Packers Calendar: How Close Is Close for Tramon Williams?

Observers will be watching whether the Packers cornerback will practice on Thursday in Green Bay.

The Green Bay Packers were without both of their starting cornerbacks at practice on Wednesday, the two of them nursing injuries sustained during the Week 6 game against the Miami Dolphins this past Sunday.

Head coach Mike McCarthy has already said that the injuries to Sam Shields (knee) and Tramon Williams (ankle) don't appear to be "long term," but there's concern whether they'll be available for the game this upcoming weekend against the Carolina Panthers.

"I think Tramon is closer (to returning) than Sam," said McCarthy.

As the Packers hit the practice field once again on Thursday, it will be worth watching whether Williams is able to return to action, even if it is in a limited capacity.

The Packers will release an injury report following practice and Williams will be listed as either did not practice, limited or full.

McCarthy will also meet with the media after practice on Thursday and will perhaps have an update on the status of his cornerbacks. His press conference will take place at approximately 2:00 p.m. CT and be streamed live at Packers.com.

During the morning hours, McCarthy will also have his regular Thursday interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio at 10:30 a.m.

Then during the evening, safety Micah Hyde will host 1 on 1 with the Boys on 101.1 FM WIXX in Green Bay at 6:00 p.m. 

Hyde will be joined by a player guest, and the show will be streamed online with audio at WIXX.com and video on the station's Ustream channel.

I don't think they need to rush either of them back. The Panthers don't have a talented receiving corps, and the healthy corners are more than good enough to handle the job. Going to need Shields and Williams at closer to full strength vs. New Orleans.

I agree with this, especially if Benjamin is out. That leaves Olsen as the Panther's only major receiving threat, unless Cam is going to start tossing them to himself.

Can Clay spy Cam the whole game? I'd rather that the D get gashed by their RBs than Cam running free.

They still haven't solved the problem of the read option/mobile QB. This game would be an opportunity to try something different. Better now than in January vs. the Seahawks or 49ers.
