    Pickett gets in car accident, misses practice

    Packers defensive tackle Ryan Pickett was involved in a car accident near Lambeau Field at noon Saturday and did not participate in the afternoon practice. According to Packers coach Mike McCarthy, Pickett was pulling out of the Lambeau Field lot when he was involved in the accident.
    McCarthy said Pickett was not taken to a hospital but was treated by the Packers’ training staff. McCarthy said Pickett’s injuries did not appear to be serious and his status would be day to day.

    Saturday notes

    Packers' security officials estimated a crowd of 3,000 for Saturday afternoon's practice, which was between 1,500 and 2,000 fewer than the opening practice Friday night.

    The temperature during practice was 88 degrees, and the humidity was considerable lower than Friday night.

    Guard Adrian Klemm was taken off the field in a golf cart. His right ankle was packed in ice.

    Defensive tackle Ryan Pickett, an offseason free-agent acquisition, did not practice Saturday. He did practice Friday night.

    Ball protection stressed

    Najeh Davenport was the only running back to fumble during a drill focused on ball protection during today's practice.
    As backs high-stepped through a horizontal rope ladder, coaches attempted to strip the football, which was covered with a slippery nylon material.

    You know, i have watched players pull out of the lot, and alot of them drive out like they are in the Indy 500. I keep wondering how long it will be till someone gets hurt or worse from the crazy way they pull out onto Lombardi Ave.
