GREEN BAY – One day after coach Mike McCarthy said he didn’t think Jermichael Finley would be able to practice on Thursday because of a toe injury, that’s exactly what the Green Bay Packers tight end did, donning pads and taking part in Thursday’s workout.
Finley did not practice Wednesday after playing through the toe injury in last Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. He suffered the injury in the first quarter of that game.
Left guard Josh Sitton, who sat out Wednesday’s practice with a back injury, also was in pads and participating during the portion of practice open to reporters.
So too was safety Morgan Burnett, who missed last week's game when the hamstring injury he suffered in an Aug. 23 preseason game flared up on him last Friday.
The only player not participating in practice was cornerback Casey Hayward, who has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against Washington with a hamstring injury.
McCarthy is slated to speak to reporters after practice.
