Tavecchio perfect on his kicks in practice

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 12, 2013 – 12:57 pm

GREEN BAY–Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy promised an increase this week in the competition for the kicking job, and it began with an eight-kick contest between incumbent Mason Crosby and challenger Giorgio Tavecchio on Monday.

Kicking in a two-round bout from 36, 42, 46 and 53 yards, Tavecchio was perfect on his eight kicks, whereas Crosby’s lone miss was from 46, wide to the left.

There were no field goal attempts in Friday night’s 17-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in the preseason opener at Lambeau Field. McCarthy vowed in his postgame press conference to provide some kicking drama in this week’s practices.

Monday’s practice was closed to the public. The remaining practices this week will be open to the public. The Packers play in St. Louis on Saturday in Week 2 of the preseason.

In other news on Monday, running back DuJuan Harris practiced for the first time in this training camp. Rookie running back Eddie Lacy remained an observer as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Right guard T.J. Lang was out; he was replaced by Don Barclay, who was praised for his performance at right tackle on Friday. Wide receiver Randall Cobb was a full participant on Monday. First-round draft pick Datone Jones was sidelined by an ankle sprain.

Packers.com will provide full details from Monday’s practice.
