A few notes from Wednesday’s minicamp practice, which for the second straight day was held inside the Don Hutson Center due to wet weather.
–LB Brad Jones did not practice, which moved LB Jamari Lattimore up to the No. 1 defense, paired alongside A.J. Hawk.
–WR Charles Johnson did not practice after practicing on Tuesday.
–Players sitting out both days of practices this week included WR Jarrett Boykin, WR Kevin Dorsey, RB DuJuan Harris, S Sean Richardson, CB Davon House, LB Dezman Moses, LB Desmond Bishop, T JC Tretter, T Derek Sherrod, DT Ryan Pickett, DE Josh Boyd and DE Jerel Worthy.
–QB Aaron Rodgers was really on his game during an extended red-zone period. In one series of plays, he hit TE Jermichael Finley over the middle near the goal line as Finley slightly collided with S David Fulton, connected on a lob pass to TE D.J. Williams near the end-zone sideline, and then scrambled a little to his left before firing a 25-yard strike off his back foot to WR Randall Cobb at the front pylon.
–The defense nearly stopped Rodgers’ hot streak moments later when Hawk deflected a pass into the end zone intended for WR Jeremy Ross on a crossing route. CB Sam Shields dove to try for the interception off the deflection, but the ball barely grazed the ground as Shields’ corraled it and the pass was ruled incomplete, much to the chagrin of the defensive players.
