GREEN BAY - Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Eddie Lacy did not practice Thursday as the Green Bay Packers conducted their final public training camp workout before Sunday's exhibition opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

Rodgers and Lacy watched from the sidelines as their teammates worked out at Ray Nitschke Field.

For Rodgers, it was just a day of rest for the veteran quarterback, who had participated in every camp practice.

Lacy was pulled out of team drills during practice Wednesday because of an ankle issue and spent Thursday's entire session as a spectator.

With backup quarterback Brett Hundley sidelined by an injury, the decision to rest Rodgers meant there were plenty of practice reps for a pair of third-string QB candidates, Joe Callahan and Marquise Williams.

Coach Mike McCarthy said he and his staff will make playing-time decisions for Sunday's game during a meeting Friday.

Tackle Bryan Bulaga returned to practice after sitting out Wednesday to rest a knee, and defensive end Mike Daniels was back after missing Wednesday's session because of a personal matter.
