Nick Perry: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Perry sat out all the Packers' offseason activities while recovering from both knee and foot injuries, but he was able to return to action Thursday. The Packers will be hoping that Perry can improve his play after two injury-riddled seasons, but he will almost certainly open the season in a part-time role behind starting outside linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Perry will line up as a starter at outside linebacker opposite Clay Matthews. He played in six games last season, before being placed on injured reserve with wrist and knee injuries. He could provide a strong pass-rushing presence with attention focused on Matthews.
The 2012 first round draft pick is expected to start at outside linebacker opposite Clay Matthews. In 2011, the Packers' defense struggled, and much of that blame fell on the shoulders of those playing the outside linebacker role that Perry is stepping into. With many defenses likely to key in on Matthews, Perry should have plenty of opportunities to make his mark as a force in the pass rush.
