Packers DE Jarius Wynn has battled a mild case of Bell's Palsy for the past two weeks.

Bell's Palsy causes paralysis or weakness in one side of the face, coming on suddenly before correcting itself in a matter of weeks. Thanks to an antibiotic, a light steroid, and a dark visor on his helmet, Wynn is back to full participation in practice this week.

Packers signed sixth-round DE Jarius Wynn to a four-year contract.

Wynn has the size to make it as a 3-4 end, but he may lack the speed off the edge to generate any kind of a pass rush. He never developed as a playmaker at Georgia despite receiving plenty of hype.
