The 9 defensive players who swapped jerseys for practice today didn't tell the coaches, but Dean Lowry – who wore rookie Kingsley Keke's No. 96 and gave his No. 94 to Rashan Gary who gave his No. 52 to Keke – said: “The coaches weren't too mad about it as long as you practiced well and gave good energy.” Za'Darius Smith, who swapped his No. 55 with No. 90 Montravius Adams, started it. Said Adams: "I feel like that's part of the reason why we've been so successful. It's not like we're working."

Matt LaFleur said CB Kevin King (shoulder) got through the week OK after missing last Sunday. "I'm optimistic that he will be ready to go," LaFleur said. The Packers could use their tallest corner against Bears WR Allen Robinson (6-3) on Sunday.

Apparently it was jersey-swap day at Packers practice. At least nine defensive players — including Za'Darius Smith wearing Montravius Adams' No. 90 instead of 55 and Rashan Gary wearing Dean Lowry's No. 94 — wore someone else's number. That said, it looks like all 53 players were accounted for.

After being a bit of a surprise inactive last week after he was a full participant in practice last Friday, CB Kevin King (shoulder) appears on track to play Sunday vs. Chicago. "I think he's in a good spot right now," coach Matt LaFleur said. "I like where he's at right now."

It appears pretty obvious that Darnell Savage was genuinely surprised that Derrice Guice said Savage's hit on him was a "cheap shot" as Guice said in a tweet that was eventually deleted. Guice sustained a season-ending knee injury on the play.

A light Wednesday session — sans even helmets — featured just about everyone doing some work. Tramon Williams and Jimmy Graham rode the exercise bikes. Everyone one else was on the field.

The Packers worked out former first-round pick Joshua Garnett, a source said. The 28th overall pick in the 2016 draft by the 49ers was released at the end of the preseason. All of 11 his career starts at guard came in his rookie season. He's battled knee injuries ever since.

OL Adam Pankey, released by the Packers yesterday, was claimed off waivers by the Dolphins, per a source. Pankey was cut after the Packers activated T Jared Veldheer.

T Jared Veldheer, who came out of retirement two weeks ago, was added to the Packers' active roster, a source told ESPN's Field Yates. They had a roster exemption for Veldheer after claiming him off waivers. Backup G/T Adam Pankey was waived to make room.

Matt LaFleur wouldn't have any talk about winning out equaling a first-round playoff bye. "You know what I'm going to say, right?" LaFleur said with a smile. And then several in the room said in unison: "Got to go 1-0 this week." LaFleur has taught the local media well and with the Bears coming up next he said: "We better have our mind right."

"Anytime you score 20 points, you always know there's more out there," said Packers coach Matt LaFleur. But it's not all on the QB, he said. He lamented misses plays and missed opportunities abound in yesterday's win over the Redskins.
