Green Bay Packers guards Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang returned to practice Thursday, three days before the team's game at Minnesota.

Sitton and Lang were held out of practice Wednesday. Their rotation mirrored last week, when the two guards rode stationary bikes Wednesday and practiced Thursday.

Sitton (toe) and Lang (ankle) were injured in the Packers' loss to the New Orleans Saints on Oct. 26, but they've played in both of Green Bay's blowout home wins against the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles since.

Tight end Brandon Bostick (hip) and outside linebacker Nick Perry (shoulder) rode stationary bikes during the media's opening viewing period at the beginning of practice. Cornerback Jarrett Bush (groin) was also held out.

After practicing Wednesday with a minor groin injury, outside linebacker Clay Matthews once again practiced Thursday. So did fellow outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott (hamstring).
