In addition to the same players that missed practice last week, the Green Bay Packers have a new trio of players absent from Tuesday's Organized Team Activities—B.J. Raji, Colt Lyerla and Jumal Rolle—according to Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette:
At Packers OTA open to media today, rookie TE Colt Lyerla not here. Also not practicing:,CB Rolle, Matthews, Perry, Franklin, Bostick, Raji

No reason has yet been given for their respective absences, and the Packers do not comment on injuries during voluntary OTAs, so it's difficult to say whether if or when any explanation will be given.
UPDATE: In his post-practice press conference, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy did offer specifics but did say that he was aware where Lyerla is and he expects him back tomorrow. As for the rest of the players, McCarthy would only say that OTAs were voluntary and as such, wouldn't comment on their status.
