Packers HC LaFleur says team effort in practice "needs to be better"

With the first preseason game just over a week away, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur is not pleased with the amount of effort the team is showing during practice.

In Tuesday's post-practice press conference, LaFleur said he saw plenty of good things on the field, but smaller details like the hustle between plays are not where he wants them to be.

"The conditioning should be in practice, hustling from drill to drill, in and out of the huddle. Just practicing with a purpose," LaFleur said. "And there's a lot of room for improvement there. You can control your effort. Some of the other stuff is out of your control, but you can control your effort.

"You can control pre-snap penalties, the communication, leaving a guy uncovered, the quarterback-center exchange. It just needs to be better."

The Packers hold their annual Family Night this Friday. The Packers will hold joint practices with the Houston Texans next week Monday and Tuesday.
