The Green Bay Packers will practice for the final time in advance of the next game on Saturday, as Friday is typically their day off. However, we'll be monitoring Clay Matthews' and Nick Perry's statuses closely, as the two players have been limited or held out of practice entirely this week.

Speaking of Matthews, he and his buddies on the Packers' offensive line were featured in a trailer released Thursday for a movie about singing groups. The topic of the song they're singing is "butts." Check out the article in curds below and discuss.

Nick Perry's injury is more concerning, though his ability to practice on Saturday will be critical for him playing on Sunday.

He's averaging just under 80 receiving yards per game in his last three contests, compared to only 60 yards per game on the ground. But I bet you won't hear the Packers coaches complaining.

By now, you've probably heard that Clay Matthews and four members of the Packers' offensive line made a cameo in the movie Pitch Perfect 2, which is set to release on May 15. Here's the backstory on how that came to be. Speaking of "backstory", they apparently sang something involving butts, but we'll have to wait to see what song it actually is. Feel free to speculate in the comments (but keep it clean, please).
