As the Packers put a few finishing touches on their formations and plays, the Lambeau Field construction crew was putting their own final touches on the seating bowl and luxury boxes, all in preparation for Monday night's game against the Cleveland Browns.
The aroma of popcorn floated through the air as the team walked through plays that will be used in the match-up. Wide receiver Terry Glenn, who missed the first two preseason games due to a knee injury, stayed after practice with quarterback Craig Nall to rehearse a few routes and further evaluate his knee.
Glenn did not wear the heavy knee brace that he wore during Saturday's brief practice appearance, but was heavily taped. GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman and assistant trainer Bryan Engel closely monitored Glenn's participation.
One day after suggesting that he wouldn't play against the Browns, Glenn opened the window of possibility slightly after practice, saying it would be "a game-time decision." While such news is encouraging, considering Sherman's comments earlier in the week, it seems unlikely that Glenn would be cleared to play Monday.
The Packers' next practice - the final open-to-the-public workout of the year -- will be Wednesday, August 28, from 8:45-11:25 a.m., and 2:45-4:10 p.m., at Clarke Hinkle Field, weather and field conditions permitting.
