Packers Wednesday practice report: Linsley and Sitton sit out

New, comments

The Packers' offensive line remains somewhat banged up after some extra time off.

The Green Bay Packers returned to practice Wednesday, and only offensive linemen Corey Linsley and Josh Sitton sat out completely.

Sitton, who practiced earlier this week, most likely took Wednesday off as part of his week-to-week maintenance for knee and back issues. The left guard has yet to miss a game in 2015, and that appears unlikely to change at this juncture.

As for Linsley, who has battled ankle issues over the past few weeks, his status for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys looks far more questionable. While he did start last Thursday against the Detroit Lions, he left after re-aggravating the injury. JC Tretter replaced him during practice and should start this weekend if Linsley cannot return to action.

The rest of the offensive line participated to some degree. Right guard T.J. Lang's shoulder limited him, as did the knee for Bryan Bulaga. Still, after both missed last week's game, any work represents a positive sign for Green Bay.

Meanwhile, wide receiver Ty Montgomery and cornerback Damarious Randall both participated again on Wednesday. Both missed last week's game, with Montgomery extending his absence to six consecutive games. Given the Packers' offensive struggles, his return could prove valuable.
