GREEN BAY - Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley, who is expected to see the majority of snaps in the Hall of Fame game Sunday night against Indianapolis, suffered an ankle injury in practice earlier this week and did not take part in Wednesday night's workout.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Hundley got "nicked" in practice, but he would not specify what the injury was and did not say whether he expects Hundley to play Sunday.

Hundley got his legs tangled on a handoff in practice Monday night and was seen limping afterward, but McCarthy said that was not the play in which he got hurt. Hundley finished the practice and didn't seem to be any worse for the wear.

Because of the heavy load Hundley was expected to carry Sunday night, it's possible McCarthy was holding him out to make sure the injury doesn't get worse. Hundley was on the field Wednesday but wasn't participating.

Starter Aaron Rodgers may not play at all and if Hundley is hurt, the majority of snaps would fall to third-string rookie Joe Callahan.

In other injury news, McCarthy said none of the remaining five PUP players — Jordy Nelson, Ty Montgomery, Corey Linsley, Sam Barrington and Jared Cook — are not ready to return to practice.

Running back James Starks returned after sitting out Monday night with what was believed to be related to cramping he suffered Sunday night.
