Perry (ankle) sat out of OTAs on Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Due to injuries, Perry has yet to complete a full campaign in his six-year career, but he's combined for 90 tackles and 18 sacks in 26 games over the last two seasons. The Packers are looking to use counterpart Clay Matthews in a more versatile role -- moving him between inside and outside linebacker -- during 2018, which should affect how offenses key in on Perry as well.
Perry had already been ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Lions, but the move opens up a roster spot for the Packers. The 27-year-old was bothered by injuries throughout the season and will end the year not playing in the final two games of 2017.
Perry (ankle/shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Perry will sit out Sunday for the second straight week and the fourth time this season. His seven sacks in 2017 were the second most in his career, but he was plagued by injuries all season, and was too infrequently the impact pass rusher the Packers hoped he would be after they handed him a hefty contract coming off an 11-sack campaign. The team will again be counting on Perry to be its top pass rusher in 2018, but he will likely have to be healthy to do so, and that's a major question for a player who has missed 24 games over his six professional seasons.
Perry (ankle/shoulder) is listed as inactive for Saturday's game against the Vikings.
Perry has battled through hand, foot and shoulder injuries this season, but with the Packers knocked out of playoff contention, there's no reason to push him. The sixth-year pro has 38 tackles and seven sacks through 12 games this season, and Kyler Fackrell and Ahmad Brooks will likely scoop up his workload.
Perry (ankle, shoulder) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Vikings, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Perry missed the entire week of practice as he continues to nurse ankle and shoulder injuries. The banged-up linebacker played 27 defensive snaps last Sunday against the Panthers, but he ultimately left the contest after tweaking his ankle. Kyler Fackrell will be the next man up if Perry is indeed ruled out.
