Not Practicing: TE Evan Baylis (Calf), WR Equanimeous St. Brown (Knee)

  • Marcedes Lewis just won a rep in one on ones.
  • Rashan Gary went one-on-one with Jimmy Graham. Both held their own and ended up on the ground.
  • David Bakhtiari and Lane Taylor beat Za’Darius Smith and Kyler Fackrell. Video
  • Aaron Jones not doing team but instead doing a lot of conditioning.
  • Aaron Rodgers counters with a bomb to Marquez Valdes-Scantling against CB Jaire Alexander. Nice recovery from Alexander, who stripped MVS while trailing to force fumble, but MVS recovers ball in end zone for TD.
  • Dexter Williams just dropped his third pass in the last practice and a half. Tough go for the sixth-round back.
  • Rodger TD to Allison.
  • Aaron Rodgers floats one up for Davante Adams through double coverage and it’s.... a 12 yard touchdown. But of course.
  • Aaron Rodgers rolls left and finds Jake Kumerow in the back of the end zone. Nice toe drag by Kumerow to stay in bounds for the 8 yard touchdown. Kumerow shielded CB Tony Brown with his back. He gets a Rodgers fist bump.
  • Rodgers fits one in tight window to Jimmy Graham for a TD.
  • Rodgers just fooled the entire defense with a fake handoff and pranced into the end zone without anyone in the same zip code.
  • Offense lighting up today. That was just 5 TDs on 7 plays.
  • Tra Carson is the most complete of the backups which prolly should be expected as it’s his third year in the league. Picked up Greene on blitz, giving 12 time to hit Kumerow downfield.
  • During breaks for the starting offense, Aaron Rodgers has continued to teach his young receivers. Had a brief chat with Jake Kumerow after their red zone work, then just chatted with MVS after team drills.
  • Rodgers just dropped one in the net from about 50 yards away.
  • Allison might be having his best day of camp. Skies to make an excellent back shoulder catch over Tramon Williams on a 30 yard pass from Rodgers in two min.
  • As good as Rodgers has been today, he can’t seem to connect with MVS. They missed a couple times in 2-minute.
  • Jake Kumerow blows right by Ka’Dar Holman and DeShone Kizer drops it in the bucket for a big gain. 43 yards.
  • Darrin Hall makes a leaping one handed catch for a 10 yard TD as time expires in no 2 two minute. Kizer rolled out and found him for score.
  • 2pt conversion to win after the TD, but Hall's score is called back because of penalty and Kizer is sacked on re-try.
  • As Josh Jackson works his way back from his foot injury, he is not participating in one-on-ones right now.
  • Za’Darius Smith and Kenny Clark beat Lane Taylor and Corey Linsley. Video
  • ZaDarius Smith just blew up a pitch to Carson.
  • DL getting better if OL in early team drill. Kenny Clark with a stuff in the backfield this time.
  • Curtis Bolton alongside Blake Martinez at ILB in 11-on-11s with Oren Burks out.
  • Kenny Clark was on his knees for a bit & and is getting some attention. Now he's heading inside. He's back in team drills now.
  • Current dime look: Alexander and T. Brown (for King) at outside corner, Tramon and Greene in the slot, Amos and Savage at safety.
  • Chandon Sullivan picks off Tim Boyle down left sideline on pass intended for Teo Redding.
  • Tony Brown, who Rodgers says talks the most during practice, is talking smack constantly with offense on sidelines during 2-minute drill
Special Teams:
  • Darrius Shepherd fielding punts in first special teams period

Press Conference Notes:
LaFleur wouldn’t get into specifics of Oren Burks’ injury, or the timetable for his return. Says he likes young guys behind Burks at the position.
LaFleur says Allen Lazard earning more reps. Started with him being the first down on kickoff coverage
LaFleur says LG Lane Taylor had a good preseason opener after being challenged for his starting job, and he likes how Taylor is responding in practice. “He’s definitely answering that bell.”

Edge rushers Rashan Gary and Za'Darius Smith have been working with D-line coach Jerry Montgomery.
Shepherd beats Amos 1v1. Video.
Man. Myth. Mustache.
Practice has ended at: 12:22 PM | 2 hrs 7 min
Next event is: Training Camp Tuesday (8/13) at 10:15 AM CDT


Mark I counted roster spot I show we have 2 open roster spots? I counted 88 guys is there a guy I am missing that is on PUP and should not counted?


Yes he was not on the Packers list I did count 88 but I see Greg Roberts and Campbell both were listed on roster and not as PUP guys so do they count against the 90 man then?
