GREEN BAY - There's some good and some bad (or good, based on your perspective) at the start of Packers practice today when it comes to some injured Packers and their status,according to reports.
Wide receiver Randall Cobb looks like he won't have as much time on the field during the padded practice.

Even this fact, as the Journal Sentinel's Tyler Dunne conveys, could be seen as positive - since they know the Packers' offense and get timing with Aaron Rodgers, and the youngsters at the position don't.
Some better news came on the offensive line - both for who's healthy and how it will better crystallize offensive line battles in camp.

T.J. Lang back in pads, so now we should get a better idea of where things stand at right tackle with Barclay and Newhouse.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) August 14, 2013
There was mixed news on the running back front, too.
