The Green Bay Packers returned to the practice field ahead of their trip to London
The Green Bay Packers were back on the practice field as they prepare for their game across the pond against the New York Giants. The Packers had almost all players on the active roster participating and at the very least all 53 players were present.

The 3 players not participating were LT David Bakhtiari, RT Elgton Jenkins, and S Adrian Amos. Though all 3 will receive DNPs for today’s practice, it is a very good sign that all 3 were in attendance.
This is a good sign for both OTs as both Bakhtiari and Jenkins are expected to get a day off each week, but it’s good to see them on the field and on the stationary bikes as that means both seem to have gotten through Sunday’s game with no setbacks. This is especially promising for Bakhtiari, who was planning to swap every 3rd series with Yosh Nijman at LT but ended up playing all but 1 series of the game.
Amos’ presence should be a relief for Green Bay Packers fans and a sign he is progressing through concussion protocol. Amos isn’t out of the woods yet, but one of the checkpoints is attending practice without participating and seeing how his body and brain react. Keep an eye on tomorrow’s practice for whether Amos is a Limited Participant to track his progress.
CB Jaire Alexander also participated today, though his status for Sunday’s game remains touch and go. Expect Jaire to make the trip to London, but the team will re-evaluate whether the flight has any effect on his ailing groin.
Green Bay Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur stated RB Kylin Hill is not ready to practice this week, which is the first he’s eligible to come off the PUP List. Hill’s 21-day practice window opens the moment he steps back on the practice field for the Green Bay Packers.
LaFleur was also asked whether any consideration was made to holding practices earlier in the day to simulate the time difference. This somewhat novel idea was shot down quickly by LaFleur.

An old Green Bay Packers friend was also in attendance today: The Majik Man!
——————————————————————UPDATED 10/5/22 @ 4:00pm CST——————————————————————
The Green Bay Packers released their injury report for Wednesday’s practice. Bakhtiari and Jenkins were in fact listed as LPs, leaving Amos the only DNP on the day. It’s highly promising that both OTs were able to participate at all following an extra 10 minutes of football on Sunday.
