The Packers and Perry agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Perry has battled injuries and bouts of ineffectiveness since he was selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. However, he came to life in the Packers' pair of postseason tilts this past season, totaling 3.5 sacks among eight tackles and a forced fumble. If he's able to channel such production over an entire campaign, he could parlay this one-year deal into a big payday. More likely, though, his final defensive snap count will linger around the 33.4 percent he received in 2015.
Perry (shoulder) tallied a season-high seven tackles (three solo) and deflected a pass in the Packers' loss to the Panthers. Perry returned to action the previous week after missing a game with a shoulder injury, and Sunday's effort indicates he is good to go moving forward. Perry notched three sacks in the Packers' first four games but has tallied just a half sack in the three games he has played in since.
Packers linebacker Nick Perry (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Chargers. Perry will miss the first of a potential handful of games due to an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder. The Week 7 bye might help the linebacker miss just one contest, but his progress in the interim will ultimately determine his return.
Packers linbacker Nick Perry has been diagnosed with a AC joint sprain in his left shoulder but could return after the Packers' Week 7 bye, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The injury is accompanied by a 2-to-4 week recovery timetable, meaning he could return following Sunday's game against the Chargers and the Packers' subsequent bye. In his stead, fellow linebackers Mike Neal and Andy Mulumba are poised to take on more reps on the weak side.
A shoulder injury has Packers linebacker Nick Perry done for Sunday against St. Louis, per Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin. Perry put two tackles and a half sack to his ledger before leaving the game. The severity of his injury could emerge in the aftermath of the contest.
