  • 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.

Jordy Nelson back at practice on Wed.

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 2, 2013 – 12:10 pm

WR Jordy Nelson returned to the practice field on Wednesday after missing Tuesday’s jog-through workout due to a knee injury he sustained last Sunday in Minnesota.

Not practicing during the media portion of Wednesday’s workout were WR Jarrett Boykin (ankle) and DE Jerel Worthy (knee). RB James Starks (knee) was once again dressed for practice but appeared to be observing only.

Mike McCarthy will provide an update after practice.

Update: McCarthy announced that Worthy is out for the rest of the season with his knee injury.

Nelson told reporters that he plans to play but stopped short of guaranteeing he’d be on the field. McCarthy said the team doctors have “some concerns” about Nelson’s knee.

    Good that Nelson is back. Starks, whatever. Driver can take up space on the sidelines as well as Boykin. Too bad about Worthy – more Neal and Daniels.

    I hope Worthy doesn’t turn out to be like Justin Harrell, lol

    Worthy should be great. I am concerned about Boykins injury becuase he seems to be a great blocker, but his is not the worst injury news.

    I still think Lambeau doesn’t give us any home field advantage. I’m suprised at how many players are saying they would rather be on the road. Recent history shows Lambeau isn’t the same home field it used to be.

    I want Jordy to play because he has proven himself a great player. On the flip-side, I don’t want to risk a career ending injury if he isn’t up to it at this point. Too much hard and drive can do that to a player. I am glad that it isn’t my call to make.

    Oops! I meant too much heart. We all know that he has heart and drive.

    Good to hear Jordy and Cobb are practicing…hope they’re productive on Sat night, but I believe they will!!

    Jordy will miss the game…”Some concerns” is coach talk for them taking the usual cautious approach which is not risking player safety. Get well J, you’ll come up big against the niners!!! #87=White Thunder

    Rick don’t seem so negative. When Driver is used properly he tends to come up big. Starks may not be the best runner we have but he certainly fights for every yard.

    Driver has made some big catches when others were dropping the ball. They should give the guy some playing time this Sat. since Nelson and Cobb are both coming off injuries and probably won’t be at 100%.

    I agree we need to sign a top left tackle to protect ” The Franchise”. Reportedly Jake Long is available. Would like to see Jennings and Finley move on and use that money to improve the O-Line.
