Packers OLB Nick Perry Underwent Surgery For Several Broken Fingers, Still Hoping To Return

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Packers OLB Nick Perry recently underwent surgery to repair several broken fingers on his hand and is obviously out for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.

According to Rapoport, the Packers are still hoping Perry will be able to play again this season with a cast on his hand.

The Packers continue to deal with injuries at the linebacker position, as Clay Matthews, Blake Martinez and Jake Ryan are also injured right now.

Perry, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract before testing the open market for the first time this year and eventually returning to the Packers on a one-year, $4 million contract.

It’s worth mentioning that the Packers elected to not pick up Perry’s fifth-year option last May, which is why he hit the open market.

In 2016, Perry has appeared in 12 games for the Packers and recorded 48 tackles, eight sacks, one interception, and four pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 13 edge rusher out of 109 qualifying players.
