Constant rain forced the Green Bay Packers indoors today to continue their mini-camp workouts inside the Don Hutson Center.
Special teams were the order of the day as players worked on blocking techniques during kick return, punt return and field goal protection drills.
Later, linebackers worked on covering tight ends and running backs on passing routes.
In team drills, tight end David Martin was able to sneak behind the defense, hauling in a 25-yard pass from quarterback Brett Favre. Backup quarterback Doug Pederson found Karsten Bailey streaking down the right sideline for a 40-yard touchdown pass.
In 7-on7 drills, quarterback Eric Crouch displayed his scrambling ability, losing defenders long enough to give receiver Antonio Chatman time to get open along the left sideline for a 15-yard pickup.
The defense had its moments as well. Linebacker Torrance Marshall picked off a pass across the middle of the field from Crouch and cornerback Erwin Swiney made a diving play to break up another pass from Crouch intended for wide receiver Carl Ford.
In one of the final plays of the day, defensive tackle Kenny Peterson was able to get his hands on a Zak Kustok pass, batting down the throw at the line of scrimmage.
The Packers will hold their final mini-camp practice Wednesday, beginning at 10 a.m. Weather and field conditions permitting, practice will be held outside at Clarke Hinkle Field (open to the public), but otherwise will be held inside the Don Hutson Center (closed to the public).
