GREEN BAY–Coach Mike McCarthy’s review of Letroy Guion’s first practice should help ease concerns about the nose tackle position.
Guion participated in his first training camp pratice on the next-to-last practice of camp. He came to camp with a hamstring injury. His return is on the heels of an arm injury that has ended starting nose tackle B.J. Raji’s season.
“I thought he looked explosive. I really like what I saw from Letroy. He got off to a good start. We limited his reps. I thought he had quality reps today,” McCarthy said.
“I think we improved every day,” McCarthy added when asked for a critique of training camp. “The growth was continuous. The installation phase was excellent. Our practice structure was better. A lot of good things came out of training camp.”
Rookie center Corey Linsley is also a player of intense interest these days, as he replaces injured JC Tretter. McCarthy was asked if he would give extra playing time to the No. 1 offense on Thursday, to help familiarize it to Linsley.
“To go out there and totally overdo reps because of one guy, I’m not going to do that. If you have to do that, you’ve got the wrong guy,” McCarthy said.
