NFL forces Packer rookie running back out of mini-camp

Email

The Green Bay Packers will open their first full mini-camp Friday without their second-round draft choice.

The NFL's Management Council has ordered Nebraska running back Brandon Jackson to stay away.

That's because they want him in Los Angeles for the Reebok Rookie Premier event, in which top rookies pose for playing cards and start working on endorsement deals.

It's a huge honor and not every draft choice gets to go.
