Linebacker A.J. Hawk participated in individual drills during the portion of practice open to the media this morning inside The Don Hutson Center.

Hawk was wearing shoulder pads and his helmet for the first time since he strained a muscle in his chest in the exhibition opener on Aug. 11, but his participation appeared to be limited. As usual, the media was not allowed to watch team drills.

Meanwhile, cornerback Charles Woodson, who was not on Wednesday's injury report, did not practice. Woodson missed time late in training camp with a knee bruise, but he had practiced on Monday and Tuesday.

Also out were: left tackle Chad Clifton (knees/chest), center Scott Wells (back) and receiver James Jones (knee).

Returning to practice were: running back Ryan Grant (hamstring), end Jeremy Thompson (groin), linebacker Tracy White (ankle), end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (knee) and safety Charlie Peprah (hamstring).

* In a conference call with Wisconsin reporters, Vikings coach Brad Childress declined to discuss the health of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson. Childress had joked earlier in the week Jackson, who has a knee injury, looked like he had a wooden leg. "He looks like he's got a prosthetic now," Childress said.

Ahhh... so I hear by challenge the mighty TJ to a one legged duel. :lol:

Good to see Hawk back in limited action.. I have a feeling he is going to green light it for Monday night.

Hopefully Hawk can play. Of course this might just be a ploy to make the Vikings THINK he will be playing.

I hope Hawk can play also. What is the deal with Grant has he practiced more than five days this camp?

They're just being safe with grant. They've said this about 100 times. They're keeping him fresh for the opener, and trying to avoid injuring they're new highly paid franchise back. =)

I wonder how 93z performs in an ass-kicking contest?
If, as I suspect, he holds his own, let's fund him for his trip amongst the Purple-priders. Now THAT would crush any bets with those "gentlemen", as regards the changing of sigs, etc. dependent upon a Pack vs. Vikes win.

Hmm...is Woodson's just a one day deal? Seems odd that he is just out, maybe just resting up.

Hawk NEEDS to play. I really hope he does.

Yea, we really need Hawk for this first game to combat AP's running ability.

I'd bet a lot of money on Hawk playing in this game.

LOL> Of course they are. He'll be fresh alright. Considering he didn't attend training camp, missed every preseason game, and has been to about five or six practices total... you bet he'll be fresh. And rusty. ;)

Woodson sits out many of the mid-week practices, especially Wednedays. Since we play on Monday this week, today is basically a Wednesday.

Hopefully he can knock the rust off quick.

Hawk, who has been sidelined three weeks with a chest muscle strain, took part in a limited portion of practice inside the Don Hutson Center, according to coach Mike McCarthy. During the segment open to reporters, Hawk didn't do much but McCarthy said he was allowed to bang around without any restrictions.

"He was in the middle of it," McCarthy said.

Hawk injured himself in the exhibition opener tackling Cincinnati tight end Ben Utecht and had been held out of any contact until his return Thursday. Over the past week or so, Hawk has been pushing hard to get cleared to return, but the medical staff played it safe and waited until it was sure he was ready.

McCarthy did not speculate on whether Hawk would be ready for the Vikings and Hawk was not available for comment after practice. But all indications are that he has made a lot of progress.

"We knew that A.J. was going to rehab at a rapid pace, and in his mind he feels he has been ready for quite some time," McCarthy said. "As far as movement and so forth, I think he is really past all of those stages, whether it's pushing, reaching, pulling. It's just a matter of Pat McKenzie, our doctor, clearing him to play."

The Packers do not have to submit an injury report listing Hawk's chances of playing until Saturday. They only have to report whether he practices until then.

During Hawk's absence, backup strong-side linebacker Brandon Chillar has been playing on the weak side. He would start if Hawk was unable to play. Hawk plays in the team's nickel package as well as in the base defense.


Up and down
The in-again out-again status of center Scott Wells continues to leave the offensive line up in the air.

Wells returned to practice after a two-week absence Monday, but then had a recurrence of the side injury that has bothered him most of camp. The Packers did more tests on Wells to see if they could pinpoint the problem and are hoping to have the answer.

McCarthy said Wells could be back in time for the opener, but he's not sure. Wells did not practice Thursday.

"They feel they may have a handle on it," McCarthy said. "Scott is going to get some treatment and it could be one day or it could be a couple of weeks (that he's out). I talked to him right before practice. He was very encouraged with his visit, and we'll see how he feels in the morning."

The Packers listed 12 players on their injury report, but the only ones who did not practice were wide receiver James Jones (knee), guard Josh Sitton (knee), cornerback Charles Woodson (rest) and Wells. End Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (knee) and running back Ryan Grant (hamstring) were not limited at all.
