The Green Bay Packers appear to be healthier as they prepare for Sunday's game at Minnesota

. Only four players sat out of practice Wednesday -- safety Morgan Burnett with a bad hamstring, inside linebacker Joe Thomas with an injured ankle, outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks with a back issue, and corner Kevin King with a concussion. Receiver Jordy Nelson, the N-F-L leader in touchdown catches with six, took part in the entire practice and he insists he'll play Sunday after a back injury late in the Dallas game. With rookie Aaron Jones excelling, coach Mike McCarthy is not sure what running back Ty Montgomery's status will be issue -- even after he was a full participant Wednesday with his broken ribs. Both starting tackles, Bryan Bulaga and David Bahktiari, were limited with their lingering injuries.
