Training camp look in: James Jones makes big play

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on July 31, 2013 – 10:18 am

GREEN BAY–Rookie cornerback Micah Hyde has been one of the stars of the first week of training camp, but not when he’s been covering veteran wide receiver James Jones.

Jones beat Hyde for a touchdown to end the first day of practice, and he beat Hyde on a double move along the right sideline in Wednesday morning’s practice, pulling in a pefectly thrown deep pass from Graham Harrell as Hyde trailed the play by five yards. It was one of a handful of highlight plays in the team-drills portion of practice.

Rookie running backs Johnathan Franklin and Angelo Pease drew cheers from fans who packed the stands at Ray Nitschke Field, as Franklin burst through a hole on the left side of the line and into the clear, and Pease did the same on the right side of the line toward the end of the period.

Veteran linebacker A.J. Hawk read quarterback B.J. Coleman’s eyes, as Hawk stepped in front of a quick-slant pass to make what would’ve likely resulted in a pick-six interception.

The Packers continue to include a healthy dose of half-line running drills in their practice regimen, and practice began again with the defense working in a half-speed drill against a scout-team, read-option offense.

Packers.com will provide a full report following practice.
