The Green Bay Packers took part in a brief walkthrough practice inside Lambeau Field Friday morning, making their final on-field preparations prior to Saturday night's preseason game against the New Orleans Saints.
The Packers will be making their last appearance in front of the home crowd for nearly a month, as the team's final two preseason clashes will be on the road, as well as the regular season opener. The Green and Gold will next play on the Lambeau turf against the Chicago Bears, September 19.
Green Bay (0-1) will be looking to improve on their showing Monday in the preseason opener. Defensive lineman Kenny Peterson said that neither the offense nor the defense should be pleased with their performance from earlier in the week, but no one is pointing any fingers.
"It's a family thing," Peterson said. "We've got to support the offense, and the offense has got to support us. We'll let everyone else say what they want about offense or defense, we know what the real deal is."
If the Packers are a family, Peterson has been getting some help from some of his older brothers lately.
"Some of the older vets on the offensive line have been helping me out with my hands and my technique, and it's paying off," said the second-year defender.
The Packers-Saints game will be televised to fans throughout Wisconsin and the upper Midwest. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. (CDT).
