2017 Training Camp • Practice 7

We’re back, trying to get caught up with the practice photos from Packers Training Camp 2017. There were no photos from last Thursday’s practice because it was moved inside the Don Hutson Center and closed to the public. Green Bay received a lot of rain last week, and that made the fields too wet to use on Thursday evening. But, as you can see in the above photo, the weather was perfect on Friday evening — dry and even a bit cool.

As the defense stretches, NT Leroy Guion (#98) and DE Dean Lowry (#94) usually share a spot in the front row. Whether or not Mr. Guion is still with the Packers going into the season is yet to be seen. He has an affinity for meeting police officers under the wrong circumstances.

Stretching together each day also goes for the linebackers seen here: LB Clay Matthews (#52), LB Blake Martinez (#50), and LB Jake Ryan (#47).

Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers gives some instruction to his players, FS Damarious Randall (#23), CB Quinten Rollins (#24), and an unidentified fellow defensive back.

QB Aaron Rodgers (#12) did not throw at all on Friday — to rest him for a full show on Saturday’s “Family Night,” we imagine.
