day by taking part in practice but eventually dropped out with what head Mike McCarthy described as a "tweak." Coming days will determine the severity of Burnett's injury, but more notable for the time being is what happend at the safety position after Burnett went out. Hyde and Clinton-Dix were reportedly paired as the first-string tandem with Sean Richardson entering the mix when the Packers went to their dime defensive package with Hyde dropping down to the slot cornerback position.

 

Limited

T.J. Lang, shoulder

Lang would still appear to be taking part in practice on a limited basis, although it seems like he's becoming more involved with each passing day. On the first day of practice, Lang did little more than stretch and watch. On days two and three, he took part mostly in individual drills. As of Wednesday, Lang was rotating in and out of team periods, in addition to invidual drills. He may be back to full-time status soon.

 

Still Out (anticipated return in parentheses)

Outside linebacker Nick Perry, foot, knee (day to day)

Defensive lineman Jerel Worthy, lower back (indefinitely)

Defensive lineman Letroy Guion, hamstring (indefinitely)

Wide receiver Jeff Janis, illness (day to day)

Damn - there goes Burnett.
Everyone knows a sprained ankle = lost season... just ask the Datone Jones supporters.

Its one thing for a rookie that needs all the reps he can get and quite another thing for a vet who knows the D and has 4 yrs experience. Not to mention that a bum wheel on a 290 lb DL having to take on 320lb OL as opposed to a 200 lb Safety who isn't taking on blocker, but making tackles.

But hey... Don't let that stop you from making yourself look like a Tool!!

To me its not the injuries its the guys who keep having the same injuries over and over and never seem to heal. Just a dam good time to send Worthy packing. Flash ! Nice time to send Worthy packing. Never goona get any work out of him, just chalk it up to another TT oppppps.

Stroh's picture

FYI... Worthy has had an ACL and now a back. Not nearly the same over and over again is it?!

But like I said w/ CowShit... Don't let that stop you from looking like a tool.

Does it look likexthe stage has become too big for Janis?

Stroh's picture

The stage is too big isn't why he has an illness! But I do think he needs a year on the PS, just like Abbrederis.

Mojo's picture

Can the Pack put Janis on the IR from a head-cold?

Just trying to think outside the box.

Good to see Mike Neal return. I hope he can stay on the field.
