After missing Thursday's practice with a groin injury, Green Bay Packers cornerback Micah Hyde said he'd be back in action on Friday for the team's final day of on-field preparations before this weekend's game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Micah Hyde says "I'll be back out there tomorrow."

Hyde is nursing a groin injury that's carried over from the Packers' last game against the Giants, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Without Hyde, Sam Shields, Casey Hayward and James Nixon at practice, the Packers were down to just three fully cornerbacks.
The Packers will be hoping to see more than just Hyde return in time for practice on Friday, with a slew of other injured players including but not limited to quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), linebacker Nick Perry (foot/ankle), defensive lineman Johnny Jolly (groin) and offensive lineman Don Barclay (knee).
Earlier in the week, Rodgers said on his weekly radio show that he'd have to practice at least two days before a game if there's a chance of him playing, so seeing if Rodgers practices Friday could be a barometer if he's ready to return.
In any case, McCarthy said Tolzien will start the Vikings game.
The Packers will release their daily injury report with game day status projections (probable, questionable, doubtful or out) on Friday, immediately preceding McCarthy's press conference, which will be streamed on the Packers official website at 12:30 p.m. CT.
Early Friday morning, McCarthy will make his rounds on statewide local radio as follows:
- WTMJ AM 620 Milwaukee at 6:25 a.m.
- WSAU AM/FM 550/99.9 Wausau/Stevens Point at 6:35 a.m.
- WIBA AM 1310 Madison at 6:45 a.m.
- WIXX 101.1 FM Green Bay at 7:50 a.m.
