Perry picked up the slack Sunday with fellow linebackers Clay Matthews (ankle) and Datone Jones (knee) unable to take the field. He has tallied at least a half sack in each game this year and is now up to 3.5 sacks on the season, which puts him fourth in the league in that category.
The Green Bay Packers and Nick 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.
Nick Perry (shoulder) tallied a season-high seven tackles (three solo) and deflected a pass in the Green Bay 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.
Green Bay 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.
Nick Perry has been diagnosed with a AC joint sprain in his left shoulder but could return after the Green Bay 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.
