Green Bay cornerback Damarious Randall struggled with injuries in 2016 causing him to miss six games. This year, the third year Packer is healthy and showing big signs of improvement to his coaching staff.

"Damarious Randall has had an outstanding offseason," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "A lot of guys are taking full advantage of (mini camp) and the quality of practice has clearly risen from last week to this week."

16 of the team's veterans were excused from this year's mini camp which in turn allows guys like Randall to take more reps on a less crowded grid iron. 

"I'm just getting better every day and getting healthier every day," Randall said. "Just doing the little things every day so I can be ready come August." 

Despite the praise from McCarthy, the cornerback continues to take heat from the media about his lack of production in 2016, and if he will remain a starter with guys like second-round pick Kevin King now in Green Bay.

"I have nothing to prove to anyone," Randall said.
