There was some good news and some extremly sobering news coming from the podium occupied by Mike McCarthy during his post-practice press conference earlier this afternoon.
First, McCarthy indicated that, despite being held out of practice today, and despite the possibility that he may not practice at all this week, Tramon Williams has a chance to play in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers.
Unfortunately this positive news was followed by some extremely bad news - defensive end Mike Neal had a surgery yesterday after his knee did not respond well to last week's practice time. McCarthy did not give any specifics but did say that Neal would miss a "significant" amount of time. Most will remember that the word "significant" was a buzz word last year when Packers were getting injured seemingly every week and eventually heading to injured reserve.
McCarthy did say he did not see Neal as a candidate for injured reserve.
