Green Bay Packers Training Camp: Practice Notes 8/28

Borel will need to actually catch these passes on Thursday if he wants to have a chance at making the Packers' roster.

We have finally reached the end of training camp practices. The Packers held their final workout of the 2012 training camp at 11:00 AM today, and had another walkthrough for the preseason game against the Chiefs on Thursday. Players jobs will not be won and lost today, but will definitely be determined on Thursday night.

  • Ryan Taylor and Ryan Pickett returned to practice today (TS), while Jamari Lattimore missed practice with the injury he suffered yesterday (RD).
  • Also held out of practice were Tom Crabtree, D.J. Williams, Robert Francois, James Starks, Derek Sherrod, Curenski Gilleylen, Davon House, and Andrew Datko (TS, RD).
  • It appears that Jarrett Bush is likely your week one starter at cornerback, as he took the first reps once again today in the base defense (WH).
  • Graham Harrell and Tori Gurley hooked up a few times today, once on a nicely thrown deep ball down the sidelines and shortly thereafter on a crossing route over the middle (WH).
  • Diondre Borel, on the other hand, dropped a catchable ball from B.J. Coleman (WH) early, then dropped a hard-thrown ball from Aaron Rodgers later on (TD).
  • Don Barclay got time at left tackle today, after playing right tackle for a while yesterday (WH). If he can show his versatility on Thursday, he will likely lock down a roster spot.
  • Jermichael Finley put an exclamation point on training camp with a great touchdown catch from Aaron Rodgers along the back of the end zone (TD). He even gave Rodgers the belt afterwards.
That's it from a quick, 66-minute practice, which saw little in the way of serious competition. The Packers are in action on Thursday night, then will make their final cuts to get down to 53 players on the active roster by 9 PM Eastern on Friday.

For the final time, I would like to thank the reporters for tweeting all the news from camp over the past several weeks.
