GREEN BAY–Wisconsin native Jared Abbrederis earned the biggest cheer of Sunday morning’s practice when he caught a deep pass from quarterback Matt Flynn. Abbrederis, a rookie fifth-round draft pick, made the catch down the right sideline behind cornerback Tramon Williams and in front of safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, the Packers’ first-round draft pick.
Earlier in the practice, second-year man Micah Hyde made the defensive play of practice when he knocked away an Aaron Rodgers deep pass that was intended for Jordy Nelson. Hyde, who has been moved from cornerback to safety, continues to hold down what appears to be a starting job.
Linebacker Jamari Lattimore was added to the list of players not participating in practice (illness).
Packers.com will update this story following Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s post-practice press conference.
