Packers move closer to getting all players in practice

Packers Camp Football

Linebacker Desmond Bishop and fullback John Kuhn were both on the practice field for the first time since the start of camp on Wednesday. Both players failed physicals at the start of camp, but they have improved enough to get the medical go-ahead to practice. NFL rules force both players to practice in shells for two days before they can put on pads.

Bishop entered camp with a calf strain, an injury the Packers are sure to be careful about this summer after Bishop had problems with his calf last season. Bishop had 115 tackles and five sacks for Green Bay last year and will continue to be one of the leading players on the defense this season.

Kuhn injured his knee in the season-ending loss to the Giants. The injury was originally downplayed as a minor MCL sprain, but Kuhn missed most of the offseason work and admitted recently that he had a minor procedure on the knee in June. Read more here…
