The Green Bay Packers’ injury report was noteworthy for whose name was not on the list rather than who was listed.

Linebacker Clay Matthews, who saw his reps limited in the first half of last week’s win at Minnesota due to a groin injury sustained the week before against Philadelphia, was not listed on the initial injury report of this week.

“Clay was a full participant” at Wednesday’s practice, coach Mike McCarthy said. “He looks good.”

Guard Josh Sitton was limited due a toe injury sustained at New Orleans on Oct. 26. It was his first Wednesday participation since the injury. Fellow guard T.J. Lang, who sprained an ankle against the Saints and sat out a series at Minnesota after injury it again, was limited. McCarthy said Lang is “further ahead” of where he’s been at this point in previous weeks.

Outside linebacker Nick Perry and cornerback Jarrett Bush, who missed the Minnesota game, did not participate. Perry went through rehab on Wednesday. “We’ll see how he is tomorrow,” McCarthy said.

New England listed 10 players on its report but all of them practiced.
