Jermichael Finley and Josh Sitton Make Return to Packers Practice

Jermichael Finley and Josh Sitton Make Return to Packers Practice

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.

Hey Brian! Some say you would be ahead of the curve if you wrote an article on Chris Banjo getting a shot @ safety. Cuz, well, he was the best safety in our preseason games and he came back like Willis Reed after thay hip injury just to play in the second half of the 4th preseason game. That, alone, deserves a write-up; perhaps angling towards the toughness that our secondary needs.

Did Jolly return to the game after his injury on Sunday? If not, what's the word on him so far?

I thought it was just cramping - I'm pretty sure he returned.

He did return, but there wasn't any word as to what he suffered on that play. It looked as though to me like he might have tweaked his knee or bruised it, but it must not have been too serious.

Yeah he just had a bad case of being fat. He's still out of shape.

For the life of me thru the 70's,80's,90's I don't remember any of these tick tack injuries keeping players out,seems to me this players now are there worried about there contracts

Two things to that, in my opinion.

1. Higher paid players means teams want to protective their investments more.

2. With the Internet, we know if Rodgers stubs his toe within 45 minutes. Information overload.

I was thinking the same thing. Geez.
For me include the 60's as well. and of course it was totally different. It just never ends every week someone is out. That only happened if they couldn't wrap a knee or ankle any more and still play or be able to walk. I think they should start splitting the TE time anyway with Quarless and prepare for the inevitable, It will help the run game take pressure off Lacy, Here we go

I doubt Finley was injured in any way. He is obviously up there working on his contract for next year.

I know...that is just a foolish conspiracy theory. After all the Vikes would never tamper and they rarely go after ex Packers.

Jamie's picture just really typed that.

Makes no sense to do that.

It was a joke. I'll explain...

You see he went to Minnesota for his toe. Minnesota has a history of taking ex-Packers (or even son-to-be ex-Packers). See what I did there? I combined the two disparate facts into an implausible story.

Or is it???

It's a win win. You get a big contract and you can blame the qb
