Wilkerson has 'significant' ankle injury; Perry has concussion | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

Update: ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports that Wilkerson's season is over.

Recent Shark Bites

Packers CB Jaire Alexander (groin) and S Adrian Amos (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Panthers and available for IDP use.

Packers OLB Nick Perry (knee), S Kentrell Brice (ankle) and CB Kevin King (hamstring) will not travel to Seattle for Thursday night's game, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. That will leave the defense without 3 starters against a solid Seattle offense. Green Bay already sits outside the top 12 of our Week 11 team-D rankings.

Packers OLB Clay Matthews (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Lions. He's not a strong IDP candidate but helps the team D -- albeit in a spot you shouldn't be using it anyway. OLB Nick Perry is already out with an ankle injury.

The Packers will be without their starting OLBs against the Vikings tonight. Nick Perry (ankle) entered the weekend doubtful. Clay Matthews (hamstring) was questionable but will also not play. That can only make the matchup comfier for Vikings QB Case Keenum.

Packers S Morgan Burnett (groin) is active for tonight's game against the Steelers and ready to use in IDP lineups if you waited for him. OLB Clay Matthews (groin) is out, which hurts a defense you shouldn't be using anyway.
