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.

Clay Matthews will be re-evaluated Friday, plus other injury updates

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 28, 2012 – 4:14 pm

Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay MatthewsPackers LB Clay Matthews (hamstring) sat out practice once again on Wednesday, but Head Coach Mike McCarthy said he watched Matthews go through his rehab workout and the medical staff is planning to re-evaluate the star pass rusher on Friday.

Matthews has missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury sustained against Arizona on Nov. 4.

“He wants the opportunity to talk again on Friday,” McCarthy said. “He’s getting close. I think it’ll be a stretch for him to play in the game, but we’ll have him evaluated again on Friday and see how the week of rehab goes.”

In other injury news, DE C.J. Wilson (knee) has all but been ruled out by McCarthy for this week, a tough blow for the run defense with Vikings RB Adrian Peterson coming to town. Fellow DE Ryan Pickett (quad) also missed practice, but McCarthy said Pickett should be back at practice either Thursday or Friday and the coach isn’t concerned about his availability for the game.

“We’re going to miss C.J. He’s a real good run player,” said Pickett, who characterized his own injury as a bruise and reiterated McCarthy’s confidence that he would play on Sunday. “I think he gets overlooked. A lot of times he doesn’t get the credit he deserves. He can play the run real good.”

LT Marshall Newhouse was added to the injury report with a wrist injury, and he was limited in practice, but as with Pickett, McCarthy didn’t express a high level of concern for Newhouse’s availability for the game.

McCarthy also said that T Derek Sherrod was “not close enough” to being ready to play for the Packers to move him from the physically unable to perform list to the 53-man roster this week, so Sherrod will miss the entire season.

As for RB Cedric Benson, he was going through an evaluation on his injured foot during McCarthy’s press conference and the results were not yet known. Benson has been on injured reserve/designated for return since hurting his foot in Week 5. He was eligible to return to practice last week but has not yet done so.

Driver, Pickett, Wilson not practicing Wednesday

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 28, 2012 – 12:25 pm

Depending on the post-practice update from Mike McCarthy, the Packers could be a little thin on the defensive line for Sunday’s showdown against the Vikings and RB Adrian Peterson.

DL Ryan Pickett and C.J. Wilson were both sitting out practice on Wednesday during the portion of the workout open to reporters. Pickett will be new to the injury list when it is released after practice. Wilson left Sunday night’s game against the Giants with a knee injury.

Also, WR Donald Driver was not practicing. Driver has been on the injury report with a thumb injury, but he hasn’t missed any games. Backup RB Johnny White, who left Sunday’s game with a concussion, also did not practice.

Continuing to sit out on defense were DB Charles Woodson, CB Sam Shields and LB Clay Matthews.
