News now! Rodgers to Nelson highlight of morning practice

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 4, 2015 – 9:58 am

blog-header-imageGREEN BAY — First-round draft pick Damarious Randall got an up-close-and-personal look at one of the most explosive passing combinations in the league. In a team-run/play-action-pass drill, quarterback Aaron Rodgers faked a handoff, dropped back into the pocket and lofted a perfect deep pass that fell softly into the hands of wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who had beaten Randall by two steps.

The familiar sight of Rodgers and Nelson hooking up for a touchdown drew the loudest cheer of Tuesday’s practice. Earlier, a kickoff-return/kickoff-coverage drill created the loudest thud of the morning. It left linebacker Josh Francis helmetless.

Rookie Ty Montgomery did the bulk of the kickoff-return work, and the spirited special teams drill further accentuated Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s emphasis on improved play by Packers special teams this season.

Packers.com will update details of the morning practice with McCarthy’s comments in his post-practice press conference.

News now! Week will end with scheme installed

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 3, 2015 – 11:21 am

blog-header-imageGREEN BAY — This is one of the most important weeks of training camp, in that it features five days of padded practices including the week-ending Family Night.

“Your padded practices are at the highest priority. We have four more padded practices this week. When we walk off the field Saturday after Family Night, we’ll have all of our scheme in,” Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said following a Monday practice that featured red-zone work.

“The tempo has been good, not great. The emphasis was red zone. Things happen faster down there. I thought the offense did some really good things. It takes some time,” McCarthy said.

Rookie cornerback Quinten Rollins practiced for the first time in this training camp, after missing the first three days of practice due to hamstring tenderness.

Linebacker Clay Matthews didn’t practice on Monday.

“He had some knee soreness,” McCarthy said.

News now! Eddie Lacy earns cheers on day for running game

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 3, 2015 – 10:04 am

blog-header-imageGREEN BAY — The running game was the focus of Monday’s practice at Packers training camp, and it was star running back Eddie Lacy that earned the cheers.

Lacy exploded through a hole on the right side of the line in a team drill, and then did the same thing behind Lane Taylor’s block in the red-zone period. The two periods were preceded by a spirited one-on-one, run-blocking drill that featured double-team blocks.

In the red-zone period, rookie quarterback Brett Hundley got his biggest cheer of camp to date when he found wide receiver Jeff Janis for a touchdown against cornerback Sam Shields.

Packers.com will update details of practice with comments from Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s post-practice press conference.

News now! Another weapon at wide receiver?

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 1, 2015 – 11:29 am

blog-header-imageGREEN BAY — Is it possible the Packers have added, yet, another weapon to their receiving arsenal?

Third-round draft pick Ty Montgomery was the star of the first day of full-pads practices.

“Ty’s a playmaker. It was good to see him back there. He’s fit in nicely on offense, made a few plays. He’s off to a good start,” Coach Mike McCarthy said of the rookie, who took a lot of reps as kickoff returner during special teams practice, and then distinguished himself as a receiver later in Saturday’s practice.

“I thought we got off to a solid start. We did more team work. It’s the best teaching you can have, competing against each other,” McCarthy said.

News now! Half-lines return in first full-pads practice

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 1, 2015 – 9:45 am

blog-header-imageGREEN BAY — An overflow crowd filled every seat in Nitschke Field and spilled out into the streets to watch the Packers in their first full-pads practice of training camp.

Saturday morning’s practice, the third of camp, featured another cloudless sky and the return of the ever-popular half-line drills that pit offensive and defensive linemen in an inside-run exercise. The drill was punctuated by two rookies, fullback Aaron Ripkowski and linebacker Jake Ryan. They authored the loudest thump of the drill when they met in the hole.

Tight end Andrew Quarless, who missed the first two practices of training camp to attend to a personal issue, was present and in uniform today.

Packers.com will provide an update from Mike McCarthy’s post-practice press conference.

News now! Packers ready to put on the pads

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on July 31, 2015 – 11:16 am

blog-header-imageGREEN BAY — The pads go on tomorrow, and in a game dedicated to player safety and a limited number of full-contact practices, Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy says there is still in place in football for guys who want to hit.

“I think players look different in pads. They play different. It’s definitely a turning point; no doubt about it. Padded practices are the closest you can get to games,” McCarthy said following Friday’s practice, the second of training camp. The first two practices have been in light gear.

McCarthy said wide receiver Jared Abbrederis “suffered a concussion (on Thursday). He’s going through the protocol.”

Saturday’s practice may or may not signal the start of half-line drills, the most popular contact drill of training camp.

“We’ll do half-line in training camp. It’s an inside-run period. I really never liked nine on seven; you have unblocked players on defense. You want to lower risk. Your ability to go half-line is you cut the drill in half,” McCarthy said.

News now! Morgan Burnett makes big plays on second day

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on July 31, 2015 – 10:03 am

blog-header-imageGREEN BAY — Sunny skies and warm temperatures prevailed on the second day of training camp, and safety Morgan Burnett was the hot player. He intercepted a Brett Hundley pass in a pass-under-pressure drill, and then followed later in practice with an interception of Aaron Rodgers.

Wide receiver Jared Abbrederis was absent from practice on Friday, a day after being medically evaluated following a hard fall.

Packers.com will update this report following Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s post-practice press conference.

News now! Abbrederis being evaluated following practice fall

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on July 30, 2015 – 11:10 am

blog-header-imageGREEN BAY — Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy was upbeat following his team’s first practice of training camp.

“We definitely got off to a fast start. The tempo was what I was looking for. Getting back to playing football at that speed is good,” McCarthy said.

His concern following the Thursday morning practice was for wide receiver Jared Abbrederis, who sustained an injury midway through practice when cornerback LaDarius Gunter leaped to make an interception of an Aaron Rodgers pass.

“Jared is being evaluated right now. I know he fell pretty hard on that interception,” McCarthy said. He said he didn’t know what the injury is but didn’t think it involved the knee Abbrederis injured in last year’s training camp.

Tight end Andrew Quarless was absent from practice.

“He’s dealing with an extremely difficult family situation and he’s where he needs to be,” McCarthy said of Quarless.

Second-round draft pick Quinten Rollins did not practice.

“It’s a physical matter. We’ve got to get him right, got to get him healthy,” McCarthy said.

News now! Mike McCarthy involved in special teams drills

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on July 30, 2015 – 9:41 am

blog-header-imageGREEN BAY — Mike McCarthy’s emphasis on special teams was on display in the first practice of training camp on Thursday morning.

The Packers head coach was more than an observer during a punt drill. He met briefly with punter Tim Masthay, who’s competing for his job,  moved about the drill and even jogged with the players to a spot on the field where the Packers began practicing kick coverage. Shortly after last season ended, McCarthy announced he would have a greater involvement in special teams in 2015.

Meanwhile, star wide receiver Jordy Nelson and cornerback Casey Hayward participated in Thursday’s practice, after missing spring drills while rehabbing hip and foot injuries.

Undrafted free agent cornerback LaDarius Gunter made a splash in the opening practice when he made a leaping interception of an Aaron Rodgers pass intended for Jared Abbrederis.

Packers.com will update this story with details from McCarthy’s post-practice press conference.

News now! Mike McCarthy wants to ‘hit it and get it’

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on July 29, 2015 – 10:19 am

mccarthy-blogGREEN BAY — Mike McCarthy said his team is coming off a strong spring season and wants to come out of the blocks fast for the start of training camp on Thursday.

“I want to hit it and get it. We have some things we feel we need to highlight, different than in the past. I’m confident that through the grinds of training camp we’ll form an excellent football team,” McCarthy told reporters at the Packers head coach’s press conference on Wednesday.

McCarthy is welcoming a veteran team that’ll kick off training camp practices at 8:20 a.m. on Thursday.

“There’s a lot of energy in the building. Everybody is excited to get on Nitschke Field tomorrow,” McCarthy said. “This team is definitely different than 2014. We acknowledged that in the spring.”

The Packers came within four minutes of the Super Bowl last season. McCarthy said he won’t encourage his team to use last season as motivation this year.

“It’s a group that has a lot of experience. There’s a percentage of youth we need to get ready. I’m focused on the top of the roster and the bottom of the roster coming together. We’re about winning the world championship here. Everything we do pushes us toward that goal,” McCarthy said.
