After sitting out Wednesday with knee soreness, Josh Boyd took part in Thursday's padded work with Mike Daniels not participating for the second consecutive day with back soreness.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy didn't seem to be too alarmed with Daniels' injury. He called Daniels "day-to-day" on Wednesday. He's started in all 12 games this season.

Cornerback Sam Shields was again not present after suffering a concussion during Sunday's 26-21 win over New England, throwing his availability into question for Monday night's matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. Davon House replaced him for 44 snaps against the Patriots.

Inside linebacker Jamari Lattimore attended practice, but sat out with an ankle injury. Offensive lineman Lane Taylor wasn't present during the portion of practice open to the media.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy is scheduled to speak with the media at approximately 1:30 p.m. Central Time.
