The Green Bay Packers' offseason of change concluded on Tuesday with the 20th and final practice of training camp.
All told, the Packers had 39 players miss a total of 279 practices for injury or illness during camp, according to statistics tracked and compiled by Press-Gazette Media.
Of those 279 missed practices, 101 were from seven players who spent time on the physically unable to perform list for lingering injuries from either the 2012 season or the offseason program.
The numbers are arbitrary and have no comparison for the rest of the NFL, so take them with a grain of salt. However, it should give you an idea of how players fared following the offseason installations the Packers made to help prevent injury.
The Packers lost two presumable starters – left tackle Bryan Bulaga and running back DuJuan Harris – to season-ending knee injuries during camp, but Packers coach Mike McCarthy felt his team came out healthier following the changes, which included TV timeouts during practice and modifications to conditioning and training programs.
“I would clearly say just from the efficiency of the operation as far as the quality of the practices, the demand of the practices, and the state of the team, I would say we’re ahead of last year and that’s just from the inside looking out,” McCarthy said.
“I have no idea what anybody else is doing, how that compares with the people we’ll be playing in the first couple of weeks. But I would clearly take the off-season this year and training camp this year over last year.”
