Packers Back at Practice on Thursday

There was no practice on Wednesday, but two on Thursday, for the Green Bay Packers. The Family Night Scrimmage is coming up on Saturday. 

 - Injuries were one of the major topics. It was announced that SS Atari Bigby will have surgery on Friday to clean out scar tissue around his surgically repaired ankle. He could be back before the regular season begins. Also, S Will Blackmon had problems with his surgically repaired knee, so they're thin at safety for the moment. But it might present a better opportunity for rookie 3rd round S Morgan Burnett. And Mike McCarthy told us to keep our eye on undrafted rookie S Anthony Levine

 - It looks like the knee injury suffered by undrafted rookie WR Jeff Moturi was serious enough to place him on I.R. The Packers announced the signing of 2nd year WR Jason Chery to take his roster spot.

 - There was some good news. Several players returned from injury according to the Journal-Sentinel:

Returning to practice were WR Greg Jennings (personal leave), G Daryn Colledge (elbow), Newhouse (concussion), DE Justin Harrell (fatigue) and LB Brad Jones (back).

However Jones did not regain his starting spot. LB Brandon Chillar is still playing with the first team at outside LB opposite LB Clay Matthews. 

The other major topic was the continuing struggles, or recent struggles, of some players. I'm not going to read too much into any of it until I see those players struggle during the preseason games.
