A Packers' squad light on veterans hit the practice field on Wednesday during day two of the team's mandatory three-day minicamp in Green Bay. 

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy had excused 16 veterans from the practices to give younger players a chance to get more reps. Among those seen getting work in on Wednesday were rookie cornerbacks Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, and returning Packers defensive backs Quinten Rollins and Kentrell Brice, who are both working their way back from injuries. 

After the minicamp wraps up players will get a few weeks off before training camp begins in late July. The Packers play their first preseason game of the season on Aug. 9 against the Tennessee Titans at Lambeau Field. Green Bay opens the regular season on Sept. 9 at home against the Chicago Bears.
