The Green Bay Packers
officially will be without four starters on defense against the St. Louis Rams
on Sunday after outside linebacker Nick Perry (knee), cornerback Sam Shields
(shin/ankle) and defensive tackle B.J. Raji (ankle) all were ruled out by Mike
McCarthy on Friday.
Jennings, Perry and Shields were all seen as long shots to play
this weekend, but Raji was able to practice at a limited capacity Thursday.
However, McCarthy said yesterday that Raji wasn’t ready to go.
