The Green Bay Packers’ already lean inside linebacker room grew even thinner on Friday as rookie inside linebacker Sam Barrington sat out of practice.

If Barrington couldn’t play on Sunday, that would leave the Packers with only two healthy inside linebackers in A.J. Hawk and Jamari Lattimore. They’ve already ruled out Brad Jones for Sunday’s game against Baltimore and Robert Francois suffered a season-ending Achilles tear in relief of Jones in last week’s 22-9 win over Detroit.

Cornerback Casey Hayward was practicing for the second consecutive day. Outside linebacker Andy Mulumba (ankle) and cornerback Jarrett Bush (hamstring) also returned.

Along with Barrington and Jones, outside linebacker Clay Matthews, running back James Starks and offensive lineman Greg Van Roten were not practicing.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy is scheduled to speak at about 12:30 p.m. Central Time.
