The grind continues for the Green Bay Packers. Wednesday represents the second of five consecutive days of practicing in pads, as the team gets ready for Saturday evening’s intra-squad scrimmage.
Practice takes place at 8:20 a.m. at Ray Nitschke Field. The forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-60s, perhaps reaching the 70s by the end of the session. No rain should fall while players are on the field.
The Packers are dealing with a variety of nagging injuries, but none of them seem to be serious. The secondary, in particular, is seeing the effects of depth.
Whether any players return from injury, including offensive lineman Derek Sherrod, remains to be seen.
After practice, head coach Mike McCarthy will have his press conference streamed live on the team’s official website at Packers.com.
