The Packers are second in the NFL with 51 interceptions since 2011 but surprisingly have only two so far this season.

Clay Matthews, Brad Jones and Andy Mulumba were all missing from Wednesday's practice session.

Nick Perry and Mike Neal have done little in the way of putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks so far this season.

The veteran cornerback could mirror Green no matter where he lines up on the field, on the perimeter or in the slot.

Tramon Williams covering the slot, Davon House out on the perimeter and Chris Banjo at safety were among the looks the Packers showed in Week 2.

Defensive lineman B.J. Raji says it's better for the Packers to face option teams in Week 1 and 2 of the season rather than later in the year.

The return of safety Morgan Burnett and slot cornerback Casey Hayward will be a boon to a Packers secondary working with lesser talent.

Once Casey Hayward and Tramon Williams are back to 100 percent, Hyde's quickest path to playing time may be at safety.

There are arguably eight defensive linemen worth keeping on the Packers roster this season, but can they really afford to keep both Jolly and Boyd around?

If Neal can be an effective edge rusher, that will allow Matthews to roam the middle of the field, containing the likes of Colin Kaepernick and RG3.

Often injured Mike Neal appears to be getting closer to making his pre-season debut.

In our worst-case scenario, Mason Crosby bottoms out. He can't seem to hit the broad side of a barn with his kicks and is eventually cut.

In our best-case scenario, Casey Hayward is able to exceed the six interceptions he grabbed during his rookie season in the NFL.

In our worst-case scenario, A.J. Hawk is replaced in the starting lineup by the end of the Packers' 2013 season.

In our best-case scenario, Matthews has more than 15 sacks in 2013, in what becomes his best season as a professional.

In our best-case scenario, Datone Jones is able to come up with eight-plus sacks and is a Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate in 2013.

There's very little depth at safety in Green Bay, and beyond Morgan Burnett, there's not much experience either. As little as one injury at the position could be costly.

Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels is working to overcome the perception that he's undersized in a profession that boasts players who are much taller and heavier.

According to Larry McCarren, the Packers defense faced the pistol formation on the first snap of Tuesday's OTA practice.
