McCarthy shortens practices amid injuries

Posted:

 

   GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers played without eight starters last weekend, and coach Mike McCarthy added two more players to the injury list on Monday. 
   The flood of injuries contributed to Green Bay's lackluster 24-15 victory over Jacksonville on Sunday, but McCarthy isn't about to use them as an excuse. He says it's just part of the game. 
   McCarthy's coordinators did acknowledge the injuries do impact planning. For instance, with so many players down, McCarthy cut practices short on Wednesday and Thursday. Offensive coordinator Tom Clements estimated the team lost roughly 15 percent of its regular practice snaps. 
   Green Bay faces Arizona next Sunday.
