News & notes from Day 3

Posted by Mike Spofford on July 28, 2013 – 2:56 pm

For the main news of the day, check out the stories on the defensive line and from Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s post-practice press conference. Here are some other news and notes:

No update: McCarthy didn’t have any further update on the leg injuries that knocked WRs Charles Johnson and Kevin Dorsey out of practice on Saturday. Neither practiced on Sunday. McCarthy did say he’s been told neither injury is serious.

In other injury news, CB Tramon Williams was held out towards the end of practice because his knee was bothering him, McCarthy said.

Strong finish on offense: The offense looked sharp in the no-huddle period that ended practice. QB Aaron Rodgers completed deep crossing routes to WRs Randall Cobb and Ross to get in position to score, and then WR Jarrett Boykin hauled in a high fade in the corner of the end zone, outjumping the solid coverage of CB James Nixon for the TD. That was the final play of practice.

Ups and downs: That final play of practice capped an up-and-down day for Nixon, a holdover from last year’s practice squad. Early in the workout, Nixon muffed a kickoff return. Later, he made a nice play breaking up a slant pass to rookie WR Alex Gillett, and then he made his big splash, intercepting a Rodgers pass intended for rookie WR Tyrone Walker. Had he been able to break up that last pass to Boykin, he would have been heralded as the star of the day, despite the early kickoff fumble.

Better hands: Safety Morgan Burnett, who received a multi-year contract extension prior to the start of camp, said he’s already put his payday behind him and he’s working on improving in his fourth season, particularly with his hands.

“A couple times last year I had my hand on the ball, but it was either a tip or it went through my hands,” he said. “Now I’m getting to where I’m putting myself in the right position to make those plays, and when the ball hits my hand, try to catch it, and make sure I’m good with my technique, and my tackling.”

Familiar face: Former Packers RB Ahman Green is in camp as a coaching intern, working with RB coach Alex Van Pelt.

Active first day: LB Jamari Lattimore missed the first two days of practice with an illness, but he wasted no time getting involved on Sunday. In full pads from the get-go, Lattimore laid a hit on RB Johnathan Franklin that broke up a dumpoff pass in the first team (11-on-11) period of practice. Later, in the half-line drill that pits a portion of the offensive line against a portion of the defense to work on inside runs, Lattimore knocked RB Eddie Lacy to the ground with a big hit from the side.

McCarthy said after practice that Lattimore probably “did too much” for his first day, as he was dealing with cramps toward the end of the workout.

Strong push: LB Nick Perry was best as a bull-rusher as a rookie, and there’s no denying his strength. In a blocking drill between OLBs and TEs, Perry got underneath TE Ryan Taylor’s pads and shoved him backwards, drawing a notable cheer from the Ray Nitschke Field crowd.

Doing it all: Never let it be said LB Clay Matthews isn’t a complete player. Known for his tough run defense and pass rush, Matthews on Sunday dropped well off the line of scrimmage into coverage, read the quarterback and then got a hand on a slant pass to WR Jeremy Ross, tipping it just enough to break it up.

    Really hope Perry Matthews Jones, and Neal stay healthy this year , those 4 guys will go along way toward slowing down the read option QB’s. Also think T Manning is gonna surprise some people this year and my mid season will be playing more snaps than Hawk. IMHO

    The sounds of summer camp are great! A lot aggressive play on the defense with young players trying to impress the coaches. The key will be when they into a game than the true quality players will come out.
    Go Pack Go

    I reckon this D will turn some heads this year and aggressively pull some off! The days of the Pack D being known around the league as “soft” are going to disappear from the knowledge banks of the scouts around the NFL. I reckon this D is a proud group. I miss Wisconsin, especially in Football Season! Go PACK!!!

    I attended practice, and Nick Perry was by far the standout on Day 3. Also Mike Daniels shown some aggressiveness and gave the defense a much needed edge.

    SIX of the Packers starting front seven are FIRST ROUND DRAFT CHOICES. IF they can stay healthy, I really feel sorry for opposing teams.

    Any way to get more detailed captions on your otherwise great photo galleries?
    Thanks!

    I keep hearing about how the defense needs to improve but the offense needs work as well. They need to cut down the number of sacks and do a better job running the ball.With the realignment of the O-line there is bound to be a learning curve.Let us just hope it does not take to long or cost them any games.
