  • 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.

Several players miss practice Wed.

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 19, 2012 – 12:24 pm

A total of nine players were not practicing on Wednesday during the portion of the workout open to the media.

Those whose injuries are known include RB James Starks (knee), TE Tom Crabtree (hamstring), WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) and DE C.J. Wilson (knee).

But five additional players, who all played in last Sunday’s game but were not yet reported to have new injuries, also sat out. They were RB Alex Green, C Jeff Saturday, G/T T.J. Lang, LB Erik Walden and DE Jerel Worthy. Saturday (foot) and Lang (ankle) have been on the injury report in recent weeks.

Mike McCarthy will address the media with an update following practice.

    So what’s wrong with Worthy and Green?

    Makuski was detained by the homeowner after entering an Amherst home last September. A Portage County sheriff’s deputy found six dirty diapers in Makuski’s pockets. The complaint says Makuski entered the house because he likes to wear diapers and thought there might be some in the house. According to the complaint, when asked whether he intended to steal dirty diapers, Makuski said “yes.”

    Worthy may not be able to stand up to the NFL punishment. Seems like he always has something going on injury wise. I did not see the game on TV but wondered if he is doing anything out there other than taking up space? I’m someone his play hasn’t bowled over yet. Ditto Mr Perry.

    Well we all think that the new guys have helped. The injuries are a question that has to be looked at. Are our guys more injury prone than othere? We do have to give them a bunch of credit tho cuz they have made an impact on this season. The signing of Grant needs to be reevaluated later. But right now he may be the cookie we needed on the plate.The play calling of hold tight after we get a lead I think has to be reevaluated by our coaches. Regardless of what has been said before, that thinking stinks, and I dont believe can be justified by anyone out there. Trick plays when you have a lead are not called for. So the last two statements are about coaching, so what, is that taboo? The Pack is a play off team hoping to go deep into the playoffs. So coach like it. And players, play like it

    Great Play Dujuan Harris he ave 5.5 yard per carry last week. Give him the ball 20 times bet he get well over 100 yards. I have know him since he was 10 years old he is the most under rated back in the league.

    That must be cool, Don, to have known Harris since he was 10. However, keep in mind that he had 1 run for 21 yards. On his other 4 runs he gained only 6 yards, for a 1.5 yard per carry. He’s a good complimentary back, but I’m not sure he’s a 20 run back.

    jim, every back has games like that. it is his ability to squeak out those 20 yard gains that has me enthused. your logic is the same logic the packers have been using and thats why you never see a back bust out 100 yard games…they never get the chance to do it. even ap does not get 5+ yards a carry as his stats would suggest. the ypc is a good indicater of how productive a player is and by the limited opportunities harris has had, he is head over heals above our other backs.

    I am excited to see what Harris has in the tank. He reminds me of M-J-D.

    I would like to see him get double digit carries. I think he’s capable of being a three down back given the oppertunity. i need to see if he can pass protect.

    I see Jim has no clue about football He stated Harris had a few bad carriers. On his first play against Detroit Lions 11 Yards In the 3rd quarter 5 yrds then 14 yard TD he is a break away back. 21 Yards on 1st carry of second half against Chicago. Give him the ball 20 times with his breakaway speed. He will bust lose some big runs.
    Great back and he is the future back of Green Bay. MJD is not as good as Harris
