Date: Wednesday, August 14, 2013 Practice Time: 11:15 a.m. (Total: 2 hours, 30 minutes) Movin' On Up: QB Vince Young This spot could have gone to several players in a practice that was filled with standout performances. Wide receiver James Jones was great in the no-huddle period, defensive lineman Mike Daniels dominated the one-on-one pass rush drills, running back Eddie Lacy won every snap in pass protection, cornerback Micah Hyde had a circus-like interception in the end zone and Mike Neal had what coach Mike McCarthy described as "his best practice of training camp." But, now in just his sixth practice with the team, Vince Young has really started to get comfortable in the Packers' offense and has gotten rid of a lot of the rust that he came in with. During an individual drill in which the quarterbacks faked a handoff and rolled out to throw a pass into the target netting, Young was on top of his game. Rolling to his left and throwing across his body, Young went 3 for 3 in the drill, successfully landing each of his passes into the small netted opening. He was by far the most accurate quarterback in that drill, even better than Aaron Rodgers. In team drills, Young was throwing downfield with much more frequency than he had been. He connected with Myles White down the seam and later hit Matthew Mulligan for a touchdown. "Vince Young is clearly different today than he was this time last week," McCarthy said. "He's progressing. We've been able to spend some extra time with him. It's been beneficial." So You Had A Bad Day: CB Davon House Coming off a poor performance in the preseason opener, Davon House concluded Wednesday's practice in a similar fashion. With the Packers' starting offense on the field in a no-huddle team period, quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed three consecutive passes to James Jones, who was being guarded by House. The first two Rodgers-to-Jones completions weren't much, getting 6 yards and then 8 yards. The final one, however, was a 22-yard touchdown pass after Jones smoked House down the sideline. With cornerbacks Tramon Williams and Casey Hayward injured, House has had every chance to establish himself near the top of the depth chart. Now he's fallen behind rookie Micah Hyde, so it could be difficult for him to recover once Williams and Hayward are medically cleared, unless House can make an impact in an upcoming preseason game. Noted: - With Randall Cobb out, Jeremy Ross was the first to return kickoffs. - In the 'Team Run' period, DuJuan Harris got the first snap, Lacy got the second and Johnathan Franklin got the third. - During that same 'Team Run' period, Don Barclay got the first snap at right tackle, with Marshall Newhouse coming in for the second. - In one-on-one pass-rushing drills, Barclay won 2 of 4 snaps, beating Mike Neal and Donte Savage, losing to Savage and Nate Palmer. Newhouse won 2 of 3 snaps, losing to Nick Perry but later holding off Perry and Dezman Moses. - Jermichael Finley has been so good in training camp that his dropped pass from Rodgers on a 25-yard ball down the middle was memorable. Aside from that drop, Finley was good the rest of the day, including back-to-back catches from Rodgers in the no-huddle period. - The four songs played during the team's water breaks: Black Eyed Peas, "Let'sGet It Started" - Foster the People, "Helena Beat" - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, "Can't Hold Us" - Jason Aldean, "Only Way I Know" Sidelined: RB James Starks (Illness -- First missed practice) WR Randall Cobb (Right biceps -- First missed practice this week) DL Datone Jones (Ankle -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 3) OL Andrew Datko (Concussion -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 4; and one game) TE Andrew Quarless (Quad -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 8; and one game) CB Tramon Williams - (Knee -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 11; and one game) WR Charles Johnson (Left Leg -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 12; and one game) CB Casey Hayward (Hamstring -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 14; and one game) OL Derek Sherrod (Leg -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 14; and one game) S Sean Richardson (Neck -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 14; and one game) WR Jordy Nelson (Knee surgery -- Out the remainder of training camp)OL Bryan Bulaga (Torn ACL -- Likely to miss the entire season) OL J.C.
