Packers Training Camp Report 7-30-14

The Packers were back in pads Wednesday following a day off Tuesday
(WFRV-TV) - The Green Bay Packers were back in pads Wednesday, following the first off day of training camp on Tuesday.

On the injury front, LB Jamari Lattimore (illness) and Mike Neal (core muscle injury) returned for the Packers 4th practice of camp.  WR Jeff Janis (illness), DE Jerel Worthy (lower back), DT LeTroy Guion (hamstring), and OLB Nick Perry (foot/knee) reamined on the sidelines for Green Bay.  Safety Morgan Burnett tweaked his ankle during practice, giving Micah Hyde and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix the majority of the first-team looks in the secondary.  Guard T.J. Lang (shoulder) continues to just take a few reps here and there, while Don Barclay gets the majority of the work in his place.

As far as on the field action goes, a few young guys continue to perform at a high level.  TE Richard Rodgers has caught everything in his direction, while other tight ends have struggled at times to consistently haul passes in.  WR Jared Abbrederis is showing he can run crisp routes and get open for receptions.  His sure-hands have also been on display.  Another guy who's stood out has been 4th year CB Davon House.  Mike McCarthy said House is having his best camp yet, and entering a contract year it's good timing for the Packers 6'0, 195 pound corner.

B.J. Raji looks like he entered camp with a point to prove as well.  Raji has performed admirably in 1-on-1 work against the offensive line, particulary handling new center J.C. Tretter with a variety of pass-rush moves.  Raji wasn't on the field much in pass rush situations a year ago, but in a contract year, Raji has entered camp in great shape and is showing what he's capable of.

The big news of the day happened off the field where GM Ted Thompson signed a contract extension that will keep him with the team past 2016, when his deal was set to expire.
