Lacy, Finley, Burnett Look Ready to Go Sunday, Matthews Limited

The Packers look like they will have three important players back for Sunday's game vs. the Lions, while others remain in question
Positive news has eluded the Packers on the injury front during their 1-2 start to the season, but Wednesday brought a different vibe after the team returned from its bye week.

RB Eddie Lacy (concussion), TE Jermichael Finley (concussion), and S Morgan Burnett (hamstring) were all full participants in practice on Wednesday, and barring any potential setbacks, look like they could be ready to go for Green Bay's first divisional contest Sunday at home against Detroit.

FB John Kuhn and CB Jarrett Bush also were back from hamstring injuries.  OLB Clay Matthews (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday and his status is unclear for Sunday.

Meanwhile, Casey Hayward (hamstring) and James Starks (knee) were ruled out.  Starks could need a couple of weeks according to McCarthy.

"I think Clay is getting better," McCarthy said Wednesday.  "Hopeful he'll do more tomorrow."

McCarthy grew tired of the amount of injury questions he faced.

"I spent too much time today talking to Dr. McKenzie and now I have and now I have to come in here and listen to this stuff," McCarthy said to reporters.  "I'm worn out.  We're going to stay healthy, everybody is going to play the whole game. Line up with 46 and walk off with 46."
