#Packers practice: TE Ryan Taylor returns. Brad Jones full. Jones, Matthews, Perry and Finley still out.

The biggest news and perhaps the biggest disappointment coming out of Packers practice on Thursday was that wide receiver James Jones failed to take part.
Jones has been missing since first injuring his knee Week 6 at Baltimore. Head coach Mike McCarthy said last week that Jones' injury would keep him out two to three weeks. He's already missed two weeks. This would be the third.
Linebacker Nick Perry actually practiced last Friday before being withheld from last Sunday's game against the Vikings, so to not practice on Thursday also comes as a let-down. However, the Packers could just be erring on the side of caution and taking things slow with Perry.
The good news is that linebacker Brad Jones was a full participant in practice after being limited both Thursday and Friday last week. He would appear likely to return for the Bears game this Monday.
Tight end Ryan Taylor also returned to practice for the first time since undergoing minor knee surgery back on Oct. 16, making it perhaps likely that he could return for Monday Night Football as well.
Packers say WR James Jones was limited. McCarthy said he was part of the rehab program.
