Three Packers players went from practicing on a limited basis Wednesday to fully practicing on Thursday, according to the official Thursday injury report for the Packers-Patriots Week 15 game at Foxborough. The three players were starting OLT Chad Clifton (knees), starting ORG Josh Sitton (knee) and reserve CB Pat Lee (ankle).
In other changes from the Wednesday practice, two Green Bay players — starting LCB Charles Woodson (toe/ankle) and S Anthony Smith (ankle) — went from fully participating on Wednesday to practicing on a limited basis Thursday, while starting OLG Daryn Colledge (knee) participated on a limited basis Thursday after not practicing on Wednesday.
For the Patriots, QB Tom Brady (right shoulder/foot) and starting LCB Devin McCourty (rib) went from not participating on Wednesday to participating on a limited basis Thursday.
The way we see it
It appears the Packers’ offensive line could be getting healthier, with it looking as though Colledge is making every effort to play Sunday evening, and Clifton and Sitton being able to go full tilt in practice on Thursday.
That Woodson’s practice was limited could be bad news for an already very banged-up Packers secondary that faces a huge task against New England’s multifaceted passing attack.
