The hits keep coming for the Green Bay Packers.
Second-year outside linebacker Nick Perry reportedly sustained a broken foot during Sunday’s 19-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens, according to WDUZ radio in Green Bay and WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee.
Perry was injured after his sack and forced fumble of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco near the end of the first half. He started the second half on the sidelines before returning for a few plays and finishing with five tackles and a sack on 34 defensive snaps.
Rookie Andy Mulumba played 39 defensive snaps in his place with sixth-round rookie Nate Palmer also rotating in for 10 more.
After the game, however, Perry didn’t seem too concerned about the injury.
“My ankle hurts a little bit. That’s about it. We’re good,” Perry said. “We’re not looking forward to any more injuries, that’s for sure. It’s just preventative. I’ll be back next week.”
A first-round pick in 2012, Perry played the first six games of last season before requiring season-ending wrist surgery. He started slow through the first month of the season and was even benched against Detroit last week, but wound up registering 11 tackles and three sacks since.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy was scheduled to meet with the media on Monday afternoon.
