What they're saying

Comments from McCarthy, Bennett on three healthy running backs

Here's what running backs coach Edgar Bennett and head coach Mike McCarthy have to say about Green Bay's healthy three top running backs:

Bennett on Brandon Jackson
"I love his quickness. I think he's tough. He can catch the football out of the backfield. He can definitely be explosive. There's a lot of positive things you see in this kid ... What I like about him the most is that he is tough. In pass protection you have to be willing. You have to be tough and physical to step in there and take those guys on. The kid has that."

Bennett on Noah Herron
"I think that he is more than capable of being of being whatever is needed. If we need him on third down, he can jump in there and without a doubt be productive on third down. If we need him on first and second down, I think he can play on first and second down. I think Noah is a unique athlete. He's versatile. That's his strong suit. His versatility."

McCarthy on DeShawn Wynn
"Wynn is a good football player. Clearly where he was drafted and how it equates to what he's done in training camp doesn't add up in my opinion. I think he's a gifted young man, very intelligent. He's picked up the scheme rapidly. His blitz pickup is very good for a young player. I think he has exceptional feet in and out of the hole. He's been impressive in the number of opportunities that he's had."
