Training camp look in: Practice moment dramatic tease

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 8, 2013 – 9:37 am

GREEN BAY–There was drama in the air when Mason Crosby lined up a 52-yard field goal attempt in practice on Thursday morning. It would turn out to be a fake field goal play, but the tease underscored the drama Crosby might encounter on Friday night in the Packers’ preseason opener against visiting Arizona.

Crosby is facing stiff competition to retain the job he’s held since 2007. He needs a strong performance against the Cardinals, on the heels of a 3-for-8 effort on Family Night last Saturday, about which Head Coach Mike McCarthy said “that’s not going to cut it.”

The kicking competition between Crosby and challenger Giorgio Tavecchio is likely to be one of the feature attractions of Friday’s game at Lambeau Field. Quarterback B.J. Coleman will also be under the microscope following a two-interception performance on Family Night.

Coleman and the No. 3 offense got extended work in Thursday’s practice. That’ll likely be the case on Friday, too.

Packers.com will provide a full report following practice.
