Packers-Browns Will Play As Scheduled


The Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns will play their preseason game as scheduled Friday night, at 7 p.m. CT, team officials confirmed this morning.

The status of the game was left in doubt Thursday night after a power outage hit much of the northeastern United States and parts of Canada.

Cleveland was without power from approximately 3 p.m. CT Thursday afternoon to 12:15 a.m. CT Friday morning.

The Packers had arrived at the team hotel no more than 10 minutes before the power went out, Thursday afternoon.

Players and coaches passed many of the hours that followed in the hotel lobby, mingling and playing cards.

A meal was served and a team meeting was held as planned. Some of the position meetings were rescheduled to Friday morning.
