Packers Could Have Up To Ten Players Miss A Practice This Week

(Green Bay, WI) -- As many as ten players could miss at least one practice this week, as the Green Bay Packers get ready to play at Atlanta in Sunday's N-F-C Championship Game.

Coach Mike McCarthy says he has no idea if receiver Jordy Nelson will take the field tomorrow (Wednesday) during the Packers' first full fledged practice of the week. And there are question marks about safety Morgan Burnett, receiver Davante Adams, and offensive linemen David Bahktiari and Bryan Bulaga -- all of whom were hurt in Sunday's divisional round victory at Dallas. McCarthy said everything was positive as of Monday, and in the coach's words, "We'll see how it goes." McCarthy changed his weekday routine more than one month ago, giving the walking wounded more time to rest and rehabilitate -- and he says it's been a general trend throughout the N-F-L compared to five to eight years ago.
