In the first hours on the practice field as a Green Bay Packers linebacker, Wisconsin's own Vince Biegel is already reportedly battling the injury bug.

However, Head Coach Mike McCarthy says the injury is minor. 

The Journal Sentinel's Michael Cohen said the injury was to Biegel's hand.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported earlier that Biegel left practice.

This was the first day of rookie camp for the Packers.

Biegel was chosen in the 4th round out of the University of Wisconsin. That pick was part of a first-day trade which led to the Packers picking cornerback Kevin King in the second round, and Biegel in the 4th.

Wisconsin Badgers colleague TJ Watt went in the first round, to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
