Saturday morning was the second annual Lambeau Field 5K run, and Packers’ president Mark Murphy is seen here (in hat at left) about to cross the finish line after taking a lap around the inside of the stadium.
This week, all practices are scheduled for 7:00 p.m., with the Ray Nitschke Field gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Today, that happened to come at the tail end of a thunderstorm that swept through the area. But fans were lined up in the rain to get a good seat anyway.
It cleared up nicely and was about 15 degrees cooler after the storm, setting up an evening of perfect weather to enjoy some football practice. The players had to love the cooler temperatures, which is why over half of the Training Camp practices in 2011 will be in the evening.
Rookie free agent T Theo Sherman gets some taping work done during practice. Guys trying to make the team can’t afford to miss any time on the field.
