|Nick Perry thought it would be a "beautiful" day when the Green Bay Packers finally activated him from the physically unable to perform list and allowed him to start practicing. As it turned out Darrell Green Jersey , Sunday was even better than that for the Packers outside linebacker.
"Like my dad says, 'It's an exquisite day,'" Perry said after coming off the PUP list in time to take part in Sunday's closed practice. "I'm excited just to be out there and just be back with the team and put my best foot forward moving into the season."
Perry missed the entire offseason program after ankle surgery following last season, and he has battled injuries throughout his career. The Packers have two preseason games remaining 鈥?Friday at Oakland and Aug. 30 at Kansas City 鈥?but it's unclear whether Perry will play in either. The Packers practice Monday and Tuesday and will have a light practice Thursday before departing for Oakland.
"I would love to play Friday. That's not my call, though," Perry said. "I would love to play just to have an opportunity to go out there and get some real game reps down. But it's only a couple days of practice this week. I'm just going to see how I feel moving from a day-to-day basis on whether or not I can take on that load. (The Raiders') field isn't as great, either. So that might be another reason why they might say, 'Hey, just take it easy Womens Roquan Smith Jersey , wait for next week.'"
Perry said his ankle bothered him throughout last season, when he registered only seven sacks in the first year of a five-year, $59 million deal that included an $18 million guaranteed signing bonus and came after an 11-sack season in 2016.
He also dealt with a broken hand, which forced him to wear a club cast, and a shoulder injury while playing in only 12 of 16 games. Perry's ankle became enough of an issue late in the season that he left the team's must-win game at Carolina because of it.
Perry has no concerns about being ready for the team's Sept. 9 regular-season opener against Chicago, and that he won't have any trouble catching up in the Packers' new defensive system, which has been installed by new coordinator Mike Pettine.
"We're at a point where I don't have a choice," Perry said. "I think I'll be fine, ultimately. My body is in good shape to handle a (work) load like that. So it's just a matter of me getting into practice and fully getting a whole practice under my belt and continue to stack those days.
"I think everything else will take care of itself."
The New Orleans Pelicans are fighting for their playoff lives. The Golden State Warriors just want to get back to full strength and defend their championship. ”Tonight we’re playing a team that desperately needs to win Andrew Shaw Jersey ,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. ”You can tell the teams around the league that have to win. They’re getting after it. They’re playing for their season. Our season begins next week.”
Anthony Davis outdueled Kevin Durant down the stretch on the way to 34 points, and the Pelicans snapped a 10-game losing streak to Golden State with a 126-120 win over the Warriors on Saturday night.
Durant scored 19 of his 41 points in the third quarter to go with 10 rebounds and five assists. He made big 3-pointers with 6:39 remaining and at the 4:52 mark that got Golden State to 112-111, but the Pelicans kept answering.
The NBA Finals MVP made things more difficult after halftime on Davis, who also had 12 rebounds for the Pelicans while having his way with the Warriors’ defense from the start.
The Pelicans beat the Warriors for the first time since April 7, 2015, in New Orleans, and at Oracle Arena for the first time since April 24, 2012.
”I just thought we played about as perfect as you have to play to beat them,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. ”They’re just such a great team. They just keep coming at you. We were never comfortable.”
Durant also committed a costly late turnover that led to E’Twaun Moore’s pullup jumper with 23.5 seconds left. KD lost the ball for another key steal less than a minute earlier but immediately got a rebound on the other end that led to Andre Iguodala’s dunk on the other end to get Golden State to 121-119 with 1:01 left.
Quinn Cook http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/roquan-smith-jersey , who has been an admirable fill-in for the injured Stephen Curry after his promotion from the G League, added 21 points with five 3-pointers in the Warriors’ final regular-season home game.
This was primarily the KD and Davis show.
Davis shot 13 for 24, while Nikola Mirotic made four quick 3-pointers and six in all on the way to 28 points. Jrue Holiday scored 25 and Rajon Rondo dished out 17 assists.
Durant tied the game on a layup just before halftime but Davis scored again to give him 19 points on 9-for-14 shooting in the first half. New Orleans led 67-65 after sizzling shooting by both teams – 59.6 by the Pelicans to 57.4 for Golden State and seven 3-pointers apiece.
Draymond Green just missed a triple-double for the Warriors, finishing with 11 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. He had seven of Golden State’s 17 turnovers.
Pelicans: New Orleans had 39 assists, Moore adding seven. … G Ian Clark missed his second straight game – this one against his former team – because of a sprained right ankle. … New Orleans has given up 110 or more points in each of the last 11 regular-season meetings vs. the Warriors.
Warriors: Iguodala, who had been uncertain to play with a sore left knee, received a second-quarter technical. … Golden State will go with a center by committee for now, with Kevon Looney earning the start Saturday. … Shaun Livingston was out to rest his sore right knee. The Warriors had won their previous five regular-season home finales. … Golden State dropped to 10-4 in the first game of back-to-backs. … Warriors President and COO Rick Welts was honored for his induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Stephen Curry Nate Schmidt Jersey , dressed and with backpack on, hopped up and down a few times on his tender left knee in the locker room with a big grin alongside athletic trainer Chelsea Lane. They’re going on the quick road trip to Phoenix.
Curry did some light work on the court then iced his injured left knee before the game while munching popcorn at his locker.
He’s still a week from having his sprained knee re-evaluated and Kerr ruled him out for the first round of the playoffs.
”We’ll talk a week from today,” Kerr said. ”There’s nothing to report.”
The Warriors waived forward Omri Casspi after the game. Casspi has been sidelined by an ankle injury and Golden State needed to clear a roster spot in order to make room for Cook to be on the playoff roster.
The Pelicans had a four-day break and dropped from fourth place to eighth in the Western Conference standings.
That’s how wild this final stretch has been and still could be.
”It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen,” Gentry said. ”I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Pelicans: At Clippers on Monday.
Warriors: At Phoenix on Sunday looking for a 15th straight victory vs. the Suns and playing their 14th and last back-to-back.
