Morning roundup: Benson a big addition

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

The Packers opened their final week of training camp with practice Sunday, a day before they have to cut their roster to 75 players and five days before the final cuts to 53. But more than getting more answers on what players they should keep on their final roster, the biggest development from their preseason game at Cincinnati last week might have been  the play of Cedric Benson, who showed signs that he might significantly upgrade their running game. The Packers on Sunday had fourth-round draft pick Jerron McMillian playing as a starting safety with their No. 1 nickel and dime defenses for the first time in camp, Rob Demovsky reports. The lead of our Packers notebook by Wes Hodkiewicz is that cornerback Davon House for now looks like he won't need shoulder surgery, though he will be playing with a bulky brace on his shoulder. Demovsky's practice insider notes that receiver Greg Jennings made two excellent catches Sunday and appears to be getting down the timing he thought was missing last Thursday against Cincinnati.
