Packers third-round WR Ty Montgomery has been impressive through the early days of camp.

"Strong, very powerful, obviously gifted," were the words of coach Mike McCarthy. "Taking away the athletic part of it, just his approach to understanding our playbook, asking questions, trying to be detailed as much as possible in a short amount of time," said Jordy Nelson. Montgomery, who has faced questions about his hands, has also yet to commit a single drop. Montgomery profiles as a gadget/role player, but is someone to keep stashed in Dynasty leagues.

Andrew Quarless missed the beginning of Packers camp because his daughter died on delivery.

"Probably the saddest day of my life," Quarless said of the July 29 tragedy. This confirms the tight end's absence was not due to his July 4 gun arrest. Quarless remains in the Packers' good graces and the favorite for in-line tight end duties this year.

Packers NT B.J. Raji is at 327 pounds, his lowest weight since college.

It's 10 pounds under the weight he's played at previously, a needed drop for a player who has been mostly ineffective or injured over the last three seasons. Raji will start at nose tackle in the Packers' 3-4 between ends Letroy Guion (suspended three games) and Mike Daniels.

Packers TE Andrew Quarless reported for training camp on Saturday.

Quarless was arrested for a gun offense in Florida on July 4, but his early absence from camp reportedly involved a family issue. He is the favorite to open the season as the Packers' in-line tight end.

Packers WR Jared Abbrederis suffered a concussion in Thursday's training camp practice.

He'll have to make his way through the league's concussion protocol before returning to practice. Last year's fifth-round pick, Abbrederis missed his rookie year with a torn ACL. He needs as many reps as possible this summer.

The Packers are giving CB Casey Hayward the first chance at the starting job opposite CB Sam Shields.

With Tramon Williams and Davon House gone, Hayward is the next man up after starting just two games the previous two seasons as the slot corner. One of the top corners in the league on the inside, Hayward now gets a chance to play outside. First-round CB Damarious Randall is the favorite to handle nickel duties.

Packers placed CB Quinten Rollins (hamstring) on active/NFI.

Rollins, the Packers' second-rounder, is considered week-to-week and "it might be later rather than sooner" before he gets on the field. He hurt his hamstring working out on his own two weeks ago. By missing significant reps, Rollins will be behind the eight ball in his attempt to earn playing time on defense.

Updating an earlier item, Packers TE Andrew Quarless has yet to report to training camp.

"Andrew Quarless is dealing with an extremely difficult family situation right now," coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday. "He will be gone as long as he has to be." McCarthy's words suggest Quarless' issue isn't related to his July 4 gun arrest. It's unclear when the Packers' in-line tight end will report.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Jordy Nelson (hip surgery) is healthy.

"Jordy's so consistent. Looks like he hasn't missed a beat," McCarthy said. Nelson turned 30 in May and struggled to separate from man coverage a bit late last year, but he's still the 1A target for Aaron Rodgers. Now that Nelson's health is confirmed, he should be ticking up draft boards.

Clay Matthews lined up at inside linebacker as Packers camp opened.

The plan all along has been for Matthews to play inside in base formations and kick outside on pass downs. He's merely a LB3 for IDP purposes. Nick Perry and Julius Peppers are running as the first-team outside linebackers in the base 3-4.
Jul 30 - 10:28 AM

The Packers will not limit Aaron Rodgers' reps during training camp.

Rodgers turns 32 in December and is coming off a nasty calf pull that took him a few offseason months to recover from. He's 100 percent now though, and the Packers won't coddle him at all. Rodgers has played in at least 15 games in six of his seven seasons as the starter.

Jordy Nelson (hip) avoided the active/PUP list to open Packers camp.

It's great news for Jordy, who underwent offseason hip surgery. Nelson participated in the Packers' annual spring softball game in June, and should be a full participant in training camp practices within the next few weeks.
Jul 29 - 6:14 PM

Packers TE Andrew Quarless reported to training camp on time following his early-July arrest for allegedly firing a gun twice in Miami.

Coach Mike McCarthy had a "long conversation" with Quarless, and admitted both sides were "disappointed" in Quarless' actions. Still, the Packers appear to have no intention of cutting Quarless, who remains on track to start at in-line tight end while Richard Rodgers operates as the lightly-used flex player.

Packers WR Alex Van Pelt indicated second-year WR Jeff Janis is still a developmental project.

A size-speed freak out of Saginaw Valley, Janis played only 15 snaps as a rookie. "There's still some growth (needed) there, but he's shown the ability to be physical and use his size, which is a step for him," Van Pelt said. "He's getting there (mentally), but it's just that it's a complex system." Janis isn't a threat to Davante Adams' third receiver job, but could become a fantasy factor this year if Jordy Nelson has a setback in his recovery from hip surgery.
Jul 26 - 1:57 PM

Randall Cobb lined up in the backfield 33 times over his last five games.

He saw only 13 snaps there in his previous 11 contests. Cobb's 11 carries last season were a career high. The 24-year-old is a far better receiver than gadget players like Percy Harvin or Cordarrelle Patterson, but Cobb's position versatility gives the Packers another way to funnel him touches.
