Along with Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, wide
receiver Jordy Nelson is questionable to play following the team’s bye week.
While Matthews and Nelson will return at some point this season, it was
reported yesterday that linebacker Nick Perry is likely headed to the team’s
injured reserve list following surgery on his wrist.
We interrupt this election to bring you breaking @packers news. LB Nick Perry had surgery on wrist today. He's expected to go on IR #Packers

While the Packers haven’t officially announced a decision
regarding Perry’s future, most are saying that he figures to be out for the
remainder of the season. The linebacker initially sustained the injury during
the team’s regular season opener but continued to play through it.
After recovering from a hamstring injury to return to action
last weekend, Nelson injured his ankle and left the game before recording a
reception. He will have two weeks to recover, but the team is already terming
him questionable when they come out of the bye.
