The Green Bay Packers are almost at full strength.
When the team hit the practice field on Monday, both receiver Davante Adams and Morgan Burnett were active. We expected that since both guys practiced prior to the bye. What we weren’t sure about was nose tackle B.J. Raji and linebacker Nick Perry.
Neither guy practiced the week prior to the bye and both were inactive against San Diego, along with Adams and Burnett.
Both guys joined their teammates on the field on Monday.
That’s a boost to the Packers defense. Both guys are having career seasons.
While it appeared the Packers were just resting Raji, Perry’s injury — a sprained shoulder — was expected to keep him out up to four weeks.
We’ve speculated that he might be available to play on Sunday, but likely wouldn’t practice this week. His Monday return is a bit of a surprise.
It wasn’t all good, though.
Both receiver Ty Montgomery and running back James Starks sat out on Monday.
Montgomery sprained an ankle against San Diego. Starks’ absence was unexplained, but may not be injury-related.
I think we should look into trading for S.Smith(89), the energy, and the toughness he brings to the game can very well be used in Green Bay as we continue on the Superbowl run !! Just a thought
GO! PACK! GO!
Stay on this; I want to know why Starks is out. He is our catalyst on offense right now and we need him…
I agree that Starks has kicked ass this year, but if Lacy is healthy, I wouldn’t say that we are in trouble or that we “need” Starks. Lacy has only played poorly since his injury, so I would not expect him to continue to play poorly if he is now healthy. I think we just need at least one of them to be healthy.
I think we need both of them to be healthy, unless you have some written guarantee that neither will be injured during the game itself.
I think we need all them fuckers healthy…Denver and Carolina won’t be a cake walk.
^This guy gets it.
