BBAO: Nick Perry's season might be over

We're Black and Blue All Over:

Mixed in with the Green Bay Packers' long injury report was the little-known fact that rookie linebacker Nick Perry, who hasn't played since injuring his knee last month, was also dealing with a wrist injury suffered earlier this season. Coach Mike McCarthy said Perry would be getting a second medical opinion this week, but as it turns out, the evaluation was of his wrist and it might mean he will miss the rest of the season.

According to Lance Allan of WTMJ-Ch. 4 in Milwaukee, Perry had surgery on the wrist Tuesday. The Packers made no announcement, but it's hard to imagine him returning anytime soon. If he doesn't play again this season, Perry will finish his rookie year with two sacks in six games. He has been replaced by veteran Erik Walden, who appeared motivated by the decision to draft Perry and has played well.
