Thursday Practice: Don't Let Them Get Hurt

Mike McCarthy said the Green Bay Packers have some injuries so far this week. From the Press-Gazette:

 "I have a few injuries to talk about. Tom Crabtree, Lawrence Guy and (Kerry) Taylor were the three that missed practice. Also Adrian Battles with an Achilles and Theo Sherman with the ankle sprain. T. J. Lang was not here on a personal matter and Tramon Williams left practice with hip tightness that we don’t think will be serious."

The only big name is Williams, and I'm glad to see McCarthy was quick to down play that injury. 

But they are taking some more precautions during training camp than in the past. Due to having fewer practices leading up to Family Night, they won't have a live scrimmage on Saturday night. I'm a little disappointed because I'd like to see them tackle, but there's no point in pushing the players if it increases the risk of injury.
