Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton: 'I definitely don't like the turf'

Thursday November 6th, 2014

Green Bay Packers starting offensive guard Josh Sitton suffered a toe injury in the team's Oct. 26 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

The game was played at the Superdome, one of multiple venues that has a turf surface instead of grass. Sitton later said he doesn't like playing on turf. From The Green Bay Press-Gazette:

"Playing on turf ain't no fun," Sitton said. "I definitely don't like the turf. It beats your body up. I noticed pretty much every time I play on turf, I do something (painful). So it's no Bueno."

Sitton returned to the game after suffering the injury, which he said was a torn ligament. He also said he thinks he can play in Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears despite not participating in practice on Wednesday.

T.J. Lang, the Packers' other starting offensive guard, also missed practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury suffered against the Saints.

The Packers are 5-3 and in second place in the NFC North.
