Packers coach Matt LaFleur said they're putting Za'Darius Smith on injured reserve with the hope that his back allows him to return at some point this season. He'll make to miss a minimum of three games. He played 18 snaps in a part-time role in the opener after missing almost all of training camp. LaFleur said they weighed keeping him in a limited role or shutting him down for a while. "Why not try to get him as healthy as possible and have him more readily available, hopefully."

Packers DL coach Jerry Montgomery was not with the team today, although coach Matt LaFleur would not confirm the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report that Montgomery tested positive for COVID. The NFL doesn't believe it's related to any close contacts with the Saints, who have had cases since Sunday's game against Green Bay. "They emailed us and told us who those people could potentially be," LaFleur said. "There was no high-risk close contacts based on what the league told us."

Good sign that Darnell Savage (shoulder) was able to practice today. Fellow safety Vernon Scott (hamstring) also returned. DNPs: Za'Darius Smith (back), Lucas Patrick (concussion), Josiah Deguara (concussion). Smith and Patrick were around during stretch but no Smith sighting.

Matt LaFleur, when asked what the Packers' offense needs to do better in Week 2: “Where do I start?” He went on to say the Packers had “as many mental mistakes as we've had in a long time” in Week 1 vs. the Saints. “So we obviously didn't do a very good job as coaches of getting our guys knowing the plan inside and out.”
