Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Jerel Worthy spoke about his injury back injury for the first time on Wednesday.
According to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
The third-year defensive end has missed all of training camp, and OTAs/minicamp before that, after "a couple little things got out of place in my lower spine" while weightlifting.
Without elaborating, Worthy added that he did have a surgical procedure done before the Packers' first May OTA.
Worthy said he could be back as early as Thursday or at some point next week, but that it was ultimately up to general manager Ted Thompson. The Michigan State product was placed on the team's Non-Football Injury (NFI) on the eve of training camp.
