NFL Green Bay Packers Hot News

The Green Bay Packers held an abbreviated Family Night practice at a rain-soaked Lambeau Field on Saturday.

Around 35,000 fans attended despite the weather concerns. Matt LaFleur’s team was able to run through several team periods during the practice, providing an opportunity to see a bunch of players in live action.

Here are a few standouts from the initial viewing of the scrimmage:

CB Chandon Sullivan

The likely starter in the slot had terrific coverage on at least three different plays during team periods. Early on, he blanketed Randall Cobb on a third-down throw down the seam. Later, he had Allen Lazard well covered on a post and then took away Davante Adams in the end zone on the final play of the two-minute period, winning the round for the defense.

Funchess was heavily targeted while playing with both the first- and second-team offenses. Aaron Rodgers found him on a quick hitter to convert a third down during one move-the-ball period, and Jordan Love connected with him twice after he flashed wide open on out-breaking routes, including one against the coverage of Stanford Samuels for a 20-yard gain.

On the other, he executed a toe drag along the sideline to get two feet in. Also, Funchess was working as a blocker on one of the punt teams.

Ento broke up a pair of passes intended for Malik Taylor while working as a perimeter cornerback with the No. 2 defense. On the first, he broke on a late throw and knocked it away in front of the receiver. Later, he was running stride for stride with Taylor along the sideline before leaping and batting the ball down.

On the final play of practice, he had DeAndre Thompkins covered up well. Ento did miss a tackle on a live tackling special teams period. The converted receiver is making a spirited run at a roster spot.

CB Jaire Alexander

The second-team All-Pro got his hands on two different passes thrown by Aaron Rodgers. On the first, he knocked away an attempt to Allen Lazard over the middle. Later, he stuck with Davante Adams and swatted away Rodgers’ attempt to squeeze the ball to his favorite receiver along the sideline. In typical Alexander fashion, he waltzed around the field to celebrate the play. He looks to be in midseason form.

TE Robert Tonyan

Tonyan just keeps catching everything. In the two-minute drill, he found some space behind zone coverage and made a leaping catch of a perfect pass from Aaron Rodgers, jumpstarting the drive with a gain of over 20 yards. Later, he made an easy catch on a staple bootleg call and picked up at least 10 yards.
