The Green Bay Packers will start training camp workouts this morning without four players on the practice field.
Linebacker/defensive end Mike Neal and linebacker Nick Perry both failed their physicals and were placed on PUP. It means they suffered injuries while taking part in football activities.
For both players, they can start practicing as soon as they can pass their physicals. If they don’t practice in training camp, then they would be eligible to start the season on PUP. Under that scenario, they wouldn’t be able to play for six weeks.
Seventh round draft pick Jeff Janis, veteran defensive end Jerel Worthy and veteran free agent Letroy Guion were put on injured reserve. Janis was put on the non-football illness list, while Worthy and Guion were put on the non-football injury list. Worthy missed most of the off-season after his grandmother was accidentally shot to death in her home in Ohio.
All three players can be cleared to play once they pass their physicals.
Two players that missed offseason workouts because of injury, Clay Matthews and tight end Andrew Quarless both passed physicals and will be on the practice field this morning.
The Packers will practiced at 8:20 today, Sunday and Monday before taking Tuesday off. They’ll return to morning workouts at 8:20 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday before the teams Family Night practice on Saturday, August 2nd (6:25pm) at Lambeau Field.
