Found November 07, 2012 on Down and Distance:
Another shattering injury for the Green Bay Packers, who seem to get bad injury news week after week. The roster seems as if it’s dwindling down and they are running out of players, but the Packers continue to steamroll opponents, and are considered one of the hottest teams in the league right now. Per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Packers Rookie LB Nick Perry is likely to miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on his wrist for an injury sustained in week two of the season. Green Bay could be without Rookie LB Nick Perry for the remainder of the season. (AP Photo/Mike Roemer) Perry has been wearing a cast since the injury took place, but further diagnosis on it determined it would require surgery. He was also battling a Knee injury at the time of the surgery which ESPN reports he’ll be getting a second opinion on. In his debut season, Perry hasn’t been the dominating force in which the Packers had hoped for on the field, bringing in a stat-line of 18 tackles and two sacks on the year. The news couldn’t come at a worse time for the Packers defense who will also be missing key pieces such as Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews for at least the next few weeks. The Packers are on a four game win streak despite injury after injury, the offense seems as if they have figured it out, and the guys on defense are stepping up. Hopefully for the sake of the fans the team can keep it up.     The post Report: Packers Rookie LB Nick Perry out for the season appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
