It’s not yet known how long he’ll be out, but it’s a blow to a team that was already thin at outside linebacker. Perry started in place of Clay Matthews, who’s out three to four weeks with a broken thumb, on Sunday.
Perry turned in five tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. It was his second solid game in a row. Perry had two sacks against Detroit the previous week.
So now what?
The next guy up would be undrafted rookie Andy Mulumba. Mulumba has actually been playing fairly regularly as a backup and he has 10 tackles this season.
Rookie Nate Palmer is the only other outside linebacker on the roster. He’s played in just two games this season.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
