Rayner On the Mark with His Kicks

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Dave Rayner doesn't obsess about counting how many field-goal attempts he gets in practice.

Yet, the Green Bay Packers kicker knows he hasn't missed any after nearly a week in training camp.

Technically, Rayner has one miss, but that was on a kick that never reached the uprights thanks to a block by Jarrett Bush.

He's connected on all 12 of his field-goal tries.

Rookie challenger Mason Crosby, meanwhile, misfired on two of his 12 chances.

The Packers chose Crosby in the sixth round of the April draft, which came as a surprise to Rayner, who was out of the country on vacation at the time.

Coach Mike McCarthy says how the pair performs in the preseason games will carry more weight in deciding who stays with the team than their output in practice.
