Report: Packers OLB Nick Perry Suffers Broken Foot

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

According to multiple sources, Packers linebacker Nick Perry suffered a broken foot during yesterday's game in Baltimore and will miss time.

Remember that magical and carefree time in your life when the only worry in your head was how much time Randall Cobb and James Jones would miss?

Well, it's time to take a cold shower and wake up to the Packers' new reality.

According to multiple sources, outside linebacker Nick Perry has broken his foot.

For those in need of a quick refresher, Perry has enjoyed his two greatest games as a pro these past two weeks against Detroit and Baltimore. Not only that, but he's the Packers' fill-in for Clay Matthews who's recovering from thumb surgery.

Accounting for these injuries plus those to Brad Jones and Robert Francois, the Packers will be without four of the linebackers they starting the season with when they play the Browns this Sunday.

Needless to say, there isn't much depth left for Green Bay at linebacker. The Packers will lean heavily on Mike Neal while giving an increased workload for rookies Andy Mulumba and Nate Palmer. Barring an acquisition, the Packers cannot afford an injury to another pass rusher, and it's not as though Neal has been the picture of health during his career. Hopefully the team gets some much needed good news regarding Cobb and Jones later this afternoon.
