This was a no-pads practice that wasn't even two hours long. With the Packers preparing for their first preseason game, the team was far less hostile the day after multiple fights broke out. A good portion of the practice time was spent scouting against what the Arizona Cardinals will run in Friday night's matchup.
With no combo drills or one-on-one blocking or much hitting of any kind, starting center Evan Dietrich-Smith deserves recognition for playing the best version he can of a wide receiver. With no defense on the field, Green Bay ran a fake field goal with punter Tim Masthay rolling out and finding Dietrich-Smith deep downfield for a touchdown. It was a good throw by Masthay (who had a TD throw in an actual game last season) and a show of good hands by Dietrich-Smith to haul it in.
