GREEN BAY - Outside linebacker Vince Biegel practiced with a club Saturday during the Green Bay Packers' rookie orientation weekend after injuring his left hand the day before, coach Mike McCarthy said.

Biegel said he hyperextended his left hand while engaged with a tight end during his first practice. He underwent X-rays on Friday afternoon and told reporters the results were negative — no broken bones.

“It’s just a little cast I had today,” Biegel said. “Just precautionary, just being smart.”

The cast he wore for Saturday’s practice was fairly small, and Biegel did not have any protective equipment on his hand while speaking briefly with reporters.

It appears he avoided any serious issues.
