    The Packers took the practice field this afternoon, and we have some more good tidings to bring on the injury front. 51 of the 53 players on the active roster practiced today, a far cry from the days in training camp when a quarter of the roster couldn't take the field.

    While B.J. Raji wasn't a full participant in practice today, the fact that he's practicing at all is obviously good news for the Packers' defense. Furthermore, Mike McCarthy said in his press conference today that Raji "looked good", and it sounds like both Raji and fellow defensive lineman Ryan Pickett will not be limited for Sunday's game against the 49ers. They'll be needed on the line against the 49ers' strong rushing attack, which likely will force the Packers to play more snaps out of of their base 3-4 defense and fewer in the nickel than they usually would against other opponents.
