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.

Overflow crowd packs Packers’ first night practice

Posted by packers.com on August 2, 2013 – 8:18 pm

On a beautiful summer evening in front of an overflow crowd at Ray Nitschke Field, the Packers began their first of two night practices of the 2013 training camp.

Fans packed the bleachers and were lined up multiple folks deep behind each end zone fence to watch the Packers prepare for Saturday’s Family Night Scrimmage.

The team’s injury list got a little longer, as WR Jordy Nelson, TE Andrew Quarless and LB Jamari Lattimore were sitting out. Returning to practice after missing a few days was LB Nate Palmer (shoulder).

In a last-play-of-the-game scenario from just inside the 20-yard line, QB B.J. Coleman scrambled to his right and found WR James Jones for a TD. QB Graham Harrell’s desperation pass into heavy traffic, however, was picked off by CB Loyce Means, who was one of the standouts in Thursday’s practice.

Packers.com will have a full report on practice, including comments from Coach Mike McCarthy, later tonight.

News & notes from Day 1 of camp

Posted by Mike Spofford on July 26, 2013 – 3:40 pm

Here are a few news items and notes from Day 1 of training camp:

Runnin’ with the ones: No real surprises as far as the depth chart goes. In the battle for the starting safety spot alongside Morgan Burnett, M.D. Jennings took the majority of the snaps with the first unit, but Jerron McMillian was rotated in as well. Same arrangement at right tackle, starting with Marshall Newhouse and followed by Don Barclay.

Johnathan Franklin

RB Johnathan Franklin

Sam Shields was the starter at cornerback opposite Tramon Williams, and he could hold down that spot for awhile with Casey Hayward (hamstring) and Davon House (illness) missing practice. At running back, there was a steady rotation of work amongst Alex Green, James Starks, Eddie Lacy, Johnathan Franklin and Angelo Pease.

No first-day jitters: The Packers’ three highest-profile draft picks said they didn’t have any first-day nerves to deal with on the practice field. Neither Datone Jones, Lacy nor Franklin did anything particularly eye-catching, but their enthusiasm for their first pro training camp was evident.

“It was exciting,” Franklin said. “We went through OTAs, so the nervousness got out then, and in rookie minicamp. Today was just learning and understanding the scheme of things, putting things together.”

Jones brushed off even the idea of being nervous.

“I prepare very hard, so I’m very confident in myself,”  he said. “I believe in myself that I can get the job done. I’m able to play fast because I know my assignments. I study a lot.”

Friday’s practice was in shells, and Saturday’s will be, too. The first day in full pads will be Sunday.

“Practice without pads is always tough,” Lacy said. “You can’t really run through them, they’re just tagging off. When we get the pads on, it’ll be different. I think I’ll do pretty good with the pads on.”

Sherrod hopeful: Former first-round pick Derek Sherrod says he feels “a heck of a lot better than at this point last year” in his recovery from a surgically repaired broken leg that cost him all of last season. He reiterated Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s hope that he can return to the field soon, but he’s not putting a timetable on it.

“Just taking it a day at a time,” said Sherrod, who is thought to be a contender in the battle for the right tackle job should he return soon. “It could be tomorrow, it could be whenever, but I’m working very hard and making sure that I am doing everything I can to get out there as soon as possible with my teammates.”

Neal lighter, but waiting: Defensive end Mike Neal has been dogged by injuries throughout his career, but he called this latest abdomen injury that is keeping him out of training camp a “minor setback.”

Neal worked extensively at outside linebacker during OTAs and has slimmed down to help make the transition. He said he now weighs 275 pounds, down nearly 20 from his playing weight of a year ago.

“It’s more natural for me to be at this weight,” said Neal, a stalwart in the weight room throughout his football life. “I feel better at this weight.”

Neal said the coaches didn’t ask him to lose any weight but left the issue up to him. When he gets on the field, which McCarthy said could be a couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see if the Packers employ him more as an inside or outside pass rusher. Neal had 4 1/2 sacks last season as an inside rusher.

‘Postseason is what counts’

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on July 25, 2012 – 12:07 pm

QB Graham Harrell and Head Coach Mike McCarthy

Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy made these comments during his welcome-to-training-camp press conference on Wednesday:

- “I think everybody would be happy with 15-1 in the regular season, but I think everybody knows the postseason is what counts.”

- “The (preseason) games are very important for Graham (Harrell). He has very good command of the offense. He needs to play. He needs the live reps. I want to see him play tough in the pocket, transition and make plays.”

- “It’s clearly a different defense and it’s going to be a different offense, too, frankly.”

- “These young guys have added a lot of energy. It’ll be exciting to see them in pads,” McCarthy said of the team’s draft picks, the first six of which are defensive players.
