Texans at Packers Game Photos

After getting caught up with the Training Camp galleries, it’s time to post photos from the first preseason game featuring the Green Bay Packers vs. the Houston Texans. The southerners came north earlier in the week to practice twice against the Packers at Ray Nitschke Field. You can see those galleries here and here.

Here’s the view of Lambeau Field as we approach from the west, our usual direction after parking in the local neighborhood on that side.

Something we don’t see too often... a player coming over to the railing and signing autographs during warm-ups. The Packers’ longtime kicker, Mason Crosby (#2) attracted a crowd quickly.

Being a Gold Package ticket holders game (largely from the Milwaukee area), the crowd dwindled in the second half, as most of them had to drive back south to go to work in the morning.

2029 Packers Training Camp — Practice 16

Monday afternoon brought the final practice of 2019 Packers Training Camp at Ray Nitschke Field. It was much warmer than it was on Sunday, but a good crowd was on hand.

Ladies and gentlemen... CB Josh Jackson (#37) tying his shoes!

Special Teams Coordinator Shawn Mennenga at work early in practice.

Coach Matt LaFleur with his boot finally removed.

Ball-handling drills for those who handle the ball. Here we see RB Tra Carson (#32) being pestered by coaches wearing red boxing gloves, trying to punch the ball out.

The ball-handlers are holding balls connected to ropes that coaches are trying to yank to ball out with. That sentence is grammatically wrong, but we will move on.

Wide receivers working against an “opponent.”

Now the wide receivers have a coach giving them the business off the line of scrimmage.

WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (#83) snags a pass.

WR Davante Adams (#17) does the same thing with only one hand.

TE Evan Baylis (#49) shows that tight ends can also catch the ball.
