Today was the third straight day the Packers have practiced in pads, part of a runup that will total five straight days, culminating in the Family Night Scrimmage on Saturday. I’ve culled through the hundreds of tweets by Packers beat writers (so you don’t have to) to bring you what I consider the most important happenings and observations of the day: Enjoy!

BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
On Monday a photo of Packers running back Eddie Lacy went viral. It looked like the rookie back went on a McDonalds diet and gained 30 pounds over night.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy cleared things up today and said that Lacy is in shape and wouldn’t be playing if he wasn’t.
“Going through the conditioning test, he was fine. If we had any concern about any guys they wouldn’t...
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was asked this past week about Randall Cobb’s problems with dropping passes. It’s something that happened last year and has carried over.
“Randall Cobb catches the football very well,” McCarthy said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “He might drop a ball. I don’t know if there’s a concern. But it’s something we spend a lot...
Eddie Lacy responded to the unflattering photo of him on social media with a picture-perfect performance in practice.
One day after the photo from the team website went viral, the Green Bay Packers rookie running back showed just why the team is excited about the big, bruising style he brings to what coach Mike McCarthy hopes is a revitalized running game.
During an 11-on-11 red...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Eddie Lacy saw the picture. Players inside the Green Bay Packers locker room saw it too and made sure to give their rookie running back a hard time about it.
Lacy didn't care. Yeah, that particular photo doesn't make the 5-foot-11, 230-pounder look good, but Lacy knows it's not an accurate representation of the condition that he's in.
On Monday, a photo (above) that made its way around the Internet on Monday igniting a firestorm of fat jokes seems to show that Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy may have packed on a few tens of pounds during the offseason and showed up to training camp terribly out of shape. Obese, even. [...]The post Packers head coach Mike McCarthy disputes notion that Eddie Lacy is fat...
Moments after lamenting errant shotgun snaps and one JV-level botched toss coach Mike McCarthy was asked about Randall Cobb.
The Green Bay Packers wide receiver may be a rising star a future All-Pro. But one problem from 2012 has spilled into the first week of training camp — the occasional bout of butterfingers.
Cobb? Drops? McCarthy swats the question away.
Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy received a ton of scrutiny on Monday when a photo of him catching a pass, while looking extremely chubby surfaced on the web.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy came to Lacy’s rescue on Tuesday, and told reporters “that photos are deceiving, and that Lacy is in good enough shape to do what the Packers need him to do.”
Randall Cobb is supposed to have next in a great lineage of Packers receivers.
Cobb’s Maturation was one of the reason the Packers were so comfortable letting Greg Jennings walk for nothing.
The Packers still have a strong receiving core, but according to the Journal Sentinel, Cobb’s penchant for dropping the football could become a real issue.
Cobb who only had 10 drops all...

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told the media that Randall Cobb would be their kick returner if the season started today, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
Our return game, someone has to step up there. Randall Cobb has been excellent. If we played a game tomorrow, Randall Cobb would be my returner.
It sounds like there’s a chance Cobb could be...

Cobb remains the Packers top kick return man
The Green Bay Packers entered this year’s training camp with several position battles promising to stand out. The running back competition, the battle for the starting safety position opposite Morgan Burnett and the defensive line, to name a few.
One of the battles that has taken a bit of a backseat is at kick returner. It’s interesting...
Randall Cobb is expected to be the team’s No. 1 wide receiver this season
I don’t care if it means re-signing Roell Preston, Allen Rossum or Desmond Howard, the Green Bay Packers can’t go into the season with Randall Cobb as their No. 1 return man. Unfortunately, it’s not hard to picture No. 18 fielding kickoffs and punts against the 49ers in week 1. That’s because GM Ted...
