The Packers First Full Week of Training Camp

The Green Bay Packers's practice schedule this week features three morning practices, an evening practice on Thursday, and Friday's Family Night televised scrimmage. My first thought was that it looked like a challenging week of practice in hot and humid weather, but without the two-a-day practices anymore, it's probably better than it used to be.

Unfortunately, these televised scrimmages aren't very informative, players emerge or disappoint during the preseason games, and they've been rained out in recent years. Still, it's always good to see some football.

I'm not expecting much news this week. Some players may look awful or great in practice, but it doesn't matter until the preseason games begin. There will be some injuries to watch, but most of the big injury news (Bishop, Kuhn) came last week. There shouldn't be any significant roster moves, like the release of Charlie Peprah, until the end of the month.
