A shoulder injury has Green Bay 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.
Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Perry tallied two sacks in Sunday's victory over the 49ers. Perry is working mainly in a reserve role this season, but that has not stopped him from racking up three sacks through the Packers' first four games.
That total matches what he posted in 15 games in 2014 and is just one off his career high of four sacks, set in 2013.
"In order to become successful you had to make sure you don't go into the next year with things lingering on," Perry said. "Without a question, it was something that had to be done. We're good now. We're on the right track. So we're looking good."
The surgery is why he has been unable to practice with his teammates this offseason. It's also unknown if he'll be cleared by training camp.
Perry totaled 22 tackles and three sacks in 2014.
By bypassing the option, Perry can become a free agent after the 2015 season. In 2014, he produced 23 tackles and three sacks in 15 games.
