Barclay, Shields and Perry return to lineup for Packers

Aaron Rodgers is still out for the Packers, but they are getting three other players back in the lineup for their Thanksgiving Day game against the Lions.

Right tackle Don Barclay, cornerback Sam Shields and linebacker Nick Perry are all active for the Pack for the first time since suffering injuries against the Eagles in Week 10. That can’t make up for Rodgers, obviously, but it does give the Packers at bit more at their disposal as they try to halt a four-game winless streak.

Defensive lineman Johnny Jolly is also active for Green Bay. He missed last week’s tie with the Vikings because of a groin injury. Wide receiver¬†Chris Harper, linebacker Nate Palmer, linebacker Jamari Lattimore, tight end Brandon Bostick, defensive lineman C.J. Wilson and defensive lineman Jerel Worthy join Rodgers on the inactive list.

As expected, cornerback Chris Houston is out with a foot injury for the home team. Wide receiver/kick returner Micheal Spurlock, quarterback Kellen Moore, running back Mikel Leshoure, guard Leroy Harris, guard Rodney Austin and tackle Corey Hilliard will also be watching the game before digging into turkey.

    It doesn’t matter. Lions should win this game…. unless the NFL has something to say about that.

    Great news! There is so much to be thankful for in Green Bay today. Meaningful football. Improving team health. A NFL record 13 World Championships.

    Viking fans are thankful for elastic waistbands.

    My Packers and their fans are the best thing since sliced bread. I love them whole-heartedly.

    Packers defense is non existent today. They are pathetic.

    @filthy

    You call this performance by the Packers “meaningful football”?

    It’s meaningful for the Lions, but the hapless and tasteless Packers are meaningless.
