Packers first practice in pads brings intensity, anticipation
by WDJT Sports


GREEN BAY - Datone Jones says he's practicing like he has a chip on his shoulder. Josh Sitton called the team's energy 'awesome'.

The sense of extra intensity comes from the team's first practice in pads Sunday in Green Bay.

The Packers are still dealing with some injuries at wide receiver. Sederrik Cunningham (wrist), Charles Johnson (knee), and Kevin Dorsey (lower body) have all been affected in the first few days of training camp, as has Casey Hayward, who will miss some time with a hamstring injury.

The team's Family Night scrimmage is this Saturday at 7:00 at Lambeau Field.
