GREEN BAY–Julius Peppers worked at both the left and right outside linebackers positions in practice at Ray Nitschke Field on Thursday. Peppers, signed in free agency in March, wore No. 56 and began practice as Nick Perry’s apparent replacement at left outside linebacker.
Perry was present at practice but did not participate, nor did starting right outside linebacker Clay Matthews. Mike Neal was Matthews’ apparent replacement.
Practice was open to the public and fans enjoyed a warm and sunny day. They cheered nearly every catch, most enthusiastically a reception by rookie tight end Colt Lyerla.
Micah Hyde was at safety along with Morgan Burnett in the No. 1 defensive backfield. Bryan Bulaga, who missed all of last season due to a knee injury, lined up at right tackle and David Bakhtiari remained at left tackle. Bakhtiari replaced Bulaga at left tackle last season. JC Tretter, a fourth-round draft pick in 2013, was the center.
