Bostick out vs. Eagles; hip injury 'not long-term'
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke to reporters on Friday in his last session with them before Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lambeau Field. Here are some highlights:
Out – TE Brandon Bostick (hip), OLB Jayrone Elliott (hamstring)
Probable – G T.J. Lang (ankle), G Josh Sitton (toe)
On Lang and Sitton's outlook:
Looks good. They had a good day yesterday. They went through rehab today. Tomorrow, (they'll do) probably next to nothing
On whether Bostick's injury is long term:
I think his work Tuesday will probably be his biggest indicator. It's not long-term. It's not a big injury.
On changes in the team's practice schedule:
Every year is different. My time here we've been through three generations of practice schedules. Used to be on the field more than now. … There's always a focus where is that line at. We're a young football team. Our new facilities have played biggest part in change
On being among the least-penalized teams in the NFL:
League has put a major emphasis on hand placement. I think our guys are doing a good job during week. It's showing up Sundays.
