Blue chips & cow chips for Packers' Tuesday training camp practice

  • Ryan Grant -- After missing about a week's worth of training camp, Grant appeared to pick up where he left off last season. He stepped right in with the first team and made his presence felt today. "Ryan Grant and Brandon Jackson seemed to split carries with the first team but Grant appeared to be 1A," writes Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He looked decent -- seems a bit bigger than the end of last season -- and took a few good hits, including one from Nick Barnett. Grant did have a touchdown where he fought through a few tackles."

The solid red chip performers:

  • James Jones -- Despite a less than spectacular performance by the offense and especially the quarterbacks during Sunday's scrimmage, it looks like at least Jones has bounced back. He had a drop in the scrimmage, but made up for it with spectacular catch today. "It wasn’t all bad for Rodgers, however, during the red-zone drill," according to the guys at the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "He lofted a nifty touchdown pass to James Jones, who made a spectacular one-handed grab, to the delight of cheering fans."

And the disappointing cow chippers:

  • Johnny Jolly -- After a great performance during Sunday's Family Night scrimmage, Jolly was surprisingly absent at Tuesday's practice, and we're still unsure why. Cullen Jenkins was once again forced to play inside at tackle with the team's lack of depth at the position. I would not at all be surprised if the Packers pull off a trade to acquire another D-tackle before training camp is over.
