  • 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.

Charles Woodson back at practice Wednesday; more on injuries

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 5, 2012 – 12:28 pm

Veteran DB Charles Woodson was suited up and going through some drills at practice on Wednesday, his first true participation in practice since breaking his collarbone back in Week 7. Mike McCarthy said on Monday that Woodson might be able to return to game action next week.

Also returning to practice was CB Sam Shields (ankle), who has been out since Week 6, and WR Donald Driver (thumb), who missed last week’s game.

Not practicing on Wednesday in the portion of the workout open to media were LB Clay Matthews, RB James Starks, OL T.J. Lang, WR Jordy Nelson, DE Mike Neal and DE C.J. Wilson.

Matthews has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, while Wilson missed last week’s game with a knee injury. Lang (ankle) and Nelson (hamstring) were injured in last Sunday’s game vs. Minnesota. Starks and Neal are new to the injury list.

Newly signed RB Ryan Grant was at practice and appeared to be a full participant.

McCarthy will address the media after practice, at the top of the hour.

    Wish they had the live feed of McCarthy’s Wednesday media appearances. That’s when all the good/bad injury news gets communicated.

    Packers will win the division. Out for our rivals are Titus Young (lions), Brian Urlacher (bears) and possibly out is Tim Jennings (bears). If woodson and sheilds return for next 2 games, we will win the divsion.

    *Should* be able to skate past the Lions with key players still out or seeing limited time on the field. Get a W Sunday and gear up for the Bears on the 16th. Games don’t get any bigger than that one.

    I wish they would explain more about injured players. Like expected return. Unless I just missed it. i would love to know when Clay Mathews will or might come back.

  10. By Rick on Dec 5, 2012 | Reply

    Mike, or at least make it clear that no information was yet made available regarding a particular player. The weeklong chatter for NFL teams contending in December is all about injuries.

    most of the injerd like woodson,clay,shields,and some of the D line will be back for the chicago game. that means the last three reg, season games and for the playoff’s.thay need to be sure for playoff run thats why thay r wating so long.

    Jeff it was Hargrove that we got from New Orleans and the Packers released him prior to the regular season.

    I understand that injuries are a chess game between coaching staffs. The bears said today Urlacher has a severe hamstring and out for the season or at least until the playoffs.
    I’m fed up with the Packers coyness on injuries. My take is when they aren’t talking about your star player (Mathews), he is in a lot worse shape then they want to admit.

    Last week they were ‘evaluating’ him and this week they aren’t even mentioning his name? I thought all along he would miss a lot of game and or be out for the season.
    This is a nagging long term injury and he just needs to deal with it. My issue, tell us that. We can handle the truth!

    The problem I am seeing is guys used to play “hurt” players with injuries couldnt play the game. Since 2010 we have been hit with a lot of injuries and our team is now scared to play guys that are “hurt” I understand rushing people back causes more problems but we are holding players out a little to long, lets get some guys back in the line up who are capable of playing. Playing hurt and having an injury is different and I think we have lost that fine line in GB and it will come back to bit us if it hasnt already.

    maybe its just time to cut ties with starks. what is the use of holding a roster spot for a guy that cant stay healthy and is really not that impressive outside a few games. i say draft a great rb and some new guys to have as back ups in the draft

    Rodgers is the QB with the most sacks, why? = NO RUNNING GAME !

  19. By Tyler Satorius on Dec 6, 2012 | Reply

    Our Pro Bowl caliber players are all starting to get healthy again at the right time…Greg Jennings, Clay, and Woodson. Our secondary has tons of young talent. If we can protect Rodgers we can make a deep run in the Playoffs.

    To Mike: Starks was put on season ending IR, so he doesn’t take up a roster spot.

  21. By Mike from Chicago on Dec 6, 2012 | Reply

    Looks like our D is in good shape except for Matthews. I am concerned about our O line and Jordy. With Jennings back, Jordy’s game would open up again if he is available. No one runs over a DB like Jordy with his stiff arm!!

    Neal continues to be injury prone. TRADE HIM if he has any value

    Johnny K; Starks isn’t on the IR.

    Maybe its just me, but I think the packers need to address their conditioning before the regular season starts next year because they had far to many days off! A lot of these injuries are due to poor conditioning!!!!!
