Packers receivers have big numbers in mind

"I think anytime a guy leaves a team who's been there for so long and then starts coming out and saying certain things, it surprises everyone," Nelson said. "I think it's unfortunate and we're ready to move on."

After all, a big goal sits out there for the "Big Three" to chase.

"It's a good competition," Jones said. "We're just out there having fun. We're trying to get each other better. We understand that we're going to need all three of us to make plays. And we truly believe as we go, this team goes, that we're going to have to make plays out there for our team."

And by the way, Jones insists he doesn't feel left out after specialty hamburgers were unveiled on the menu at Curly's Pub in Lambeau Field until the start of the season. A percentage of the proceeds from the sales of the burgers will be donated to a charity chosen by one of five players or coach Mike McCarthy.

Cobb ("Corn on the Cobb Burger") and Nelson ("Jordy Nelson Burger") have menu selections named after them. Nothing for Jones, but it's no big deal.

"We've got a lot of guys on this team, they made some plays, man, so you can't have 13 burgers up there. It's all good," said Jones, who also prefers plain burgers to cheeseburgers. He quipped: "So that wouldn't go well with Wisconsin people, they wouldn't even want to eat my burger."

NOTES: McCarthy indicated after Wednesday's practice that Cobb would still be used in a dual role as a kick returner: "Cobb has been excellent for us back there. If we were to play a game tomorrow, Randall would be my returner." . Finley, a sixth-year pro, is entering the final year of his contract but expressed a desire to remain in Green Bay and finish his career with the Packers. ... CB Tramon Williams (knee) didn't practice for the second straight day. LBs Dezman Moses (toe) and rookie Nate Palmer (shoulder) also were held out Wednesday. Veteran DT Johnny Jolly dropped out of practice with an ankle injury.
