GREEN BAY, Wis, (WFRV) – It’s the final countdown. The last week before those final roster cuts next Saturday. For some players vying for one of those final spots on the Green and Gold, the best chance to shine will be in Saturday’s game like simulations in Lambeau.
New on the Did Not Practice (DNP) list is wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown. Still not practicing is safety Raven Greene, corner back Kabion Ento, corner back Will Sunderland, linebacker Randy Ramsey, tight end Marcedes Lewis, linebacker Montravious Adams and linebacker Treyvon Hester.
News and Notes
There were quite a few balls on the ground, something Matt LaFleur was not happy about. Tim Boyle fumbled a snap during team drills and rookie running back AJ Dillon dropped a pitch from Boyle.
However, Aaron Rodgers had crisp passes to Allen Lazard and Marquz Valdes-Scantling, as well as nice runs by Aaron Jones.
