1:05 p.m.
Linebacker Abdul Hodge had a monster hit against fullback Ryan Powdrell during a team drill. Hodge essentially pancaked Powdrell and dropped him to the ground when Powdrell was trying to block him on a run up the middle.

A loud thud could be heard on the hit, which drew several raves and cat-calls from teammates.

12:55 p.m.

Newly signed defensive tackle Rodney Allen looked impressive during one-on-one pass-blocking drills. Allen won all three of his reps against guard Ryan Keegan.

Allen Barbre also did well in one-on-one drills. He won two reps against Michael Montgomery at left tackle and two more reps at left guard against Daniel Muir. On one of the plays he threw Muir to the ground. It wasnt a completely successful day for Barbre, though, who during a team drill got smoked by rookie defensive end Jeremy Thompson.

* Other team drill highlights: Will Blackmon intercepted a Brian Brohm pass over the middle. Cullen Jenkins knocked down a screen pass at the line of scrimmage. Noah Herron and Jeremy Thompson engaged in a brief shoving match after a play.

12:42 p.m.

Kicker Mason Crosby booted a pair of 25-yard field goals during a half-speed drill.

* Also tight end Donald Lee caught a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers during a goal-line drill. Its the same kind of pass that Lee dropped in the endzone during the Packers preseason game against the 49ers Saturday night.

Noon

A Packers spokesman has confirmed that Rodney Allen has been signed by the team. Allen is a 6-foot-2, 315-pound defensive tackle who played his final college season at Kansas in 2006. His most recent football experience came with the Odessa Roughnecks in the Intense Football League.

The team spokesman also confirmed that TE Evan Moore was placed on injured reserve, meaning he will be out for the entire season.

* S Aaron Rouse and RB Brandon Jackson got into a scuffle following a team drill play. Rouse was blitzing on the play and the two engaged in a brief shoving match. Rouse has been engaged in extracurricular activity in the past, but it was the first for the normally mild-mannered Jackson.

* Jason Spitz continues to take snaps with the first-team offense at center with the absence of Scott Wells. Daryn Colledge and Allen Barber are splitting time at left guard in the absence of Chad Clifton at left tackle. Tony Moll, Barbre and Colledge have all had time in that spot. Rookie Josh Sitton continues to hold down the right guard position.

11:40 a.m.

This mornings roll call: Players not participating include cornerback Al Harris, safety Charlie Peprah, running back Ryan Grant, center Scott Wells, defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, tackle Chad Clifton, running back DeShawn Wynn, linebacker A.J. Hawk, defensive tackles Justin Harrell and Ryan Pickett, tight end Evan Moore, and cornerback Joe Porter.

Returning after a lengthy stay on the injury list is tight end Tory Humphrey.

The Packers have a new player on the roster, although the team has not yet made an official announcement. It is believed the player is defensive tackle Rodney Allen out of Kansas. Allen is wearing No. 67 and a team spokesman said an announcement would be made sometime today on the new player.
It is believed that Moore will be placed on injured reserve to make room for Allen.

* Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was right on the money in a long-distance pass drill, putting a deep ball into the net from about 45 yards. Matt Flynn almost performed the same feat, but his pass hit the rim of the net and bounced out.

* (Updated 12:15 p.m.) A team spokesman confirmed that offensive coordinator Joe Philbin was not at practice for the second day because of a death in his family.

10:10 a.m.
Packers practice begins at 10:45 a.m. today on Clarke Hinkle Field. The temperature at 10 a.m. is 65 degrees and sky is overcast.

Well, the last time we signed a huge cast-off DT out of Kansas it turned out pretty well.

My man big Gil.. dark shield and one stout SOB.. no doubt one of my favs in Packer lore.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

it is insurance and I highly doubt they are expecting him to come in and take a starting spot opening night

If he does move up fast then that is a plus

Ya know, you stumped me, I moved out of GB in 88'. It was behind the Stein, or, If you go as far back as American Launderers and Dry Cleaners, it was directly behind that. That was where I was working when I frequented Al's.

Yes, that would be PackOne.

Wow for a 300+ pound DT he looks like he's actually a solid pass rusher. I was expecting some one that could just push the line back and block runs. He actually looks like he has good closing speed and athleticism to go with his good size. Lets hope he makes the team and makes an impact.

Wow he beat Ryan Keegan, who ever the hell he is; that's impressive.
I guess we are at the bottom of the barrel looking for D-lineman.
