Bits and pieces from Rob Demovsky and Pete Dougherty about today's open OTA practice:

• The full did-not-practice list: Green, Woodson, Peprah, Kuhn, Matthews, Zombo, Jo. Jones, Brooks, Daniels, Muir, Sherrod, Quarless, Jennings, Finley and Guy.

• FB Jon Hoese, C Sampson Genus returned to OTA practice.

• Rookie Andrew Datko worked at right tackle more this week. Had been more at LT last week when Newhouse was out.

• Erik Walden and Dezman Moses continued to work at ROLB with Matthews out.

• With LT Newhouse back after missing first two weeks of OTAs, No. 1 o-line intact for first time this offseason.

• DJ Williams had a one-handed catch down the sideline over MD Jennings from Rodgers in team drills.

• An interception by Tramon Williams was wiped out by an offsides penalty. Rodgers threw it up for grabs because of the flag.

• Packers have to like Williams being aggressive going for balls. The nerve damage in his shoulder, which he talked about last fall, is healing.

• If Sam Shields is losing ground to rookie Casey Hayward or Devon House, there's no sign of it.

• Woodson hasn't worked much if at all during OTAs. Finley there but only watching; he practiced in last week's open OTA.

• Marshall Newhouse back practicing.

• Clay Matthews is doing jog through but doesn't have a helmet on. He felt some tightness last week and dropped out.

From Mike McCarthy's postpractice news conference:

• On Tramon Williams: He looks stronger, explosive. That was a significant injury he suffered, played on it and bothered him.

• On RBs: I don't think you can really assess any position without pads. This time of year is evaluate movement skill, fine motor skills.

• On next week's minicamp: The timing of it now is it's really just an extension of the OTAs.

• On Harrell's arm strength: I think everyone would agree that Graham's throwing with more velocity. He's stronger.

• On Woodson's role: I don't think it's feasible to move Charles around as much as we have in the past. Charles is clearly a playmaker, he's played nickel, dime, corner, safety for us. He'll continue to do those things.
