Green Bay beat Philadelphia 24-9. RG Don Barclay was carried off with an ankle injury. They won't play again until a week from Saturday when they face the Washington Redskins in Washington, D.C.

Rookie QB Taysom Hill was the unknown factor, but it may not be that way for long. He added two rushes for 14 yards to tie former BYU teammate Jamaal Williams for most rushing yards by a Packer on Thursday.

The score was part of 17 unanswered points in the second quarter.

The Packers practiced for just 1 hour and 45 minutes, their shortest open practice of training camp.

Wentz targeted Agholor on a two-point conversion attempt following the touchdown.

No Aaron Rodgers or Jordy Nelson tonight. Jordan Hicks suffered a broken hand in the off-season but wants to play in the preseason opener.
