Mike McCarthy on Morgan Burnett: He's Having a Great Year

The head coach of the Packers commented on his safety at Thursday's press conference.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy met with the media on Thursday in advance of the upcoming game against the Buffalo Bills.

The following are select comments from McCarthy's press conference:

  • On Eddie Lacy's practice: He participated in the drill work and went through the teaching periods.
  • More on Eddie Lacy: He's making progress.
  • On the practice schedule coming off a Monday night game: I think everybody reponds clearly after a high-tempo practice, and the workload is the highest in the Thursday's practices. … It leads to a better Saturday practice.
  • On the Bills defense: The Buffalo Bills defense is excellent. It really starts up front, and I think they're very talented in the both the run and pass. … I think they're a complete defense and do things the right way, very aggressive. … We're expecting a juggernaut.
  • On the similarities between Green Bay and Buffalo: Absolutley. In the first team meetiing Tuesday, we just outlined it … the passion of their fanbase and the type of environment we're going into it. I've always appreciated going there in the past, and once again, you have to make sure your team is ready for that.
  • On the Packers running game: I'm not going to get into what we're going to do. Every week it's important to run it on the road. … That'll be our approach.
  • On Davon House's injury: Davon House is going to have some tests tomorrow and maybe Saturday. … We're still gathering information on his injury.
  • On whether House will play on Sunday: We'll let you know tomorrow.
  • On House's shoulder: I think you've got to look at the film. I think if you've watched the tape and saw the position his body was in, you understand the injury. … Julio was injured on the same play. Both players were in an awkward position.
  • On Morgan Burnett: I thought Morgan Burnett's having a great year. He made two plays in practice today that were phenomenal. … He has a great relationship not only with the safeties but with the corners. Him and Sam Shields are very close.
