Mini-Camp Report - May 1, 2003


Sunshine greeted the Green Bay Packers on the second day of mini-camp, allowing practice to be held outside on Clarke Hinkle Field in front of an estimated crowd of 65 fans.

Thursday's practice was the final tune up for the veterans before the rookies enter the fray Friday.

The play of the day went to wide receiver Robert Ferguson, who jetted behind the defense to haul in a Brett Favre bomb of 40 yards.

Tight end David Martin flashed his playmaking ability when he pulled in a 10-yard pass from Eric Crouch and maneuvered up the right sideline.

Second-year halfback Najeh Davenport burst through the line and went untouched for 10-yards before unintentionally colliding with cornerback Jacoby Shepherd.

On the defensive side, Erwin Swiney came up with an interception after Martin failed to bring in a Crouch throw.

The Packers will return to the practice field Friday, including the first showing of the rookies, at 10:30 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).
