Worthy savors the moment

Posted by Mike Spofford on August 3, 2012 – 11:34 pm

Rookie DL Jerel Worthy, drafted in the second round from Michigan State, said Friday night that when he headed out onto Lambeau Field for the Family Night scrimmage, it was his first time heading down the tunnel to the field. He had intentionally not done so previously so he could savor the moment.

“I tried to save it for as long as possible, and I kind of got a little emotional being out there, like my dream is finally coming true,” Worthy said. “I’m just excited to be here.”

Worthy made one notable play in the scrimmage, stuffing RB Du’ane Bennett for a 5-yard loss when he charged across the line of scrimmage unblocked. The play helped the No. 1 defense hold the No. 2 offense to a field goal on what had been a promising drive.

“My guard pulled, and I got a good jump on the ball,” Worthy said of the play, which was typical of the disruptive plays he made in college. “As soon as he pulled and vacated my area, I just came off the back side and came wide open. Hopefully I can get as many plays like that as possible.”
