The Packers have increased concerns on the defensive side of the football after three players were limited in their practice availability Thursday.
Linebacker Nick Perry has had his stinger flare up in practice.
Morgan Burnett and Jarrett Bush now both have hamstring issues after Bush "pulled up today in practice," according to Packers coach Mike McCarthy.
It was bad news for Bush, but good for Burnett.
"Morgan's getting better. He was able to do a little more than he expected," said McCarthy, who expounded upon Burnett as the communication center of the Packers' defense.
That skill and communication was missing last Sunday, and the Packers paid for it - 412 passing yards and 34 points given up to the 49ers.
"There's a reason why he's back there. He's a very good player."
There was no official word yet on their status for Sunday's game against Washington.
