Packers second-year safety Morgan Burnett broke his right hand in practice Thursday and didn’t participate in Friday’s workout.
However, he is listed as probable and expects to play Sunday against the Rams, yet he was fitted for a cast that could hinder his ability to defend passes.
“It’s no biggie,” said Burnett, who hit the hand on a shoulder pad in a blitz drill. “It could happen to anybody, at any time.”
Burnett is tied for the team lead with three interceptions.
“He clubbed (the hand) today,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “Any time you have a broken bone in your hand, there’s things you have to look at, but he feels and (team) doctor (Pat) McKenzie feels that he can potentially play with this.”
