Zombo returns to practice for Packers

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?

    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!!!
