Before our beloved Green Bay Packers take to Lambeau Field for the final practice of the week, here is what I am looking forward to as Family Night approaches.

Julius Peppers
- I can't hold it in anymore… I am stoked to see Julius Peppers practice live in a Packer uniform. I am not a Green Bay local, so all I get are short clips from the press of him jogging around or kneeling with helmet on the ground. So full disclosure, I am a huge fan of Peppers (have been for years), and tonight is when it will finally sink in for me that the guy is finally on our side. Although I know he is in the twilight of his career, that does not diminish my excitement and anticipation at all.

Linebackers
- Will we see any surprises tonight as far as where certain linebackers line up? I hope so. The defensive staff has been talking about more packages and less plays since the off-season began. I am excited to get taste of what some of these packages will look like. How will Lattimore look tonight? Who out of the rookie class will flash before our eyes? The linebacker group is the one I have the most interest in during pre-season. I want to see playmakers make some plays. I want to see a liability for the past few seasons become a strength. Will we get a sense of that possibility tonight?

Starting O-Line
- Last year's Family Night was a somber one for the offensive line and the team as a whole. Starting Bryan Bulaga was lost for the season when he suffered an ACL tear. We can only hope that no serious injuries occur tonight, which is part of the reason why tonight is a glorified practice rather than a scrimmage. Bulaga has had a great first week and I look forward to seeing evidence of that tonight. Elsewhere, I am looking to see something more from Barclay. Can he make a push into the starting lineup? That may seem like an obvious no, but coach said he has earned the right to battle for a starting job, so bring it on I say. Most fans eyes will be on JC Tretter tonight. How comfortable will he look out there at a very demanding position? It is important to keep perspective on the fact that he is still developing in this role. His grooming is actually quite similar to that of EDS, and the coaching staff certainly has shown unwavering faith in him. Should fans be as concerned as they have been recently about Tretter? Perhaps tonight will help us answer that question.

What about you? What and/or who are you looking forward to seeing tonight?

I admit I got choked up a little when the players were announced and ran onto the field. The practice was not real exciting. Except when raji got hurt . It looked like he got kicked in the leg.

So, two injuries this year. We lost Bulaga last year during this event and now we may have lost Raji and Lyerla this year. An ankle injury is not what you want a big fat guy to have. Datone was never the same after his ankle injury last year. If Raji is compromised who is going to play nose? Boyd? Pennel? Guion? Thornton (he might be the least talked about Packer so far)?

As for Lyerla, Wilde said he had crutches in his locker but was walking without them. Sounds like he's finding himself slowly but surely. Maybe, they can IR him and develop him for next season.

All things considered, Lyerla wasn't performing very well prior to this injury.

Might want to let Raji know how bad he's hurt

Quote:
Many in the crowd of 67,336 -- a Family Night record -- were probably holding their breath when Raji appeared to injury his right ankle. He did not return to the practice but afterward said he was only scheduled to play one more snap.

"I'm fine; I just got rolled up on in one of the passing drills," Raji said. "But after the initial shock of it, I was able to walk it off, and I felt like I'll be OK."

Raji said he expected to be able to practice when training camp resumes Monday.

Maybe Tretter will start looking better in 1 on 1's.
