The Green Bay Packers added another name to the injury list just before halftime. Outside linebacker Nick Perry appeared to injury his knee while putting some pressure on Brock Osweiler. He is questionable to return.

Perry had a decent pass rush on the Dolphins left tackle but after arriving at Osweiler a step too late, it appeared that someone fell into his knee and it hyper-extended. It looked pretty painful but after a short time on the ground, Perry was being assisted off by the Packers medical staff.

With Perry’s status uncertain, Kyler Fackrell looks to get the bulk of the reps. Fackrell has had a decent game so far racking up three tackles and a sack. In his limited snaps so far, Fackrell has also been dropping into coverage and doing a good job guarding the flats.

Perry was the third Packer to leave the game in the first half due to injury, joining safety Kentrell Brice (ankle) and offensive lineman Lucas Patrick (concussion). Both of those two players were ruled out for the remainder of the game.

UPDATE: Perry was also ruled out of the game early in the fourth quarter.
