Packers Calendar: On Halloween, Packers Hope for a Treat, Not Trick, in Comeback from WR Jones

Because of the game against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football this upcoming week, the Packers start their week of practice one day later than usual.

The team hits the practice field for the first time this week on Thursday and hope to be joined by wide receiver James Jones, who's been missing in action since injuring his knee Week 6 at Baltimore.

Linebackers Brad Jones and Nick Perry also haven't played in two weeks, but they at least practiced last week for the Packers. As long as they've suffered no setbacks, they figure to take part in today's session.

Whether they'll be joined by Jones is still up in the air. The Packers offense has done well in Jones' absence, but how long they can continue to do so is up for question.

The Packers will release their first official injury report of the week at approximately 1:10 p.m. CT, followed by a press conference from head coach Mike McCarthy to be streamed live on the team's official website at

Jones will make his weekly appearance on 101.1 FM WIXX in Green Bay for "1 on 1 with the Boys" from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. CT, when perhaps he'll give an update on his injury.

The show can be streamed live online at and through the station's USTREAM video player.

During the morning hours, McCarthy makes his weekly appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio (satellite radio) on Thursday at 10:15 a.m. CT.

He'll be talking to one of his former players and Packers preseason announcer Rich Gannon along with Bruce Murray on the SiriusXM Blitz.

Nick Perry's picture

I'd feel a whole lot better if Jones played in place of Myles White. Nelson, Boykin, and Jones would be alright. Besides, I see the Packers doing the same thing this week as last week. Lacy, Lacy, and then some Starks. The Bears are thin at DT and now Briggs is out as well. Packers could rush for over 200 yards this week. Hope the Packers get Perry back on field. Mike Neal has disappeared again. One decent game against Detroit is all he's had.

It'd be nice to see some injured guys back. The packers have been able to beat some crappy teams, but it's gonna get harder later. We can't keep pounding Lacy like that, he'll get hurt. Hopefully it's a more 50/50 split with Starks.
