Overflow crowd packs Packers’ first night practice

Posted by packers.com on August 2, 2013 – 8:18 pm

On a beautiful summer evening in front of an overflow crowd at Ray Nitschke Field, the Packers began their first of two night practices of the 2013 training camp.

Fans packed the bleachers and were lined up multiple folks deep behind each end zone fence to watch the Packers prepare for Saturday’s Family Night Scrimmage.

The team’s injury list got a little longer, as WR Jordy Nelson, TE Andrew Quarless and LB Jamari Lattimore were sitting out. Returning to practice after missing a few days was LB Nate Palmer (shoulder).

In a last-play-of-the-game scenario from just inside the 20-yard line, QB B.J. Coleman scrambled to his right and found WR James Jones for a TD. QB Graham Harrell’s desperation pass into heavy traffic, however, was picked off by CB Loyce Means, who was one of the standouts in Thursday’s practice.

Packers.com will have a full report on practice, including comments from Coach Mike McCarthy, later tonight.

    I’m really liking Loyce Means. Have seen his name brought up a lot by the Packers.com crew. Running a 4.4 40 is a good attribute for a CB, but I haven’t seen how well he can flip his hips yet. Anyone see how he’s handling the DB core skills?
