What did we learn from Day 1 of Green Bay Packers training camp? Here are three takeaways from Wednesday’s practice.
The Green Bay Packers returned to the practice field for the start of training camp on Wednesday.
It’s always a great feeling to see the players back out there playing football. Of course, it’s only day one of training camp, so it’s important not to get too carried away with anything, good or bad.
General manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur spoke to the media before the start of practice on Wednesday. According to Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com, practice lasted for just under one-and-a-half hours.
The Packers weren’t completely at full strength on Wednesday. Many players were out of practice due to injury, including offensive linemen David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins, and kicker Mason Crosby. More on that in a moment.

Let’s get into it. Here are three takeaways from the first day of training camp.
