NFC North Round-Up: Nick Perry, Mikel Leshoure, Alshon Jeffery

You know who’s having a worse Monday than you? Jim Furyk. Duck hook! Here are some NFC North links that have nothing to do with Jim Furyk or his U.S. Open choke.

In Packerland, Andrew Quarless will start camp on the PUP list. Also from the same link, the Packers are expected to keep six receivers on the roster, and right now Diondre Borel is the favorite to lock down the sixth slot over Tori Gurley… Pro Football Weekly says Nick Perry has already established himself as the starting OLB opposite Clay Matthews.

In Detroit…Erik Coleman could win a starting safety spot over Amari Spievey. Chris McCosky of the Detroit News predicts Mikel Leshoure will become the team’s featured back after he returns from his two game suspension, pushing Jahvid Best into the “Reggie Bush role.”

And the Bears…Alshon Jeffery missed most of minicamp with a lower-leg injury. In other minicamp news, rookie Shea McClellin got few snaps with the first team.
