  • 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.

Don Barclay misses second straight practice

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 14, 2013 – 4:18 pm

Packers starting RT Don Barclay missed his second straight practice on Thursday with a knee injury, but Head Coach Mike McCarthy said he was going to give Barclay every opportunity to get himself healthy enough to play on Sunday.

“He didn’t probably feel as good today as we had hoped,” McCarthy said, explaining Barclay did only rehab but did not practice. “We’ll see how he is tomorrow. I’m going to give him the full week to try to give it a go.”

If Barclay is unable to play, the Packers’ options would be to start Marshall Newhouse — who has filled in at RT in each of the last two games when Barclay had to shift over to RG — or to give Derek Sherrod his first game action since Dec. 2011.

Also on the offensive line, C Evan Dietrich-Smith was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day. Thursday’s practice was in pads and Dietrich-Smith was not held out, so that bodes well for his chances to play.

McCarthy also said CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) will be out “multiple weeks.” On the defensive line, Johnny Jolly (groin) sat out for the second straight day, and Ryan Pickett (knee) was limited.

    Dang… it seems like Casey Hayward will barely be playing at all this year.
    Really stinks for the fans not to see him out there… can’t imagine what he’s thinking.
    Hope he has a full & strong recovery this time!

    Probably should put Hayward on IR and free up his spot on the roster. Time for the stretch run and need to run with as many healthy bodies as the PACK can!

    Gman, and maybe Sean Richardson takes that spot coming off the PUP.

    If barclay cannot go please let Sherrod play.

    Some guys just seem to get hurt, Nick Perry is one of those, can’t stay healthy.

    Just cut Hayward and Perry….both guys are total busts and need to go. What a waste of 2 draft picks.

    Im no defensive coordinator but even I know the Packers nickel and dime packages are soft and choke at crunch time. Hayward, J.D. and whoever else is in there are targets that opposing QB’s are zeroing in on.

  11. By goinforit on Nov 15, 2013 | Reply

    29 Hayward, 31 House, 43 Jennings, 22 McMillon all have serious choke issues.
    Shields, good cover guy but doesn’t like to tackle.
    Williams, decent cover guy with absolute stones for hands with terrible jumping instincts.
    It is a staple of a Mike and Dom defense to fold at the end of games going back to 07 Championship against N.Y.

    Scott you are clearly a huge MORON, Hayward was almost DROY last season, so in season 2 he has hamstring issues and now he’s a total bust,drink another bottle of schnapps you idiot. Perry is a 2nd year player with some injury issues, again MORON, 2nd year? Bust? Get a life!
