Green Bay Packers tight end Brandon Bostick and outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott sat out of Wednesday's chilly outdoor practice.

Green Bay Packers tight end Brandon Bostick makes a touchdown catch in the first quarter against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

A fixture on special teams, Bostick has only played 25 offensive snaps this season, but hauled in a 1-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Aaron Rodgers on fourth-and-goal to start the Packers' scoring in a 55-14 rout of the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

With most of the starters out by the fourth quarter, Elliott had a career-high three tackles against Chicago. Neither he nor Bostick was listed on the team's post-game injury report.

Josh Sitton (toe) and T.J. Lang (ankle) also were back on the sideline during Wednesday's practice as the starting guards continue to rehab lower-body injuries.

Neither veteran practiced at all last week, but both returned to play against the Bears. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday both players appeared to come out of the game without any further injury.

The rest of the roster, including recently signed offensive lineman Jamon Meredith, practiced in some capacity.

Everyone for the Philadelphia Eagles practiced Wednesday with the exception of Nick Foles.

McCarthy was scheduled to speak to the media after practice.
