Morning Buzz: Packers' history in Dallas doesn't mean much
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee, or brew some tea, and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Michael Cohen’s look at the situation around Damarious Randall after he returned to practice on Wednesday.
Randall took part in position drills and walkthroughs as if nothing had happened, as if he hadn’t been benched against the Chicago Bears and sent to the locker room early by coach Mike McCarthy, continuing on with preparations for the Dallas Cowboys.
The incident, according to the Packers, is behind them.
“As far as getting ready for football games, we’re going about it like we always have,” McCarthy said. “Damarious Randall’s situation is, it’s internal, it’s been addressed and we’re moving forward.”
Nonetheless, Randall spoke to the media Wednesday for the first time since the Packers defeated the Bears last week. It was his first chance to explain the touchdown pass shortly before halftime that seemed to serve as a fuse, or the sideline confrontation with a member of the coaching staff, or the decision by McCarthy to kick Randall off the field before the game finished.
