The Green Bay Packers are practicing in front of the public again on Monday , taking the field as they prepare for Friday's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders. The big story this weekend is the return of outside linebacker Nick Perry, who was cleared to practice and removed from the PUP list on Sunday in time for a closed practice. Today will be his first practice in front of fans since last year's training camp, as he missed the entire offseason program following ankle surgery.This should be great news for a Packers defense that has struggled to find a second consistent backup at the position this summer. Reggie Gilbert looks like a solid rotational player through two preseason games, but the team's other backups have yet to display consistency or significant success through most of camp.Meanwhile, Packers fans will hope to see a few players who suffered injuries last Thursday against the Steelers back on the field. That group includes starting running back Jamaal Williams and right guard Justin McCray, as well as wide receiver Jake Kumerow, who appears to be leading the battle for a roster spot and the WR4 job.Follow along with practice and discuss in the comments below.Practice Updates from Packers MediaTweets from promote CB Tony Brown to active roster Cheap Clay Matthews Jersey , place Wilkerson on IR On Saturday, the Green Bay Packers have officially placed defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson on IR, ending his season. In a corresponding move, the vacated roster spot will be filled by cornerback Tony Brown, who was elevated from the practice squad today. Brown, an undrafted rookie, spent the summer with the Los Angeles Chargers before being waived and signed to the Packers practice squad earlier this month. The 6-foot Mason Crosby Jersey , 198-pound defensive back is an elite athlete, as evidenced by his collegiate track and field success. Coming out of Alabama, Brown projected as a nickel or hybrid corner who could be utilized in run support, with the added bonus of special teams experience. He’s a willing tackler with 4.35 speed, making him an intriguing prospect for defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Filling Brown’s spot on the practice squad will be defensive lineman Deon Simon, a journeyman nose tackle who has spent time with the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans.
