Packers DE Muhammad Wilkerson suffered a "significant" ankle injury in Sunday's game at Washington, HC Mike McCarthy told reporters Monday. The injury required Wilkerson to have an unspecified procedure on the ankle before he could travel back to Green Bay. We'll await further word on the injury, but it sure sounds like this will end Wilkerson's season. McCarthy also revealed Monday that OLB Nick Perry has entered the league concussion protocol. He'll need to clear that before playing in an upside sack matchup against the Bills on Sunday.
