Zombo returns to practice for Packers

Jay Cutler, Frank Zombo, Frank Omiyale

Packers linebacker Frank Zombo returned to practice Friday for the first time since December 17.

He was limited, but it sounds like Zombo has a good chance to be available for the Super Bowl.   Erik Walden (ankle) sat out of practice, but coach  Mike McCarthy anticipated he’d be ready to practice next Wednesday.

Walden is expected to keep his starting job over Zombo for the big game, which Zombo understands.

“He’s played great football,” Zombo told Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.   “He’s helped the team win.”

Zombo and Walden are both officially listed as questionable on the initial injury report released Friday.   Linebacker Desmond Bishop (ankle),  tackle Chad Clifton (neck), linebacker A.J. Hawk (knee), wideout Greg Jennings (knee),  and center Jason Spitz (calf) are all listed as probable.

For the Steelers,  safety Will Allen (knee),  center Maurkice Pouncey (ankle),  and defensive end Aaron Smith (triceps) are listed as questionable.

Pouncey is expected to miss the Super Bowl.  Smith was limited in practice Friday.   Tackle Johnathan Scott (ribs) sat out practice Friday, but was listed as probable.  The rest of the Steelers should be ready to roll for the big game.

    Maurkice Pouncey questionable? What’s the question, Crutches or walking boot during the game?

    I hope to see a Zorro “Z” sack celebration in the Super Bowl, preferably on the last play.

    Funny, all I see is Packer knobs running their mouth on PFT. Thumbs up .We are the best, hail Ted Thompson,Steelers are dead meat.

    While Steeler fan is lying low,you know, like they been there before. For they have modern SB rings,not ancient Packer championships in the tv dinner era. Enjoy the ride until kickoff Pack fan because that’s when your happy world gets turned upside down!!!

    @ Pervy

    Kinda like how you ran your mouth about the Vikings all year? How’d that turn out? You run your mouth on this site more than any other poster.

    There’s nothing wrong with being confident, and being happy to get some guy back off injuries.

    Enjoy your offseason rube.

    Go Pack GO!!!

    I really hope Pouncey plays. It would be fun to see BJ manhandle a gimp.
