Ryan Wood USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin Published 9:52 p.m. UTC Jul 27, 2018 GREEN BAY – Nick Perry is confident he’ll be ready to play by the Green Bay Packers' opening game against the Chicago Bears, but he’d like to take some preseason snaps first. The veteran outside linebacker was one of two players to start training camp on the physically unable to perform list, joining right tackle Bryan Bulaga. Perry, who had ankle surgery after last season, said he feels ready to practice now and is just waiting for doctors to clear him. “They're putting a plan together to make sure that I will be ready for Game 1,” Perry said Friday. Entering his seventh season, Perry is at a stage in his career where he wouldn’t need as much physical preparation to be ready for September. But with a new defensive coordinator, Perry has much more to learn than recent years.

So away we go. Can you write an O-line improvement write up for the perspective of other fanbases? I feel like the main thing I hear analyst call us out for is past Oline issues but not a single time have I seen a legitimate write up that includes the positive changes we made this offseason. — Drake Waterston (@drake_waterston) July 23, 2018 Most Read Sports StoriesRanking the Seahawks’ roster: These are the 10 most-important players for 2018Pac-12 preseason picks: Can UW Huskies reclaim conference crown?Ranking the Seahawks’ roster: Who stands just outside the top 10 on our list?Mariners Sunday mailbag: How to work around a lack of prospects?
