Training camp look in: Morgan Burnett out; Sean Richardson stars

140731-richardson-300GREEN BAY–Maybe it was the arrival of NFL Referee Ed Hochuli, or maybe it was the warm weather. Whatever it was, the Packers were on top of their game in Thursday morning’s practice. The energy was greater. The hitting was harder. The pace was faster.

With starting safety Morgan Burnett sidelined by an ankle injury, Sean Richardson leaped into the spotlight. In the first team period, he intercepted a pass that was deflected by cornerback Davon House. Later in practice, he belted rookie tight end Richard Rodgers to the ground and then followed with a pop on undrafted rookie tight end Justin Petrillo following a catch. Richardson was all over the field in announcing his entry into the competition at safety.

Half-line drills returned, and they were more spirited and physical than Monday’s first edition of training camp. Rookie linebacker Carl Bradford and nose tackle B.J. Raji were headline thumpers in a drill that produced far more  thumps and pops than Monday’s had.

Fans were into the action, offering a big cheer for an Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson deep-ball connection. Nelson fought off — or pushed off — cornerback Casey Hayward to make the catch.

Running back Eddie Lacy continues to run wild in this camp. No one can knock him off course, let alone bring him down.

A team period that was to last 15 minutes was halted with about two minutes remaining, which would indicate the pace of play was ahead of schedule.

Linebacker Nick Perry joined practice for the first time since last season.

Packers.com will provide a report from Coach Mike McCarthy’s press conference.
