Continued: McCarthy looking forward to first practice in pads

Rodgers, the NFL MVP in 2011, was sacked a career-high and league-worst 51 times last season.

"I don't think about how many sacks we gave up," Sitton said. (And) I don't think about it as any more pressure (this season). It's all the same. Our job is to keep (Rodgers) upright and to create a hole for the running back. That's always our job. So there's no more added pressure."

Still to be determined in the next month of the preseason is whether Newhouse and young center Evan Dietrich-Smith can hold onto their spots.

Don Barclay has taken first-string reps at both right tackle and center since camp started. Barclay made six starts at right tackle as an undrafted rookie to end last season after Bulaga suffered a season-ending hip injury.

"We think Don Barclay's a heck of a football player, and he's earned the opportunity to compete for starting positions on our football team," McCarthy said. "With Evan there, I feel like he established himself at the end of the year, but we want to make sure we are creating competition."

That's OK with Rodgers, who isn't in a rush to have his restored cast of protectors settled.

"I think it's going to take some time," Rodgers said. "I think the run periods in training camp are going to be very important, to get those guys on the run fits working together, Josh and Bryan working together, T.J. and Marshall working together, seeing how the competition plays out. I think it's going to take a little bit, but by the end of the preseason we have to be ready to go and those guys have to feel comfortable, and I think they will be.
