Tuesday practice report

Posted by Mike Spofford on August 24, 2010 – 2:45 pm

The Packers practiced in full pads in their final public workout before Thursday night’s preseason game against Indianapolis on ESPN.

The ESPN crew was on the sidelines observing practice. Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski, Jon Gruden and Michele Tafoya, along with several members of the production crew, were on hand.

T/G Bryan Bulaga was back at practice after dropping out Monday night with a hip flexor. As usual, he rotated at LG with Daryn Colledge on the No. 1 line and also took snaps at LT with the 2’s.

LB Alex Joseph (quad) also returned to practice and LB A.J. Hawk (ankle) was back to full duty after a trial return on Monday. LB Brad Jones (shoulder) went through a pre-practice routine but then did not continue. Head Coach Mike McCarthy said he wasn’t quite ready to practice, but Jones hasn’t been ruled out of Thursday’s game.

Remaining out were RB Kregg Lumpkin (hamstring), RB Quinn Porter (ankle), LB Clay Matthews (hamstring), DE Cullen Jenkins (calf) and T/G Allen Barbre (lower back). Barbre’s injury occurred in Saturday’s game in Seattle. The three PUP players — S Atari Bigby (ankle), CB Al Harris (knee) and RB James Starks (hamstring) also remained out. WR Greg Jennings dropped out of practice early due to lower back spasms.

McCarthy said Jenkins was a “long shot” to play in Thursday’s game.

During 7-on-7 work, among the standout plays, S Morgan Burnett had an INT, TE Spencer Havner had a TD catch, CB Pat Lee had a nice pass break-up in the corner of the end zone on a ball WR Chastin West tried to haul in, and CB Charles Woodson had a near-INT.

In a team (11-on-11) red zone period, S Will Blackmon intercepted an Aaron Rodgers pass in the end zone intended for WR James Jones. Woodson got his hands on a ball, but the deflection was still caught by TE Andrew Quarless. And CB Jarrett Bush nearly had an INT on a ball that deflected off FB Quinn Johnson.

K Mason Crosby went 6-for-7 in a FG period. He was good from 28, 30, 33, 36, 40 and 45 yards. His only miss was wide right from 43 when the snap looked high.

In the final team period, WRs James Jones and Jordy Nelson both had nice grabs for TDs. FB John Kuhn made an impressive sliding catch on a go route along the sideline with LB Brady Poppinga in tight coverage. As both players went to the ground, Poppinga took a spike to the shin and sat out the rest of practice, icing his leg.

McCarthy said the starters will play the first half of Thursday’s game against the Colts, and then he will assess where the team is at before deciding if they will play into the third quarter at all.

McCarthy’s press conference transcript is here. Today’s feature story and Training Camp Report will be posted later.
