NOW: Packers look strong at running back on first day of OTAs

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Packers are back on the practice field taking part organized team activities OTAs as they're called.

This time last year it was a given that the number one running back position would go to the transformed wide receiver Ty Montgomery, but this year a pair of second year players have changed the dynamic in the backfield and created some competition during OTAs.

The Packers shored up on running backs in last year’s draft and it paid off. When Montgomery suffered a rib injury, rookies Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams stepped up and totaled more than a 1,000 yards in his absence.

"It’s been a lot of fun seeing those guys go out there and put their best foot forward and makes me want to elevate my game as well so we're all seeing each other's best foot and we're just going to continue to push each other. Working harder I know the play book so I can go out there and play a lot faster so it makes it easier out here at OTAs,” said Jamaal Williams.

Aaron Jones who had two 100 yard games last season is looking strong and healthy during OTAs after suffering an MCL injury in week 17 last year.
