The Green Bay Packers will hit the practice field one final time before Saturday's second preseason game at the St. Louis Rams.
Practice will not be open to the public, so it may be some time before interested parties learn what happens behind closed doors, but it will be an important practice for wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who's coming off a hamstring injury.
Nelson missed two practices and the team's first preseason game in the past week, and he's been brought along slowly in a practice environment since that time.
"Jordy is on course to practice (Friday)," said head coach Mike McCarthy. "He practiced (Wednesday), so once we get through practice we'll determine the final playtime expectations for all the guys. He looks good."
McCarthy does not hold a press conference like he did each of the previous four days, so there doesn't appear to be an opportunity to learn on Friday if Nelson will play in his first preseason game.
The Packers will also finalize their quarterback rotation, which McCarthy had not set earlier in the week, but again, the public may not find out until the Packers take the field on Saturday.
After practice, the team will leave for St. Louis later in the day, spending the night before the game in the city of their opponent.
