On Now
Coming Up
  • 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.

Long injury list means shorter practices this week

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 24, 2012 – 2:54 pm

The Packers’ injury list is rather long this week, and as a result Mike McCarthy cut practice short on Wednesday and plans to do so again on Thursday.

New to the injury report this week are WR Donald Driver (neck), FB John Kuhn (hamstring), G T.J. Lang (elbow/wrist), WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) and C Jeff Saturday (neck). Driver and Kuhn sat out practice while the other three were limited. McCarthy said he didn’t know if any of these players were in danger of missing Sunday’s game, but he didn’t indicate any of the injuries was serious. Driver and Saturday both spoke to groups of reporters at their lockers and said they’ll be fine.

Also missing practice were WR Greg Jennings (groin), LB Nick Perry (knee), NT B.J. Raji (ankle) and CB Sam Shields (ankle). Jennings is in the process of getting a second opinion on his injury, which has forced him to miss the last three games. Raji is scheduled to do rehab work and perhaps practice on a limited basis on Thursday. McCarthy said Perry and Shields are not ready to test their injuries on Thursday and will be re-evaluated Friday, an indication they’ll both miss another game.

TE Jermichael Finley (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice, but he has played the last two weeks while listed on the injury report. QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) was a full participant in practice.

    i just want to congratulate our Packers for kicking some serious butt these last few weeks and i wanna se more and more. I love the fact that we are so deep in our positions and our “backups” are so strong and relentless. We won the Super Bowl with our “backups” and we can do it again!!

    GO PACK GO!!

    I’m a disabled Vietnam veteran. My son-in-law got us tickets for Sundays game, but I have problems walking, I use two crutches and our seats are in section 106, row 41, seats 5 & 6. Will I be able to get to those seats without bothering anyone? Also where do I put my crutches during the game, under our seats? I’m on water pills for my heart and need to use the rest room quite regular but I don’t want to bother anyone, getting in and out of the row. Should I turn down the opportunity to see the Packers, or should I just go and see what happens? I don’t want to hurt my son-in-laws feelings by turning down the chance to see our GREAT GREEN BAY PACKERS because of my handicaps.

    What do I do…..

    Roger, I would go. You need to experience this. I would talk to the people on the end of the row, and ask politely if they would switch seats with you so you wouldn’t bother them so much. Even if they won’t, seat 5 isn’t far in.

    Good luck.

    It is caring comments from true Packers fans that makes me proud no matter where I am currently living to say that I am a Packer fan. I love the comments about our positions being so deep with talent that even when we have significant injuries – we prevail and win games. It is an excellent example to our young and upcoming athletes and I am very proud to be from Wisconsin and will forever be a Packer fan !
