Packers news: If you’ve been following the Green Bay Packers’ training camp this summer then you know that there’s a lot to be excited about for the upcoming season. Aaron Rodgers may be long gone, and obviously, the squad isn’t expected to be as good as they were last season, but there’s still no denying that fans are very much looking forward to what’s in store for the Packers as they take their first steps in the post-A-Rod era.
Packers News: Kenny Clark ‘Excited’ to Go Against Bengals
All the buzz in training camp will now be tested when the Packers take on the Cincinnati Bengals in their upcoming joint practice sessions. These events are much more relaxed than when teams battle on the field during the season, but for Green Bay Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gary Clark, it’s an opportunity to put all the hard work the team has put in this offseason to the test:
“I’m excited that we get a chance to go against somebody else,” Clark said, via Bill Huber of Packer Nation. “We beat against each other all camp, all year, so, we get a chance to go against somebody else and get a different look and work on our craft.”
There’s going to be a friendly environment when these two sides have their joint practice, but make no mistake about it. There’s going to be a considerable level of competition between the players. Just ask Kenny Clark, who seems intent on applying a lot of pressure on the Bengals’ offense in the coming days.
Packers News: Bengals Will Be Without Joe Burrow for Joint Practice
Talking about the Bengals’ elite offense, there’s going to be one massive void in the lineup when they face the Packers. This is after superstar quarterback Joe Burrow was recently carted off the field with a non-contact injury in one of Cincinnati’s earlier practice sessions. It has now been determined that the 26-year-old has sustained a calf strain and will now miss “several weeks.” For the Bengals, the joint practice session should present itself as an opportunity to test their Burrow-less offense against a determined Green Bay defense.
