Mike McCarthy: Brandon Bostick's Injury Is Not Long-Term

The Packers tight end has been ruled out of Sunday's game, but McCarthy doesn't think the injury is long-term.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy met with the media on Friday for the final time before Sunday's game with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The following are select comments from the coach's press conference:

  • On injuries to his starting guards: Looks good. T.J. (Lang) and Josh (Sitton) had a good day ysetresday, going through rehab today. … As far as what they're going to do tomorrow, probably next to nothing. I want to make sure the younger player get the reps.
  • On winning the turnover battle: You talk about team identity, and one of our points of emphasis, obviously being a disciplined team. … We need to continue down this path of being smart, being decisive. … The combative penalties are 80, 90 percent have to do with hand placement.
  • On tight end Brandon Bostick's hip injury and being ruled out for Sunday's game: I think his work Tuesday will probably be the biggest indicator. It's not long term. It's not a major injury.
  • On the good health the Packers have had this season: Let's talk about that after the season, because I don't want to jinx it. But I think the numbers are good.
  • On the team's practice schedule: Every year is different. Your football team is different. My time here, we've probably been through three generations of practice schedules. … We made adjustments, which I thought were favorable. … Our new facilities have played a huge part, probably the biggest part in the change. We're able to do things now because of our facilities that we weren't able to do in the past.
