Practice report: (Almost) all hands on deck
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers are about as healthy as they have been in months heading into Sunday’s NFC wild-card playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.
The only player not at practice on Thursday was outside linebacker Clay Matthews, who already has been ruled out because of his thumb injury.
The other 52 players on the roster all took part in the full-pads practice.
Running back Eddie Lacy (ankle) practiced on a Thursday for the first time since he sprained his right ankle on Dec. 8 against the Atlanta Falcons. The past three weeks, Lacy had been practicing only on Fridays.
Banged-up linebackers Brad Jones (ankle), Mike Neal (abdomen), and Nick Perry (foot) all practiced.
The Packers don’t appear to be limiting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb, who returned last Sunday after lengthy absences. Neither was even listed on Wednesday’s injury report.
The full injury report will be available after practice.
