On Thursday, Aaron Rodgers threw another interception in practice. Through six training camp practices, the Green Bay Packers' starting quarterback has thrown five picks, and though that might seem on its face to be cause for concern, Rodgers tried to get the media to "R-E-L-A-X" when discussing why they have taken place.

Meanwhile, the Packers are dealing with injuries at outside linebacker once again, while a key member of the secondary is trying to avoid nagging injury issues of his own with a creative preventative routine.
