The Green Bay Packers' sack leader for this year is out with what's called a "significant hand injury."
E-S-P-N says linebacker Nick Perry already had surgery, and reports say Perry is expected to return before the season ends while playing in a cast. Perry, Green Bay's first round draft choice in 2012, had one of his arms trapped while making a tackle last Sunday against Houston. He was having his best season with a career high eight sacks in the fifth and final year of his extended rookie contract. Meanwhile, Packers' guard T-J Lang returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, after missing three games with a broken foot -- but he's not expected to play in Sunday's home contest against the Seattle Seahawks.
