Ty Montgomery returns to practice.

Ty Montgomery returns to practice.

Three of the five remaining P.U.P. players returned to practice with the Green Bay Packers on Tuesday night.

Linebacker Sam Barrington, wide receiver Ty Montgomery and tight end Jared Cook all passed their physical and practiced for the first time in training camp.

Only wide receiver Jordy Nelson and center Corey Linsley remain on the P.U.P. list.

Cook returned from preventative foot surgery and looked good his first time out.  Montgomery is returning from ankle surgery after playing in just six games last season.

Barrington returns after missing nearly 11 months with a foot injury that he suffered in the season opener a year ago.

Roster move

The Packers made a roster move on Tuesday, signing long snapper Jesse Schmitt, a former Purdue long snapper who tried out with the Packers back in May.

The Packers have been concerned about Rick Lovato’s uneven performance through the first two weeks of training camp.

Former starter Brett Goode could also be an option.  The veteran free agent is recovering from ACL surgery and is reportedly getting close to full strength.

To make room for Schmitt on the roster, the Packers released linebacker Manoa Pikula, who suffered a hamstring injury early in training camp.
