The Packers practiced in full pads on Thursday. Five players were not in pads and participated only in the opening jog-through portion of practice before leaving — CB Charles Woodson, LB Diyral Briggs, LB Erik Walden, DE Ryan Pickett and C Scott Wells.
LB Frank Zombo continued to sit out practice, while G/T Marshall Newhouse was not in attendance during the media portion of the workout.
Also, LB Clay Matthews was dressed in full pads for practice for the first time in several weeks. Until this week, Matthews had been limited to jog-through segments of practice only, but he did more drills on Wednesday and was presumably going to do more again Thursday with pads on.
