Nick Perry has only missed one game so far this season and if that remains the case, then he’d tie his career high for games played in a season with 15.
That shouldn’t be notable, except for the fact that Nick Perry is made out of paper and hasn’t played a full NFL season since being drafted in the first round in 2012. And he’s probably not going to tie that career high for games played this year, either.
Perry’s shoulder injury is back.
Perry sprained his AC joint back in mid-October. It’s the same injury Randall Cobb suffered in the preseason.
Perry missed the San Diego game, but came back following the Packers’ bye. The evidence seems to suggest the injury has been bothering him since. After racking up 3.5 sacks in the team’s first five games, Perry hasn’t gotten to the quarterback since.
He apparently aggravated the injury this week, as he didn’t practice on Thursday. Now it looks like he’s a question mark for Sunday.
“Nick’s situation will come down to tomorrow,” coach Mike McCarthy said, Friday morning.
So much for that career season.
