Daryn Colledge's streak of playing in 72 straight NFL games is in jeopardy this week. The Packers' starting left guard didn't practice today because of a back injury, after being a limited participant on Wednesday. The team probably will know by Friday whether he will play. If he doesn't Jason Spitz is his likely replacement, though T.J. Lang has played some left guard as well. "Daryn doesn’t miss practice very often and he doesn’t miss games," coach Mike McCarthy said immediately after practice today. "We’ll have to see where he is and see if he can go at practice tomorrow. I don’t have all the information. There was some testing done while we were at practice, so I’ll know more this afternoon." Receiver Donald Driver (quadriceps) and cornerback Pat Lee (ankle) already have been ruled out for this week. Tight end Andrew Quarless (shoulder) was a limited participant after not practicing Wednesday, which leaves open the possibility for him to play this week. He said he's hoping to go full time Friday. Running back Dimitri Nance (ankle) looks ready to return this week after missing last week's game. He went from limited participation Wednesday to full participation today. McCarthy said outside linebacker Clay Matthews (shin) will be held out of almost work all week but still is expected to play Sunday. Defensive end Ryan Pickett (ankle) was limited for the second straight day, and McCarthy said he probably will test his ankle Friday to determine whether he can play this week. Pickett sat out last week against the New York Jets. Right tackle Mark Tauscher (shoulder) was limited again today, and it appears he won't be ready to return until after next week's bye.
