140801-abbrederis-300GREEN BAY–Rookie Jared Abbrederis and Corey Linsley are being evaluated for knee and shoulder injuries respectively.

“Jared has a knee and Corey has a shoulder,” Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said following Friday morning’s practice.

The media’s particular concern was for Abbrederis.

“I haven’t talked to the medical staff. Right now he has a knee. He completed practice yesterday. I’ll have more information later,” McCarthy added.

Rookie tight end Colt Lyerla enjoyed his best practice of training camp. He caught two short touchdown passes in red-zone and goal-line drills respectively.

When asked if missing most of last season has left Lyerla to start slowly, McCarthy said: “I’d say yes. I think that’s fair. He’s been away from it for a while. He’s a young guy that needs reps.”

Packers.com will provide a full practice report following locker room interviews.
