Aaron Rouse was in the mix for one of the backup safety jobs for the Green Bay Packers. Last night (Thursday), Rouse’s pursuit of that job took a hit when he suffered what appeared to be a significant hamstring injury. Rouse was taken off the field in a cart.
Packers rookie left guard T.J. Lang was fined $7,500 by the league for a clip in Saturday night’s game against the Cleveland Browns. Lang said he plans to appeal.
Thursday night’s practice was the final two-a-day of the summer. The Packers are off today and will face the Buffalo Bills in the second exhibition game of the preseason tomorrow night (7pm).
