On Monday, the Green Bay Packers get back to work after a day off on Sunday and a long week of practice with a preseason game mixed in. It's safe to assume that Scott Tolzien will be one of the first players into the facility today, as his work ethic is becoming something of a legend among the media in Green Bay.

While Tolzien works hard on the field, Andy Mulumba works hard on and off, bringing attention to a worthy cause dear to his heart when not involved in football. Another young defender, Quinten Rollins, is completely focused on football, however, and carries a professional demeanor both on and off the field.

We have that and much more in today's cheese curds.

Packers’ running game gets off to solid start |
All five running backs had productive nights in one way or another last Thursday, while Mike Pennel had a good night on the defensive line as he adjusts to taking some snaps at a new position this year.

Packers' Mulumba strives to RAISE Hope for Congo |
Andy Mulumba has always been passionate about raising awareness and money for people in his home in Congo, and it is only recently that he has begun to feel comfortable speaking in front of large groups of people about his cause.

Packers allowed this Ron Wolf mistake on the field just once |
This is a great story. Ted Thompson actually modeled a new uniform, designed by Wolf in an effort to shake up the losing ways of the 1970s and 80s. He wore it alone onto Lambeau Field just once, before Wolf and Harlan realized it would be a huge mistake.

Green Bay Packers rookie Quinten Rollins acts, plays like he belongs |
Regarding the two plays on which he might have been able to come down with interceptions, Rollins says "I did my job," but also says "You can always do your job better than you're supposed to do it."

Something to believe in | ESPN Wisconsin
Scott Tolzien's work ethic and desire to constantly improve has been highly-talked about in and around Green Bay, and it's paying off this season in his performance in training camp.

Calm down or Believe the hype? Green Bay Packers edition | Cheesehead TV
We're two and a half weeks into training camp, which means that we can at least start to make judgments about how players are going to live up to or fall short of the expectations placed on them.

Trent Richardson probably had a perfectly good reason for running away from that hole, jerks -
No, no he did not.
