Former Iowa wide receiver Andy Brodell didn’t even make it to his first practice.

Brodell failed his physical with the Green Bay Packers because of a torn hamstring, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Brodell told the paper he plans to speak with his agent and try to sign with another team.

Other Iowa football players were issued new numbers for the upcoming season.

Defensive tackle Mitch King (Tennessee) No. 62

Center Rob Bruggeman (Tampa Bay) No. 66

Tight end Brandon Myers (Oakland) No. 83

Guard Seth Olsen (Denver) No. 70

Cornerback Bradley Fletcher (St. Louis) No. 32

Running back Shonn Greene and defensive tackle Matt Kroul (both of the N.Y. Jets) have not been assigned numbers.
