Nick Perry to have hand surgery

Nick Perry to have hand surgery”

"Mike McCarthy announced prior to Thursday's practice that Packers linebacker Nick Perry is scheduled for surgery on his injured hand", a report from the team's website noted.

McCarthy didn't have an immediate timeline for his recovery and he wasn't sure if Perry would be able to come back quickly and play with a club on the hand, as he did after having surgery on his hand late last season.

"Violent football player. He plays physical", McCarthy said of Perry. "You look at his play style, that's really part of his game, the violence he plays with, with his hands". Though, it must also be noted that Perry missed only two games last season after undergoing surgery on the same hand.

The Green Bay Packers will be without linebacker Nick Perry for some time.

According to a Thursday morning report from Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Perry will specifically be going under the knife to fix some damage done to his finger and is "almost certainly out this week". Brooks suffered a concussion against the Seahawks in week one, but returned to practice this week. "I think he's a great fit for what we're doing".

"We weren't fundamentally technically sound as good as we could have been in run defense", McCarthy said. If Perry misses Sunday's game against the Bengals, it will ensure that he fails to play in all 16 games for the sixth straight season since the Packers drafted him No. 28 overall in 2012.
