Perry Undergoes Surgery, Expected to Go on IR

Perry Undergoes Surgery, Expected to Go on IR

The Green Bay Packers were dealt another significant injury blow on Election Day Tuesday.

Rookie linebacker Nick Perry, who has missed the last three games with an LCL injury, underwent surgery on a lingering wrist issue and is expected to be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Lance Allan of TMJ4 in Green Bay first reported the news late Tuesday night.

Perry, the No. 28 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft, hurt his wrist in the Packers' season-opening loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The Packers limited his snaps in the weeks following, giving Erik Walden a more significant role opposite Clay Matthews.

Perry then hurt his LCL in a scary-looking incident in Houston and hasn't played since.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday Perry would be getting a second opinion but didn't specify whether it was on the wrist or knee. It would was widely assumed the second look would be on the recovering knee.

If placed on season-ending IR, Perry would join fellow linebackers Desmond Bishop and D.J. Smith. Defensive lineman Johnny Jones and running back Brandon Saine are also on IR.

Walden (26 tackles, sack, interception) would continue starting in his place at left outside linebacker.

Perry is a pussy, wear a club and play football. Ronny Lott is disappointed

Ask Von Miller about playing OLB with a bum wrist/cast. He was a shell of himself.

Also, he's only "expected" to go on IR. If his injury/surgery is similar to that of Mario Williams, he could be back after the bye. Don't sell out hope until he's actually on IR!

Well, that blows.

Sherrod now on practice field?

If he goes on IR, is he banned from practicing? I'd sure like him to work on his pass coverage technique with a bum arm after his knee heals.

Mike's picture

Unfortunately, yes. He would be able to attend meetings, meet with the trainers for rehab and use the fitness/strength facilities. I believe he could attend practices, but not participate.

Sucks to lose him from a development perspective, but Walden's been playing his ass off lately.

Perry would've been a huge upgrade over Walden by seasons end. Walden doesn't get push, plain and simple.

Guys, the injury situation is not near as bad as it was in 2010 and we know how that ended. Read the article on Packers plus.

If Matthews misses DET and NYG, this is every bit as bad as 2010.

So you're already calling a SB win? That's BOLD!!

Welp that sucks. At least there is room for Quarless now.

It's crazy how bad the injuries are stacking up. It's been a steady trickle of additions to the injury report every week. That's the difference between this year and 2010. In 2010, there were early injuries to guys like Grant, Barnett, and Finley, but the team that won the Super Bowl was pretty much the team on the field for over half the season.
I guess as long as Aaron stays healthy (even he wasn't perfectly healthy in 2010), we should be okay, not great, but we'll have a chance.

P.S. I know he doesn't count on the injury report, but I still think we can milk the loss of Nick Collins as one more "woe is me" excuse in the event the season falls to pieces. Dude should've been an all-pro for at least 3 more years.
