  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

CBs Hayward, House ready to step in

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 17, 2012 – 4:29 pm

Mike McCarthy said on Wednesday that both LB Nick Perry (knee) and CB Sam Shields (shin/ankle) would be “stretched” to make it back in time to play this week.

In Perry’s spot, that means more playing time for LB Erik Walden and perhaps rookie LB Dezman Moses. In Shields’ place, that could lead to a bigger role for rookie CB Casey Hayward and perhaps the first action of the season for CB Davon House.

Hayward has three interceptions in the last two games, putting him atop the league leaderboard for rookies this season, and if he steps into Shields’ starting spot he expects opposing QBs to pick on him.

“Definitely, especially when you’ve got a guy like Tramon out there, Woodson, Morgan,” Hayward said, referring to his secondary mates. “Of course they’re going to go at the rookies.”

McCarthy said Hayward got his hands on a couple of passes in practice again on Wednesday, and the coach appreciates his steady play.

“I’ve always liked the way he plays football,” McCarthy said. “He’s been given more responsibilities and he leads our team in interceptions, and that says a lot for a rookie.”

Next up in the CB rotation after Hayward could be House (pictured), who was in line to win a starting job before a shoulder injury in the preseason opener derailed those plans.

“It’s been a tough path for him to get back, and hopefully this is the week,” McCarthy said.

House, who has been practicing with a shoulder harness but has yet to be active for a game this season, could be activated for the first time and possibly see snaps in the Packers’ nickel (5 DBs), dime (6) or dollar (7) packages.

“I still go through practice at full speed, and I feel like my shoulder is the best it’s going to get right now until I get time off, and I can play at a high level,” said House, who estimated it took him a couple of weeks of practice to get used to the harness.

“I never even think about it. Today I broke up a pass today with my left (side). I reached out and batted it down without a problem. It felt good even with the harness on.”

In other injury news, neither WR Greg Jennings (groin) nor DL B.J. Raji (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday. Both players could be tested later in the week. TE D.J. Williams (hamstring) was a limited participant after missing Sunday night’s game. RB Alex Green was also limited with a shoulder injury, but it isn’t expected to hold him back.

    Thats great! Sam shields ijury does’nt seem to bad. I obveasly could be wrong though. Hayward is a great rookie and davon house is a good player. Again,the injury is’nt that bad.

    I give all the credit to Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy and the rest of the coaching staff for recognizing raw talent and bringing them in and developing them in a rather short time frame. My hats off to all of you men. Keep up the good work.

    This is good. House is really gonna help our defense.

    It was tough to swallow watching Davon House laying on the field in the Bengals game. He looked in training camp to be the real deal. A strong book-end to Tramon Williams. I hope he doesn’t turn out to be one of those guys with all the talent, but can’t stay healthy. They can be a top ranked unit with him Casey and Sam.

    OK so Hayward like has three interceptions and he is only part time? Either he is not quick enough, strong enough or tall enough to play the position but something has to be going on for him to be on the bench a lot.

    I know the Pack has this tendency to play people based on laurels and not so much what have you done for me lately. Take Findley, he has sucked the past two years but is still that number one tight end playing on laurels.

    These decisions have to be coming from one person and that’s McCarthy.

    @derrty ernie u don’t make sense because casey hayward is on the field a lot and he can’t start when we have sam shields and tramon williams you can’t put neither one of them on the bench so it has nothing to do with what hayward is doing wrong because he does everything great
