Injury Update at Packers Training Camp: Who's Returning? Who's Dropping Out?

Rookie safety Tanner Miller joined the ranks of the injured with an ankle issue.

One player returned to Green Bay Packers training camp practice on Thursday while one more player dropped out for a net gain of zero.

 

Returning to Practice

Outside linebacker Nick Perry, foot, knee

Perry practiced for the first time since being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list on the eve of training camp. While it would have beneficial to not miss the first four practices of the season, it shouldn't have a major impact on Perry's chances of making an impact this season. Assuming he has not setbacks, Perry should be ready to practice in pads in time for this weekend's Family Night event at Lambeau Field. The outside linebacker position in Green Bay has significantly more competition now that both Perry and Neal are back.

 

Dropping Out of Practice

Safety Tanner Miller, ankle

For the second consecutive day, the Packers had a safety pull out of practice, following Morgan Burnett on Wednesday. There was no word on the severity of Miller's injury other than to acknowledge it was to his ankle. The impact of losing two safeties has meant increased playing time for those that are healthy. Micah Hyde and first round draft pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix have reportedly been working with the starters, but guys like Sean Richardson, Chris Banjo and Charles Clay are getting increased opportunities.

 

Still Out (anticipated return in parentheses)

Safety Morgan Burnett (undetermined)

Defensive lineman Jerel Worthy, lower back (indefinitely)

Defensive lineman Letroy Guion, hamstring (indefinitely)

Wide receiver Jeff Janis, illness (day to day)

I'm really happy to see Perry back. He is a player that I think could be good if he could stay healthy. He started to come on last year until he got hurt.

The more the time goes on the more I think Worthy might be destined to the PUP list to start the season.

The longer Worthy sits on the sideline the more likely I think he is to get cut.

Staying on PUP means he won't have to be cut at the start of the regular season. He's still on relatively cheap rookie deal, so they'll keep him as insurance for late season injuries.

I know. I was being mostly sarcastic. At some point his time is running out. A 2nd round pick needs to produce and he's simply not cutting it. His time is running out.
