Packers take 'mental day' to rest in middle of tough stretch

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) In a sport where it's all about going as fast as possible as hard as possible and for as long as possible, first-year Packers coach Matt LaFleur on Wednesday elected instead to take things nice and slow.

"We're using it more as a mental day, and sort of walkthrough," LaFleur said. "It's just, you know, when you look at what we got coming in front of us, with the game obviously this Sunday, and then a short turnaround on the Thursday game, we're a little banged up right now. So we wanted to give our guys the opportunity to try to get their bodies back a little bit."

After opening the season 2-0, Green Bay faces the dreaded stretch of playing three games in 11 days. After defeating the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday, the Packers will take on the Denver Broncos this Sunday, followed by a quick turnaround for a prime-time showdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night.
