Packers training camp 2019 - August 19th live practice updates

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers bring the open portion of training camp to a close today.

Today is a bittersweet day for Green Bay Packers fans; while it brings the team one step closer to the start of real football and there is another open training camp practice, today’s session is the final practice open to fans this summer.

It has been entertaining following Matt LaFleur’s first training camp as the Packers’ head coach, but after today everything moves indoors as the...

Packers agree to injury settlement with 2018 7th-round pick Kendall Donnerson

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The project is over, at least for the time being.

In 2018, with the Green Bay Packers seemingly needing depth at the outside linebacker position, new general manager Brian Gutekunst did not land any free agents, adding only one player to the position group in that year’s NFL Draft. That player, seventh-round pick Kendall Donnerson, was a ridiculous athlete, but coming out of Southeast Missouri State he was a project at the NFL level.

Donnerson went on to...

Building a better team is the best path to protecting against an Aaron Rodgers injury

Brett Hundley’s struggles in 2017 reignited the debate about the Packers’ backup plan for their star QB. With DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle looking shaky, the question persists. But Green Bay should be focused on the bolstering the team around Rodgers, not behind him.

There’s a legendary, potentially apocryphal, story about Peyton Manning’s backup. One day,...

Monday Cheese Curds: Don’t panic about Rashan Gary; remembering Cedric Benson

The Packers’ top pick hasn’t been racking up (any) stats, but that’s no reason to label him a bust already. Meanwhile, the team remembers a brief contributor who has been taken too soon.

The Green Bay Packers are inching closer and closer to the start of the regular season, and with the passage of time the team is defining more specific roles for its key players. One such player is the team’s first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Rashan Gary, who has...

Ex-NFL RB Cedric Benson dies at 36 in motorcycle accident

Former Chicago Bears running back Cedric Benson died over the weekend at age 36. Benson was reportedly involved in a motorcycle accident on Saturday night, according to NFL reporter Dov Kleiman.

Emergency officials in Austin, Texas, told the American-Statesman that they are investigating a crash that killed Benson and a passenger. Two other people were injured in...

Packers TE Jimmy Graham suffered apparent injury in practice

The Green Bay Packers are hopeful to get more production from former Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham in his second season with the team. Graham struggled to connect with Aaron Rodgers in 2018. Despite this, Green Bay brought him back on a $12.67 million cap hit for the 2019 season, which is the highest for a tight end in the NFL. Unfortunately, it looks like Graham might be sidelined for a bit. Reports during Packers practice on Sunday suggest the veteran suffered some sort of finger injury...

The second-to-last open practice begins today at 1:30 CT.

A week ago, coming off a home game in their preseason opener the previous Thursday, the Green Bay Packers held training camp practices on Saturday and Sunday, with an off day before a third practice on Tuesday. This week, with the team headed back from a Thursday night game in Baltimore, they stayed off the field Saturday and will work on three straight days from Sunday to...

Packers’ pass defense must improve when playing from behind in 2019

Photo by Larry Radloff/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images In 2018, Green Bay’s defense struggled to give its offense a chance to come back, as evidenced by opposing quarterback stats. Sometimes in sports, the eyeball test and the numerical data align when comparing subjects. For the Green Bay Packers, this was not a positive thing when judging the defense’s inability to get critical stops in 2018. And it was not just on third downs to get off the field, but when the opponent was leading...

Packers punter JK Scott put up another excellent performance against Ravens

Photo by Larry Radloff/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

With a gross average over 50 yards and hang times of about 5 seconds on every one of his six kicks, Scott deserves some credit once again.

The Green Bay Packers had few impressive performances on Thursday in Baltimore, but for a second straight week one of them belonged to their punter. Second-year pro JK Scott had to work hard on angles and placement of his punts a week ago, but against the Ravens he showed off his big leg.

These two positions may be the Packers’ toughest calls at the end of camp.

If you were hoping to have a clearer picture by now about the Green Bay Packers’ roster battle at wide receiver, you’re going to have to wait.

On Thursday, the Packers’ wideouts showed more of the same from recent performances in games, as a few young, ascending players impressed in the team’s second preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. Don’t look now, but...

Matt LaFleur has no worries about Aaron Rodgers’ joint practice comments

Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur appears to be handling his relationship with his star quarterback the right way. Amid speculation that there may be early tension between LaFleur and Aaron Rodgers, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reported that the pair are doing well in the early stages. LaFleur is “amused” by the speculation about the relationship, and Rodgers is saying the right things. In addition, LaFleur was unbothered when Rodgers was critical of LaFleur’s joint practices.

Friday Cheese Curds: Aaron Rodgers sits while the Packers burn the tape

Will we see the quarterback in action before Week 1? Matt LaFleur changes his tune.

To play or not to play?

For Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur, that is the question.

Rodgers was a last minute scratch in last night’s preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens due to “back tightness” that LaFleur said after the game flared up earlier in the day and Rodgers was being held out as a precautionary measure.

There’s little doubt Rodgers would have been up had...

Packers stock watch: Curtis Bolton, wide receivers provide shine in otherwise poor performance vs. Ravens

Packers linebacker Curtis Bolton flashed for the second consecutive game and looks like one of the leading candidates to fill in for the injured Oren Burks.

In the vast majority of cases, one preseason game will not make or break a player’s chances for a contributing role or a spot on the season-opening roster. However, their performances make up part of the larger picture, something the Green Bay Packers’ coaching staff will...
