A second opinion for Green Bay Packers’ rookie linebacker Nick Perry has apparently turned into a possibly season-ending surgery.
Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com is reporting that no final determination has been made on Perry’s status but it is likely he will be placed on injured reserve.
If Perry is placed on injured reserve, his season would be over. The Packers already used their one “designated to return” injured reserve designation on running back Cedric Benson.
Perry initially injured his wrist in the Packers’ season opener against the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 9. Perry has also been fighting a knee injury the last few weeks since injuring it Oct. 14 against the Houston Texans. With Clay Matthews already expected to miss a couple weeks with a hamstring injury, the loss of Perry will be felt that much more by the Packers.
For the season, Perry has compiled 18 tackles and two sacks in six games.
