Packers fans got a belated Christmas present today, as several of the Packers on the injury report over the past few weeks returned to practice. As reported on Twitter by Rob Demovsky of the Press-Gazette and Tom Silverstein of the Journal-Sentinel, the following players all returned to practice:
TE Tom Crabtree
RB Alex Green
CB Davon House
WR Jordy Nelson
DE C.J. Wilson
DE Jerel Worthy
There were a few notable names not practicing today. Specifically, Mason Crosby was out with the flu (which I'm sure will lead to several jokes in the comments) and Josh Sitton was not practicing either, potentially with flu symptoms as well. Randall Cobb reportedly had his helmet on during the media portion of practice, but was not participating in team drills, while Charles Woodson was only working on the scout team. James Starks remained sidelined.
We'll have more on the Packers' injury reports as the week moves along, but for now it appears that most of the players who have been banged up in recent weeks will be back on the field on Sunday afternoon to play against the Vikings.
