The Green Bay Packers received some good news when they returned to the practice field on Sunday evening.
Center Corey Linsley (ankle), defensive back Micah Hyde (hip) and receiver Jared Abbrederis (chest/ribs) all returned during the team’s late walk-through inside the Don Hutson Center. All three sat out of Thursday’s 17-13 loss to the Chicago Bears, the team’s fourth loss in its last five games.
Right tackle Bryan Bulaga also practiced after spraining his ankle against Chicago in the fourth quarter and not returning. The only non-participants were right guard T.J. Lang (shoulder), cornerback Damarious Randall (knee) and receiver Ty Montgomery (ankle), who had his helmet at the beginning of practice but didn’t do anything during the portion open to the media.
Tight end Andrew Quarless also didn’t practice, as Packers coach Mike McCarthy alluded to Sunday morning. Quarless is still waiting to be cleared from the knee injury that landed him on temporary injured reserve after a Week 3 game against Kansas City.
The Packers don't have to release their first injury report until Monday, but will hold locker-room availability at approximately 5:45 p.m. Central Time.
