One day after tight end Jermichael Finley and guard Josh Sitton were withheld from Green Bay Packers practice, the pair of starters on the offensive side of the football were reportedly back in action on Thursday.
Head coach Mike McCarthy even said Finley was unlikely to practice on Thursday, but he would appear to be ahead of schedule after a 49ers defender landed awkwardly on his foot this past Sunday.
Sitton has had back soreness dating back to before the 49ers game but fought through the pain during the game. Whether Sitton’s back impacted his play is another matter, because he had a poor showing with three penalties in the season opener.
Safety Morgan Burnett missed the Week 1 game, but practiced on Wednesday on a limited basis. There was no word on the extent of any of the players’ participation by reporters.
Mike McCarthy will give the media an update during his Thursday press conference in the afternoon, although it won’t be streamed live online.
