  • 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.

Shields questionable, Hyde probable, Jolly doubtful for Sunday

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 22, 2013 – 2:28 pm

CB Sam Shields

CB Sam Shields

Packers CB Sam Shields missed his third straight practice on Friday with a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday’s game.

Shields was a last-minute scratch prior to last week’s game and his recovery has been slow, but Head Coach Mike McCarthy indicated the team will wait all the way up until Sunday morning to see if Shields can play.

“It’s been up and down,” McCarthy said after Friday’s practice. “We’ll see how it goes. We’ve got 48 hours is how we’re looking at it. We’ll obviously give Sam every chance to get ready.”

Another cornerback, rookie Micah Hyde, missed his second straight day of practice on Friday with a groin injury but is listed as probable. Hyde was the full-time nickel back last week against the Giants with Shields out and Davon House moving into the starting lineup opposite Tramon Williams.

“I feel pretty confident he’s going to go,” McCarthy said. “This is something that’s been bothering him throughout the week, so we were smart with him yesterday and today.”

Up front on defense, DE Johnny Jolly is doubtful with a groin injury after sitting out practice all week. Jolly has been a key run defender for the Packers this season, and his absence could be troubling against Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, particularly with DE Ryan Pickett playing at less than full strength with a knee injury.

McCarthy suggested that Jolly’s doubtful status is due in part to the quick turnaround coming next week, with the Packers traveling to Detroit to play the Lions on Thanksgiving.

On the offensive side, RT Don Barclay will miss his second straight game, with Marshall Newhouse starting in his place.

    Newhouse again….Really? We have to give Sherrod a shot….he cannot do any worse and he will get better with time…there just seems to be no upside/improvement with Newhouse.

    How is it that Newhouse stays healthy the last 3 seasons?

    Hard to get hurt when you don’t hit anybody

    Newhouse is horrible! I think it’s time Campen hits the bricks, not one lineman has improved with him as a coach!

    My hope last year was that we would have a major upgrade with our offensive line- Rodgers needs adequate protection and time to throw and our running backs need great blockers. Wouldn’t it be great if we had the best offensive line in the NFL- we would be unstoppable!

    Newhouse sucks! when are we gonna see Sherrod

  7. By OKGOPACK on Nov 22, 2013 | Reply

    I don’t know what happened, the O-line was doing great, sacks were way down, good blocking for the run game. I’m not crazy about seeing Newhouse in, but obviously Sherrod is still not ready.

    Why is it so hard to get any accurate information on Sherrod? Are they hiding something?

  9. By Scott on Nov 23, 2013 | Reply

    Well if Jolly doesn’t play that only means that BJ Raji needs to step up and actually play some football! This guy has done nothing this year and doesn’t look like any player worthy of being the 9th overall pick in the draft.\\HEY RAJI its about time you step up and do something!

  10. By Scott on Nov 23, 2013 | Reply

    I agree with others on here. Why is Sherrod not put in and given a chance to play if he is still staying on the active roster? This is another 1st round pick doing nothing for us!!

    I don’t understand how or backfield can be so bang up? They HARDLY make any hard hits on anyone ,its all GRAB,GRAB,GRAB!! No tackling!!!

    Newhouse needs to go bye-bye! He gets beat all the time, giving up sacks!

    This team can pull a groin or hamstring getting off the team bus. This team is as fragile as a piece of china. Pathetic.

    It get the feeling we are going to see .. Mr. Bush ..OMG going to need all the Pepto-bismol , while he runs around like a chicken without a head .. then runs up to the play late and grabs someone.. just so we think he is in on the tackle….

    Capers is a terrible coach tbey cant make anymore excuses for him.

    Packers should just recruit from the hospital, seems everybody that they get is hurt one way or another!

    Players need to use magnesium supplements to help those hamstrings .

    I really hate to think that the packers are the WORST team with ‘ next man up” players. I haven’t seen ONE player, except for Hyde, really step up!!!This team has NO TRUE HEART, They act like a bunch of deadbeats! Don’t be surprised if they loose 9 in a row! If they don’t beat Minnesota AT home,that is exactly whats going to happen!!!

    Obviously you all are just band wagon fans, the year we won the Super Bowl, we had 22 on IR, 14 day one starters, including both Tackles, starting RB, and #2 receiver Donald Driver, during the game we lost Charles Woodson, the Next man up was our KR and Punt Returner one was our dime back(4th string CB) named Tramon Williams,and the other was our 4th string WR, Jordy Nelson, 2 o Line,an that stepped up, TJ Lang and Josh Sitton. Both Inside starters today. We will win this division, have faith in the system

    when you lose an elite qb who means as much to his team as any (including manning, brees and brady) you have to expect a significant drop in performance.
    the disappointment is the lack of a ready back up for such an important player and the impact of their #1 draft picks has been under par as well.

    Go pack Go. U r the Green Bay Packers,nothing can bring ya down. You win with pride and loose w grace.
