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.

Derek Sherrod, Casey Hayward both practicing

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 16, 2013 – 5:29 pm

T Derek Sherrod participated in practice for the first time this season on Wednesday, which begins a three-week window during which he can practice without being on the 53-man roster.

Sherrod was placed on reserve/physically unable to perform toward the end of training camp, the second straight camp he missed while rehabbing a leg in which he broke multiple bones back in Week 15 of 2011in Kansas City.

That’s the last time Sherrod was in pads, and he’ll put the pads back on Thursday for the first time in 22 months as he continues what has been a long road back.

“It will be great to see that,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said.

The process will remain gradual, however.

“The individual work will be good for him. How we integrate him into the team work is something we’ve talked about,” McCarthy said.

“We’re not just going to roll him out there and say, hey, let’s go play 55 snaps in pads. I don’t think that’s really smart, especially after what he’s been through and the path he had to take to get to this point. We will break him in and push him as hard as we can and just be smart.”

With his three-week window to come off PUP underway, Sherrod will have to be added to the active roster by the start of Week 10 if he’s to play this season. Last year, he tried to practice around midseason for a few days but was never activated from PUP and missed the entire year.

During the portion of practice open to the media, Sherrod physically was moving around far better than at any time last season. Having gone through multiple surgeries since the injury, progress has been slow but evident.

“I feel really good just to be able to do everything out there with my teammates,” he said. “It was a pretty tough deal, but I was keeping my head up and pushing myself each and every single day, making sure I was going to be able to get to this point.”

CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) was also practicing on Wednesday, listed as a limited participant on the official injury report. Two weeks ago, Hayward practiced on a Thursday, then last week he practiced on Thursday and Friday. This was his first Wednesday practice, meaning this could be the first week he participates in all the workouts if he has no setbacks.

There’s no official word on when he’ll be available to play, but he’s obviously getting closer. McCarthy said he needs “more information” to determine if Hayward is ready.

“I’m just trying to get back in the same rhythm I was,” said Hayward, who had six interceptions as a rookie last year but has yet to play in the 2013 regular season.

Hayward initially injured his hamstring before training camp, missed three weeks, returned for one week of practice, but then re-injured the hamstring in his first preseason game action.

“We’ll try not to rush it back this time,” he said. “The first time, we didn’t think we rushed it back. I felt good when I came back. It was just a freak accident, and those things happen in this sport, especially with hamstrings.

“It is a gray area. You really don’t know. Hopefully we judge it and be correct this time.”

    Certainly don’t see any reason to rush these guys back. They will be better off long term to be eased back into game conditions. Sure would like to see the majority of our current wounded back for playoff time! A 2010 repeat would suit me just fine!
    I’m really impressed with how well most of the back ups have performed. Attribute that to good coaching of talented players that now know their jobs. I hope the fans can appreciate what an awesome system we have in Green Bay…I know I do! I’ll even admit to being spoiled.

    fire em both and hire a true champion; Brett Favre

    Fire a tackle and corner back and hire the man responsible for more interceptions than anyone else in NFL history? Sure you are not a Bears fan?

    Bring the players back when they are healthy. See if GB can break out from being the team of walking wounded.

    Hoping for a statement game against the Brownies; something like 37 to 19 would be nice.

    Green Tide, so will you be unhappy if the Pack wins, 23-16? Because that’s more what I see.

    Don’t want to “rush” Sherrod back, but there is a timetable with players coming off the PUP list. He needs to show he can play, fast; options are putting him on the 53-man roster (and releasing someone like Newhouse), back to IR for another year if the medical evidence says he’s still not able to play because of the pace of progress of his rehab, or release. No practice squad eligibility. His career might be on the line.

    Good News! I’m happy for both of them. Especially for Derek. He still has plenty years ahead of him. Looking forward to seeing him back on the line-up

    Best of luck to both those young men.

    Both are pussies collecting a paycheck.Just 2 more Ted Thompson soft draft picks.Ted sure has a infatuation with injury prone high draft picks.He has made the Packers soft and that shows up big time in the playoffs.I bet a lot of these players will be ecstatic when Good ell turns the NFL into the NFFL National Flag Football League because that means no contact.What a bunch of pussies! That includes Clay Matthews!

    what happened to all those rookie recievers we had to let go? There were a couple of linemen we had also both on the O and the D line where are they now? And now that it is to late, why wasnt matt flynn really taken a hard look at. He knew the system, and could fly with it.
