Nick Perry joined Corey Linsley as the only Green Bay Packers not participating in Thursday’s padded practice at Ray Nitschke Field.
Perry was limited in Wednesday’s practice with a shoulder injury. The fourth-year outside linebacker has had a history of shoulder ailments, including this past offseason when he underwent surgery that forced him out of the entire offseason program.
Linsley hasn’t practiced at all this week after aggravating a sprained ankle last Thursday against Detroit, leaving his availability in doubt for Sunday’s matchup with Dallas. Backup center JC Tretter has been taking all of Linsley’s practice reps this week and would start if he can’t go.
Right tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle), right guard T.J. Lang (shoulder) and left guard Josh Sitton (back) all participated in the portion of practice at Clarke Hinkle Field that was open to the media. Receiver Ty Montgomery (ankle) practiced in pads for the first time since he aggravated a high-ankle sprain in practice on Nov. 19.
Tight end Andrew Quarless, currently on temporary injured reserve, took part in padded work for the second consecutive week, an indication he may be ready to be activated back onto the 53-man roster after missing the last nine games with a torn MCL.
The Packers’ full injury report will be released later this afternoon.
