Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke to the media following Friday’s practice. Here are some highlights from his news conference:

T.J. Lang (Questionable), Clay Matthews (Probable), Andy Mulumba (Doubtful), Nick Perry (Questionable), Aaron Rodgers (OUT), Mike Neal (probable), Ryan Pickett (questionable)

-T.J. Lang practiced today. He took limited reps. He was out there. Looks good for Sunday. I don’t take any chances with those type of things. He felt all along he was ready to play.

-You have to watch all these players who haven’t played, Nick Perry, Clay Matthews – when they’re coming back. You have another component with an offense that doesn’t huddle.

-As far as your hand place and not being able to grab, Matthews spent some individual time with Kevin Greene going through those specifics. The obvious is the ability to grab and use your hands.

-No disrespect to Aaron, he knows this. We addressed the fact, obviously Aaron’s injury on the team, you get to the point it’s about your football team. Special is winning on Sunday. To us as a football team, this is an opportunity to show you how good we can be. This is a great opportunity on our football to step up and be successful. We missed that opportunity Monday night. We’ve had a week to prepare, everyone has a role. We’re not going to throw things against the wall – you’ll recognize us on offense, defense and special teams. We really have moved passed playing without Aaron. Credit to Aaron, he’s going about it like he’s playing. He’s in every meeting. How he can best help Seneca just like Seneca has for him.

-Seneca Wallace looks a lot better. The situational offense is always the challenge. We’re expecting an aggressive defense.

-No, timeline for Aaron Rodgers. He hasn’t had any more testing since Tuesday.

-Nick Perry, how he feels tomorrow will be a huge indication but I feel good about what he did this week.

-John Kuhn may play more.
