As we inch ever closer to the first preseason game of the 2014 season, the Green Bay Packers will continue with practice today at noon Central time. One player who will not be participating in practice is Colt Lyerla, whose injury was given a little more clarity on Monday.

A player who will be taking part in his daily bike ride to Ray Nitschke Field is rookie center Corey Linsley, and we have a great story about the relationship he has built up over the past week and a half with his bike kid. It's great seeing players give back to their community, and this story is no different.

We'll see you back here for practice at noon.

Both quality control coach Luke Getsy and coaching administrator David Raih are former quarterbacks and can bring some additional perspective to that position.

Womp womp. That will significantly hurt Lyerla's shot at making the team this year. Two defensive starters also dropped out of Monday night's practice: Morgan Burnett (again) and Brad Jones.

Well now, this is interesting. I thought he was taking time off to spend with his family. This isn't a formal job and appears to be just a short-term thing, but it still makes you scratch your head a bit.

Ruh roh. So much for that expected breakout, at least in the beginning of the year. Odds are good that Wilson will miss the Bears' week 4 matchup with the Packers.
