WitP: Green, Salas

Via the Green Bay Press Gazette, Alex Green talks about taking kicks out of the endzone and improving at running back:

Green may be blocking punts too.
Punt rushers have blocked at least one punt in practice every day this week, with rookie running backs Brandon Saine and Alex Green both doing so on Wednesday. McCarthy attributed the blocks to technique errors by the blockers, which is a bit unsettling, but from the other side it’s encouraging for young players to make an impact like that.

“It’s good to see a young guy flash that kind of ability, because we haven’t had a lot of time with these guys,” McCarthy said. “When you see someone new do that, it’s definitely a positive.”
And here's Greg Salas putting on eye black.
RamsHerd.com also has a review of his preseason debut:
Salas was able to create separation consistently on those three plays, while working against a practice-squad cornerback named Chris Hawkins, but it's no different than the way he's looked in practice going up against the Rams' first and second teamers. He has outstanding body control and showed resilient hands after the initial drop.
