“That’s done intentionally here for our players just to kind of start to get into the groove,” coach Todd Haley said. “We’ve had a method or an idea of how we want to do things, and I feel like we’ve stayed with that. Part of that was to move into an in-season type preparation going into game number four.
Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy cut Monday’s practice 25 minutes short, as he readies his team for a short-week, preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs.
In Kansas City, Todd Haley is investing heavily in the conditioning of his team and focusing on the season opener against Buffalo rather than the specific matchups of the preseason. This may play out as the best course of action, but the Chiefs are 0-3 and have generated little to zero offense in their three outings.
“I’m excited about Brandon. I’ve been excited. He’s a guy that was here when we got here, took a little adjustment period, but has been nothing but on board with the way we’re doing things. He’s a tough, competitive guy that has been one of the consistent players for us throughout this two-year period. Now, this is an opportunity for him. I know he’s excited about this year to take another step. He’s working hard, had a little setback there for a couple days, unable to play in the game, but he’s back out there this week. I know he’s excited, I know our coaches are excited, I know our players are excited. He’s a core player on this team and I’m looking and excited to see him play his best year yet.”
