Cheese Curds, 5/31: Packers prepare for second week of OTAs

An open session on Thursday highlights the second week of practices.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers concluded their first week of Organized Team Activities practices last week, and following a long weekend they will be scheduled to return to work again on Wednesday. The Packers will practice each of the final three days of the work week, with an open practice to be held on Thursday, June 2nd (weather permitting, as always).

As for what you're likely to see if you're in attendance? It's probably going to be very similar to last week's open practice, with a slew of individual or position drills and a handful of team practice periods. The bigger question is whether the players who sat out last week's session (names like Corey Linsley, Ty Montgomery, Sam Barrington, and others) will be able to work fully this Thursday.

Meanwhile, we've got another day to go before the players even take the field for a closed practice, so it should be a relatively quiet day on the news front. Here's a recap of what went on in the media covering the Packers over the long holiday weekend.
