#Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac on rookie defensive end Jerel Worthy:
"I think like any rookie, he’s an energetic kid out there. He’s got a ton of energy, he loves football, sometimes he’s just a wild guy running out there where he doesn’t really have a plan. We put together a plan for him and just like any young rookie, sometimes they get out there and he wants to please so much and play too hard that sometimes he’s running out there without thinking too much. I’d rather have it that way than the other way, where you’re going, ‘C’mon, you’ve got to bust your ass.’ You don’t need to do that with him. He plays hard, he loved the game, it’s just he has to take his game to the next elvel. The worst thing you can do is try to speed that along too much. Because he is still a rookie out there. If you give him too much information … if you try to force that in on him too fast, you can actually hurt his production.
"There’s nothing like playing time, and seeing it on the field and doing it at game speed. Preseason is not so much game speed as it is in the regular season. There’s just no substitute for that experience.
"He understands that as things tighten up and it’s coming down to the nitty gritty. We’re going to put our guys out there that are producing the most. He’s going to be part of a rotation, that’s what makes it nice. … hopefully we’ll have those five, six guys and we can keep a rotation going in there. We’ve just got to keep on rolling. I think competition makes everyone stronger."
