Packers Calendar: Practicing for the Redskins Begins

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 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.

The show can be streamed online at

and the packers earned two days off why? I thought we lost the game.
I can understand not practicing since it won't make our slow of foot dbacks any faster and they won't learn to play zone any better due to lack of speed so maybe this is no reason for it.

They didn't earn anything. This is common practice for every team in the NFL. It's not as if they didn't lift weights, it's not as if they didn't have meetings or watch film. You don't run a team into the ground when they'll be playing through January. I assume you even take weekends off, right?

You talked about a dual threat -QB &RB. What about recievers? Any "Boldins"?
