The Green Bay Packers lost three starters to injury—all to differing extents—in last week's game against the Oakland Raiders, and they also cut seven players on Sunday, so the team they field on Monday for their first public practice of the week will look a bit different than the one from just a week ago.
Defensive lineman B.J. Raji (biceps), center J.C. Tretter (knee) and linebacker Brad Jones (quadriceps) didn't practice on Sunday and won't be practicing on Tuesday when the Packers take to Ray Nitschke Field at 11:45 a.m.
In their place with the starters is expected to be Josh Boyd at nose tackle, Corey Linsley at center and Jamari Lattimore at inside linebacker, although several players make take on larger roles in response to the injuries.
The Packers will be preparing to face the Kansas City Chiefs in the preseason finale on Thursday with lots of question marks about how they get through the last exhibition game with an eye toward the regular season.
Head coach Mike McCarthy will have an update on his team's progress in a press conference to be streamed live after practice at approximately 2:15 p.m. CT on Packers.com.
Also taking place at Lambeau Field on Monday is a Red Cross Blood Drive from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Walk-in donors of all blood types are welcome inside the Legends Club inside the stadium.
Right here at Cheesehead TV, we'll have our Railbird Central morning talk show and podcast to break down the latest injuries and how the Packers will respond at 8:30 a.m. CT. Then we'll have our live blog to follow along with training camp when practice starts at 11:45 a.m.
