A number of Packers wide receivers are getting some excellent reps to prove themselves to the coaching staff because of all the injuries at the position.
The Packers lost veteran Jordy Nelson for the entire training camp after he underwent a procedure on his knee. Nelson is expected back for the first game of the regular season.
Randall Cobb also has been nursing a biceps injury and is not practicing. In addition, both seventh-round draft picks, Charles Johnson (knee) and Kevin Dorsey (hamstring), are still out.
That situation has led to a lot of reps for veterans Jarrett Boykin and Jeremy Ross. The undrafted rookies have also had their opportunities as well. The rookie who has had the biggest camp thus far is Tyrone Walker, who was playing with the second-string offense on Wednesday. Walker had a big game against Arizona in the first preseason game when he had five receptions for 41 yards.
In addition to Walker, both Myles White and Alex Gillett, have had their moments in camp.
Of the three, Walker has the best chance of making the final roster, but that will probably only happen if the team keeps six wide receivers.
