Thumbs up: With three of the Green Bay Packers' young wide receivers — seventh-round picks Charles Johnson and Kevin Dorsey, along with undrafted rookie Sederrick Cunningham — all sidelined by injuries, Tyrone Walker got a chance to shine. And he did. During an 11-on-11 drill in the second half of practice, Walker caught three passes in a four-play stretch, grabbing a B.J. Coleman pass along the left sideline on a free play; catching a short crossing route from Graham Harrell and the grabbing another Coleman pass on an out route. Walker earned a contract as a free-agent tryout invitee to the rookie orientation camp after the draft, and while Johnson and Dorsey missed almost all of organized team activity practices with injuries, he caught the attention of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. While coach Mike McCarthy cautioned about getting too excited about anyone before the pads come on on Sunday, it was a good day for the kid.

Thumbs down:McCarthy immediately defended him when the topic came up, but no matter how difficult the footwork was for Don Barclay or how inexperienced he is at the position, the back-to-back fumbled exchanges with Rodgers were unacceptable. Barclay, who started six games (including playoffs) at right tackle last season, is learning to play center, and mistakes are to be expected. But fumbles on back-to-back plays? Rodgers and Barclay were replaced by Harrell and Evan Dietrich-Smith on the third play, and after practice McCarthy wasn't too hard on Barclay, saying, "In fairness to Barclay, it's obviously new for Don working there. That particular play, that particular scheme, that's the hardest footwork that he has from an assignment standpoint. I'm a little more irritated with the play selection with the rotation. That's something that I could have probably done a better job of not asking him to do that right now in live action. That particular scheme is something that takes reps."

Play of the day:Even though McCarthy's words of caution about not having pads on yet rang true, it was hard not to notice the successive runs in an 11-on-11 drill by rookie running backs Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin. First, Lacy exploded around the right corner, showing impressive burst for a big fella, and was off to the races down the sideline. A couple plays later, the Packers ran it again, only with Franklin, who accelerated up the sideline and was gone, too. It may be hard to gauge the running game in shorts, but it's not hard to see running back talent, which both players have.

...


Practice schedule:The Packers hold their first practice in pads on Sunday at 8:20 a.m.at Ray Nitschke Field, weather permitting.

Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : Vince Biegel back on practice field!!
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : Maybe this little shout has no value if people gonna use it instead of the forum.
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : He's not writing. He's shouting, and its making the shout kind of without point with the clutter.
buckeyepackfan (18-Oct) : Just like last year at 4-6. The guy is just too funny!
buckeyepackfan (18-Oct) : GOOD news Uffda is already all but writing The Packers off for 2017!
uffda udfa (18-Oct) : Masturbation talk from Barfan? Nothing could make me COME back, quicker.
wpr (18-Oct) : Maybe the shout box needs to take a timeout. People keep using it. ;)
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : Why do this is in shout? So frustrating. Post in forums. Thanks
Barfarn (18-Oct) : Masterbation will relieve some of that nervous tension!
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Now, a guy they really liked and have groomed for 3 years is the guy. Tons of toys on O. Let's see how it runs with a great coach, now.
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : The Flynn Patriots game has been used to say that he is. Seneca and Scott showed otherwise.
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Hundley is going to settle the debate once and for all in whether Mike McCarthy is a great coach, or not.
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Doesn't speak well to the talent acquired by the org, does it? Easy to say talent is great until Rodgers is gone and you have to see it wit
Porforis (17-Oct) : Could Sam Bradford come into the Packers and post a winning record from here on out? Are there any non-starters in the NFL that could?
Zero2Cool (17-Oct) : Teddy is replaceable. Aaron is not. Vikings have a really good defense. We do not. Understand??
Zero2Cool (17-Oct) : You are wise enough to know the difference. Right?
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Here's one for you, Z. Vikes lose Teddy B. and go out and aggressively get Bradford. Packers lose 12 and go out and get a UDFA.
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : :) Evans had a pre-draft visit with Packers.
Zero2Cool (17-Oct) : Put it in a topic. My lord why so difficult lol
