Report: House and Lowry back at practice

According to a report by Green Bay Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky, both Davon House and Dean Lowry were back at practice Tuesday participating in drills.

House has been held out of practice for weeks due to a lingering hamstring injury. The Packers didn’t want to push House back into action too early with the regular season looming.

House is expect to help sure up the Packers secondary this season after signing him to a one-year contract. House spent the last two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Lowry went down with a knee injury about a week ago at practice. At first, the Packers thought it could be a serious knee injury, but he ended up avoiding anything too serious.

The second year player out of Northwestern  was expected to have more of a role this season on the Packers defensive line.

The Packers will play it safe with both House and Lowry for the rest of practice and preseason games in hopes to get them back 100% healthy for the start of the regular season.

Packers get key players back, others still remain out

The Green Bay Packers didn’t start their practice yesterday till the afternoon, but saw lots of names return to the practice field.

Damarious Randall and Malachi Dupre both returned to the field yesterday, after both suffered concussions on questionable hits in the first preseason game against the Eagles.

Ty Montgomery also was back at practice after suffering a lower body soft tissue injury. He was listed as a limited participant. Montgomery hopes to get some playing time this Saturday against the Denver Broncos.

The Packers also got Wide receiver Colby Pearson and Tight end Cody Peck back at practice.

Jayrone Elliott was the lone Packer to come down with an injury in yesterday’s practice. The Packers were depending on the fourth year player out of Toledo to have more of an impact at outside linebacker this season.

Players still being held out of practice were Davon House (hamstring), Jermaine Whitehead (hip), Demetri Goodson (knee), William Stanback (hamstring), Derrick Mathews (concussion), Jordan Tripp (Concussion), and Don Barclay (Ankle).

Dean Lowry, Vince Biegel, and Montravius Adams were also out of practice and are all likely to miss the rest of training camp and potentially the season opener.

Report: Lowry’s knee injury not as bad as first thought

Green Bay Packers defensive end Dean Lowry went down with a knee injury in Saturday’s preseason game against the Washington Redskins. The Packers initially believed that this could be a major knee injury.

A report from Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky cited that Lowry avoided a serious knee injury. His test results showed that there was no major damage to his knee and that the injury should be considered short-term.

Lowry, a second year player out of Northwestern, was a fourth round pick by the Packers last season. The Packers were expecting big things from Lowry this season after showing flashes last season as a rookie.

The team enters this season with a bit of a lack of depth on the defensive line, and will be relying on young unproven players.

Lowry appeared in 15 games for the Packers and finished with two sacks in limited snaps last season.
