The Green Bay Packers have a quick turnaround this week, with a game on Thursday. So Tuesday’s practice is going to give us a fair idea of which guys won’t play this week. Those guys appear to be receivers Ty Montgomery and Jared Abbrederis, and center Corey Linsley.
Montgomery and Abbrederis being out shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Abbrederis would miss several weeks, last week. Montgomery, meanwhile, hasn’t played in a month and we’ve given up on worrying about him coming back.
Linsley hurt his ankle against Minnesota. He was replaced by J.C. Tretter for the majority of that game and, by all accounts, the backup played extremely well.
That shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, either. Tretter was slated to be the Packers’ starting center last season, until he got injured in training camp. That injury ultimately cost him the job, with Linsley playing well in his absence.
Tretter is both larger and more athletic than Linsley.
Too bad he can’t play tackle…
On the defensive side of the ball, it appears defensive back Micah Hyde may be hard pressed to play on Thursday. He started practice, but didn’t finish it.

Hyde had a hip injury going into the Vikings game. He aggravated that injury in Minnesota and had to be carted off.
Might be time to think about giving the guy a week off.
Hyde should be rested for a while. Either his hip or something else is severely affecting his game. He has been awful. We used to be too deep at safety. Now Richardson and Hyde are out. Hope Gunther or Rollins can step in.
Again, tmz packers. Too concerned with Olivia Munn and Rodgers rather than swearinger getting a tryout. Maybe hydes injury is worse than being let on thus they are looking to sign safety depth
