Nick Perry: Visiting Pacific Northwest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry will take a free-agent visit to Seattle some time this week, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Perry had spent the past seven seasons in Green Bay but was cut this offseason by the team to make room for other acquisitions. The USC product has has never played a full 16-game season in his career but seems to be fully healthy this offseason. The Seahawks could add Perry to their linebacker corps, as the team awaits the fate of Mychal Kendricks (lower leg), who could face jail time after pleading guilty to insider trading.

Nick Perry: Sheds injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry was released by the Packers without any injury stipulation on Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Perry's lack of an injury tag upon release means that he was able to pass a physical, and thereby given received medical clearance. A clean bill of health will be beneficial to Perry as he enters the open market, but he's proven to carry an injury risk alongside his upside. The 28-year-old linebacker ended last season on injured reserve due to ankle and knee issues, and has yet to suit up for a full 16-game season through his seven years in the NFL.

Nick Perry: Cut after being replaced
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers are releasing Perry (knee), Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Already in danger of being cut, Perry's fate was sealed Tuesday morning when the Packers reached agreements to sign fellow outside linebackers Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith. Despite notching just 1.5 sacks in nine games this past season, Perry shouldn't have too much trouble drumming up interest on the open market, considering he had 18 sacks in 26 games the previous two years. It helps that he won't factor into the formula for compensatory draft picks -- something that only applies to players that had their contracts expire.

Packers' Nick Perry: Uncertain to remain in Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (knee) is a candidate to be released this offseason, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Yet to endure a full 16-game season through seven years in the league, Perry has proven to be a high injury risk -- and one that doesn't come cheap relative to his meager production, considering Perry's cap charge is almost $15 million in 2019. Green Bay will only save about $3 million against the cap by letting him go prior to the third day of the league year in March -- when the Packers owe the linebacker a $4.8 million roster bonus -- but the savings jumps to roughly $7 and $10 million in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

Packers' Nick Perry: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Perry missed his first game of the season at Seattle last week and was already ruled out for Sunday's game at Minnesota. The 28-year-old dealt with a concussion in addition to ankle and knee issues as he will finish the season on IR for the third time in his career. Perry had only 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks in nine games, posting the worst numbers since his rookie season in 2012, when he played only six games. Kyler Fackrell will step into a starting role at outside linebacker -- he already leads the team with eight sacks -- while Reggie Gilbert serves as the primary backup.

Packers' Nick Perry: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Perry was unable to practice in any extent this week and will miss his second straight game due to a lingering knee injury. Kyler Fackrell and Reggie Gilbert will once again benefit from an uptick in snaps at the outside linebacker position opposite Clay Matthews during Sunday's tilt against the Vikings.

Packers' Nick Perry: Won't play Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

Perry didn't fly with the team to Seattle and will remain in Green Bay to receive further treatment for the knee injury he sustained in the Week 10 win over the Dolphins. Kyler Fackrell and Reggie Gilbert should see increased reps at the outside linebacker spot opposite Clay Matthews with Perry unavailable Thursday.

Packers' Nick Perry: Won't return Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (knee) will not return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Perry was helped off the field after suffering a knee injury during Sunday's tilt against the Dolphins and will remain sidelined. The veteran linebacker has not played a full 16-game season in his NFL career, so his participation in practice will be worth monitoring as Thursday's game against the Seahawks approaches.

November 11, 2018 06:08 PM
Packers' Nick Perry: Exits game with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to a knee injury.

Perry required the help of two trainers to leave the field Sunday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports. If Perry is unable to return Week 10, expect Kyler Fackrell to slot into the starting lineup.

Packers' Nick Perry: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Perry was questionable for Sunday's tilt due to an ankle injury but appears to have gotten fully healthy. The starting linebacker will attempt to contain Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 9.

Packers' Nick Perry: Questionable for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots with an ankle injury, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Perry has dealt with the ankle injury throughout the season but he has yet to miss a contest. The 28-year-old has been quiet this season with only 1.5 sacks through seven games, so the Packers will hope he is available and comes alive against Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Packers' Nick Perry: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (ankle) won't carry an injury designation into Monday's game against the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Perry was a limited participant at practice this week but the Packers apparently aren't too worried about his availability for Monday. The 28-year-old should take on his usual workload against San Francisco.

October 7, 2018 03:56 PM
Packers' Nick Perry: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Lions due to an ankle injury.

Perry exited Sunday's game during the fourth quarter and has been replaced by Kyler Fackrell. If Perry is unable to return to the field, expect an update on his health after the conclusion of Sunday's divisional matchup.

Packers' Nick Perry: Half sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry recorded two tackles (one solo) and 0.5 sacks across 33 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Bills.

Perry was dealing with a concussion all of last week but was cleared on Saturday. Still, Perry recorded his lowest snap count of the season, playing in 57 percent of defensive plays. If he remains healthy this week, he could see a slight uptick in action Sunday in Detroit.

Packers' Nick Perry: Set to play against Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (concussion) is active Sunday against the Bills.

Perry returned to practice on a limited basis Friday after beginning the week in concussion protocol. He'll ultimately end up taking the field, providing Green Bay with a reliable pass rush option opposite Clay Matthews.

September 28, 2018 02:52 PM
Packers' Nick Perry: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Perry continues to work his way back from a concussion suffered during last Sunday's loss to the Redskins. If Perry is sidelined for any amount of time, expect Kyler Fackrell to suit up in his place.

September 26, 2018 07:24 PM
Packers' Nick Perry: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Perry suffered a concussion during Sunday's contest against the Redskins and continues to work toward clearing the league's concussion protocol. It remains to be seen whether the 28-year-old will suit up against the Bills in Week 4, but if Perry is sidelined for any amount of time, Kyler Fackrell would start in his place.

September 25, 2018 10:36 PM
Packers' Nick Perry: Dealing with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Perry left Sunday's contest versus the Redskins with a head injury and was subsequently diagnosed with a concussion. The 28-year-old linebacker will have to clear concussion protocol in order to play Sunday against the Bills. Kyler Fackrell -- who replaced Perry on Sunday -- would be in line for an increased workload if the latter is inactive.

September 23, 2018 08:48 PM
Packers' Nick Perry: Suffers possible head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry is under evaluation for a concussion Sunday against Washington.

Perry was replaced by Kyler Fackrell to conclude Week 3's game. The nature of Perry's injury wasn't disclosed, but expect an update on the starting linebacker's health heading into Week 4.

September 11, 2018 08:24 PM
Packers' Nick Perry: Five tackles and sack in comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perry totaled five tackles (four solo), including one sack, and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over Chicago.

Perry was quiet for much of Sunday's game, but his strip sack of Mitchell Trubisky iced the Packers' comeback late in the fourth quarter. Perry has been a quality pass rusher when healthy, although he has dealt with a myriad of injuries over the course of his first six seasons. His health is important for Green Bay, which is short on depth at the outside linebacker position. Perry will look to disrupt the Kirk Cousins-led Vikings offense in Week 2.
