As they prepare for their upcoming game against the Dallas Cowboys, the Green Bay Packers are trending towards having their full slate of wide receivers available for the first time in a long time. Rookie wideout Ty Montgomery has been practicing this week, after missing the team's last six games with an ankle sprain.
The signs are hopeful for Montgomery's return to the field. On Thursday when speaking to the media, here's what Mike McCarthy said about Montgomery's ability to practice earlier in the week:
"Ty Montgomery has definitely cleared a hurdle. He's practicing. So far, so good, we'll see what he can do today."
That's good news for an unproductive Packers receiving corps, which has struggled mightily since Montgomery was injured in week six. His final status will likely be determined during the team's Saturday practice, after which the Packers typically update their Friday injury report.
Two Packers were unable to practice today - center Corey Linsley, who was out on Wednesday as well, and linebacker Nick Perry, who was limited yesterday. The Packers limited Perry's snaps last week in Detroit, and his shoulder injury is looking like it may have been the cause of that.
Aside from Linsley, the rest of the starting line appears on track to play this Sunday. His replacement, JC Tretter, has not appeared on the injury report at all, while the other four starters all practiced in some capacity on Thursday.
Here's the full report from Thursday's practice.
