GREEN BAY -- Since the family is in Green Bay for the weekend, expect posting to be light.
Practice Thursday night was interesting. Aaron Rodgers looked sharp, and there are a few young players who have a real chance to make this team. I was particularly impressed by rookies Kole Heckendorf and Brad Jones.
Expect to see Jones some in Saturday's game against Buffalo. He should be able to make the roster as a spare linebacker and special-teamer. Heckendorf isn't going to be so lucky, but expect to see him on the Packers' practice squad this fall. He's a good player.
