Packers Calendar: Adams, Thornton Make First Public Practice Appearance

The Packers will hold practice open to the public Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. CT at Ray Nitschke Field.

After taking part in last week's NFLPA Rookie Premiere out in Los Angeles while the rest of the Green Bay Packers participated in the first open practice of the season, Tuesday represents the first time Davante Adams and Khyri Thornton will have an audience for practice as professional football players.

The Packers will hold their second Organized Team Activity practice of the season on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. at Ray Nitchke Field, open to the public.

For Adams, it will be an opportunity to see how he handles catching passes from quarterback Aaron Rodgers and how he fits into the Packers' new-look receiving corps.

And for Thornton, observers will be able to see why the Packers made him an unexpectedly high third round draft pick.

It's status quo for the rest of the Packers team, who continue to work on their craft in the run-up to the 2014 season.

Attention will also be on the players who didn't take part in practice last week in hopes that they'll potentially be able to return to action. Those players include Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Johnathan Franklin, Andrew Quarless, Brandon Bostick and Jerel Worthy.

Worthy didn't practice last week after his grandmother died in an accidental shooting. The rest of the players are presumably nursing old injuries, although the team doesn't comment on players' health status during voluntary OTAs.
