"Anytime you see your quarterback getting hit, you don't obviously want to see that," Sitton said Friday. "There was nothing I could do about it when I'm sitting there watching it, but you never want to see that, of course."
Sitton hopes he can soon come to the rescue and help shore up Green Bay's pass protection for the stretch run.
"I think it went good," Sitton said. "I feel great. I'm ready to play.
"(But) it's out of my hands now," he added, deferring the final decision to the team doctors. "It's up to them."
Notes: Defensive end Ryan Pickett, who suffered a concussion in the last game and didn't practice this week, was ruled out for Sunday. McCarthy was optimistic earlier in the week that his veteran starter could play against the Chiefs. "Obviously with these type of injuries, you always take the high side of caution," McCarthy said. Inside linebacker A.J. Hawk practiced on a full-time basis this week and is expected to return to the starting lineup after missing the last two games with a calf injury. ... Linebacker Desmond Bishop (calf), the team's other starter on the inside, will miss a third straight game. Rookie D.J. Smith is likely to make another start with Bishop out.
