GREEN BAY — Packers head coach Matt LaFleur dropping an absolute bomb on Sunday afternoon in his first press conference since Friday night's preseason game against the 49ers.
Three players who will likely mean a lot for the success of the green and gold this season were activated off the physically unable to perform list.
Offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins who tore his ACL in Week 11 against the Vikings returned to practice.
“I felt good, just like I said,” said Jenkins. “People putting weight on me and things like that, I didn’t feel no pain, didn’t feel anything. It felt good out there.”
Tight End Robert Tonyan who tore his ACL in week 8 returned to practice.
“Just to be kind of in pads again, helmet and shoulder pads felt really good,” said Tonyan. “I’ve been around the guys and stuff like that, so that didn’t change, but just to kind of feel like an actual football player is kind of nice.”
Rookie wide receiver Christian Watson who had an offseason knee procedure also returned to practice.
“To be able to strap on the helmet and move get moving around a little bit doing some (individual) stuff, I think that was a big step for me. I’m just looking forward to continuing to build.”
All three players were limited to individual drills on Sunday and all are optimistic to play in week one in Minneapolis against the Vikings.
