GREEN BAY, WI (WSAU) The Green Bay Packer players are off today, a day later than normal. That’s because the Pack doesn’t play until Monday night, when they take on the Seahawks in Seattle. The Packers practiced yesterday, and they reviewed film from both their Week-One loss to San Francisco and their Week-Two win over Chicago to see what they have to improve upon.
Coach Mike McCarthy said his offense is making progress, and it’s not far from where he wants it to be. He says it’s too early to make major evaluations with just two games under the team’s belt. McCarthy says those kinds of reviews don’t come until after Weeks Four-or-Five – when they can really identify themselves in each of their major units.
The Green Bay running game expects to get a boost when James Starks returns from a lingering turf-toe injury. However, he might not able to play against the Seahawks. The Packers do expect to get receiver Greg Jennings back, after he missed last Thursday’s win over Chicago with a groin injury suffered against the 49’ers. Both Jennings and Starks practiced yesterday. Practice resumes tomorrow.
