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.

Nick Perry returns to practice, has chance to play

Posted Oct 25, 2013

Casey Hayward ready for first action of 2013

OLB Nick Perry

GREEN BAY—Nick Perry returned to practice on Friday less than two full weeks after injuring his foot in Baltimore, and the outside linebacker has a chance to play on Sunday night in Minnesota.

“Nick was in a very limited role today,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said. “Didn’t want to overdo it. We’ll see how he feels and hopefully get him ready for Sunday night.”

Perry said the injury, which occurred when he strip-sacked Ravens QB Joe Flacco late in the first half on Oct. 13, is about “pain tolerance” at this point. But even if he can deal with the pain, he stressed that it won’t be his decision whether or not he plays.

“It’s going to be up to the medical staff and everybody else, but I just have to take it one day at a time and see how I feel,” he said. “I may give it a go this week. It’s possible, but it’s not up to me.”

Perry, who only played in six games as a rookie last season due to an injured wrist, was just starting to come into his own when the injury bug bit again. He had two sacks against Detroit in Week 5 and then added the sack and forced fumble the following week in Baltimore.

Playing without Clay Matthews and Perry for the last 1½ games, the Packers don’t have a sack from an outside linebacker. Rookies Andy Mulumba and Nate Palmer have taken most of the snaps in that time, with some going to Mike Neal.

“I want to do anything I can for the team,” Perry said. “If they need me, I want to play, but sometimes it doesn’t come in my favor. I have to be smart about it and they have to be smart about it as well. It’s a long season. I think we’ve got the people to do it, but it wouldn’t hurt to have me out there as well.”

It also wouldn’t hurt the defense to get cornerback Casey Hayward back. Hayward has practiced all three days each of the last two weeks and is probable on the injury report. Also probable is running back James Starks (knee), who hasn't played since Week 3 in Cincinnati. Linebacker Brad Jones (hamstring), who has missed the last two games, is questionable, while wide receiver James Jones (knee) is doubtful after not practicing at all for the second straight week.

Hayward hasn’t played yet this season, having injured his hamstring prior to training camp and then re-injuring it in his first preseason action, on Aug. 23. Hayward said he came back during training camp as soon as he felt good again, but now he’s been in that good place for the past couple of weeks.

“This time I hope we hit it on the head and don’t have any setbacks,” he said. “I never missed a game before, even in college, high school, middle school, little league. I thought I was going to miss one or two, but the injury lingered around.”

Hayward led the team in interceptions as a rookie last season with six, and in his absence it’s not entirely a coincidence the defense has just three interceptions through six games this season.

“When I get back, I hope I can grab a couple,” he said. “I don’t think it’s that we don’t have any ball hawks. It’s that the ball hasn’t come in our laps sometimes. It’s best to get lucky sometimes. Hopefully we can get some this week.”

McCarthy said opportunities for interceptions are tracked, and the defense got its hands on a couple of passes last week that weren’t hauled in, aside from the one interception by cornerback Davon House, which was the Packers’ only pick in their last three games.

“We need to get some interceptions,” McCarthy said.

“Casey Hayward has excellent ball skills. When it comes to route recognition, jumping routes and things like that, for a young player, he does it very well. We do need a spark.”

    Packers.com presents 'Prospect Primer,' a video look at an assortment of draft-eligible players who attended the scouting combine in Indianapolis. Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller started 42 games over four years before an injury forced him to miss a handful of games down the stretch in 2013.
