Report: Nick Perry has broken foot

AP

The Packers continue to be put to the test by injuries.

According to Chris Havel of 1400 AM in Green Bay, outside linebacker Nick Perry sustained a broken foot in the Packers’ 19-17 victory at Baltimore on Sunday. According to the report, Perry is not expected to miss the entire season. Lance Allan of Milwaukee’s NBC affiliate WTMJ confirmed Perry’s injury.

Perry made one of the key plays in the win at Baltimore, forcing quarterback Joe Flacco to fumble late in the first half. Teammate Datone Jones recovered the fumble, and his return set up a Green Bay field goal at the end of the quarter.

The Packers were without Pro Bowl outside linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb) on Sunday, so losing Perry for any length of time would be tough to take. The club’s 2012 first-round pick, Perry has recorded three sacks in the last two games for Green Bay.

  1. Because of course he did. Damn it!!! Can they catch a frakking break? He played very well on the right, looked like they were going to weather the few weeks without CM III, so of course he is injured!

  2. Bryan Bulaga, Casey Hayward, DuJuan Harris, James Starks, Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Morgan Burnett, James Jones, Randall Cobb – not to mention the guys on PUP – Derek Sherrod a 1st rd pick & Jerel Worthy a 2nd rd pick.

    Yet fans of other teams rip their 3-2 record. 49ers, Redskins, Bengals, Lions & Ravens. I only see 1 bad team on that schedule so far. At SF, AT CIN and AT BAL not gimme games in the NFL. This team ever gets healthy watch out.

  3. Geesh…this team has really been struggling with injuries the past few years. Even going back to their superbowl run I remember they always were plugging in backups.

    They’ve also lost a pro bowl safety in Nick Collins a couple years back.

    Strength and conditioning coach, or are these freak injuries?

    On some, maybe. Big maybe, but maybe. CM III though and Perry, hardly. Same with Jones and Cobb. Broken thumb, broken foot, sprained PCL and helmet to the knee resulting in whatever the hell he has are hardly strength and conditioning coach’s fault

  5. Actually the Packers do seem to catch a lot of breaks. And tears, sprains, hyperextensions, snakebites… Hope they manage to find 22 guys to suit up by the end of the season.
    Overcoming adversity is one thing. Overcoming decimation is something else.
    And keep pushing for that 18 game season, Roger. The dreams of a lot of “I could do better” armchair generals could come true yet.

  6. Is there some where that tracks the statistic of injuries per year? The Packers since 2010 have to be the far and away leader in that category.

  7. If there is a silver lining here, despite all the injuries, only two players have landed on IR; those being Bulaga and Francois.

    If this team can get most of the guys back towards the end of the season, they will make some noise in the playoffs.

  8. TT is getting to be the madden curse for 1st round picks. Datone Jones should be scared at this point.

    Raji (2009) – Playing
    Matthews (2009) – Injured
    Bulaga (2010) – out for season
    Sherrod (2011) – IR since rookie year
    Perry (2012) – Injured
    Jones (2013) – Shaking in his cleats

    I just laugh at your stupid comment. You got to be a seachicken fan. Packers and it’s fans been past that game lol

    All the cool kids know it’s Sheattle now…don’t tell me Cardinal fans are smarter than Greenbay fans…enjoy laughing at your wide reciever situation while your at it. Have a nice day.

  10. Ok seabiscuit and no kids here but you. And no way they could handle the number of injuries like the packers have and still win. What that tell you about the Packers son, Seattle season would be over

  11. The Packers will be fine. The bad-injury year of 2010 turned out pretty good, because The Next Man Up got the job done. A bunch of no-names working hard and getting it done. Good coaching too. They are starting to hit on all cylinders. The no-names will do it again.

    It’s the curse of Golden Tate. His glorious touchdown catch was the exact moment that the Packers lost any relevance whatsoever. Enjoy mediocrity for the next 10 years.

    That’s cute. Your comment reminds me of when I had MY first beer.

  13. Now if Roger’s could get a could get knocked out for the season. Nothing long lasting just the season.

  14. In July, I was hoping the Packers could go one season without being eaten alive by injuries.

    I should really stop getting my hopes up.
