The Packers return to practice on Wednesday with the season-opening loss in the rearview mirror, the first time they’ll start preparing for the home opener against Washington on Sunday.
Despite a lackluster performance on Monday Night Football, Green Bay still must be on alert for dangerous dual-threat quarterback Robert Griffin III and running back Alfred Morris.
One injured player worth monitoring will be safety Morgan Burnett, who practiced last week Wednesday and Thursday with the intent of playing, and then sat out of Sunday’s game.
The Packers figure to be extra cautious before taking away practice reps to M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian, but perhaps the time off will have allowed Burnett to get back to full strength.
Outside linebacker Nick Perry also suffered a stinger in the Week 1 loss, and his status is unknown at this point.
Head coach Mike McCarthy will have his press conference streamed live on the team’s official website at Packers.com at approximately 1:10 p.m. CT.
In the evening, safety M.D. Jennings will host the weekly Packers talk show from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. on The Fan 107.5 FM and 1400 AM in Green Bay, according to The Thornberry Creek golf course Facebook page, where the show is broadcasted.
