Nick Perry’s second opinion for wrist, not knee problem

Packers outside linebacker Nick Perry is getting a second opinion, but not on his knee.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the extra attention is for an earlier wrist injury rather than the more recent knee problem.

Perry injured his left wrist in Week Two against the Bears, and has been on the injury report with both wrist and knee problems since the Texans game on Oct. 14, when he hurt his knee.

The knee problem is apparently progressing well. He wore a cast on his wrist earlier in the season, but had use of all his fingers, so it wasn’t considered a big deal. With the Packers on a bye, they won’t be talking about it until next week. At a time when outside linebacker Clay Matthews could miss a couple of weeks, they need Perry more than ever.
