Packers open preseason slate on national TV

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

The Packers will open the preseason early this year -- with a national television game at San Diego. ESPN will show the opener against the Chargers on Thursday, Aug. 9. That means training camp likely will open a few days earlier than usual. In the past, when the preseason opener has been on a Saturday, training camp opened two Saturdays earlier. NFL rules state that a team can report to camp 15 days prior to the first preseason game, including one day for physicals. That means the Packers likely will report to camp on July 25 and practice for the first time on July 26. That could mean the Packers' shareholders meeting also could be earlier than usual. It's often the Thursday before training camp, when camp opens on Saturday. Here's the entire Packers' preseason schedule (exact dates of other three games will be announced later): At San Diego Chargers, Aug. 9. 7 p.m. (ESPN) Cleveland, Aug. 16-19, TBA (WGBA/State network) At Cincinnati, Aug. 23-26, TBA (WGBA/State network) Kansas City Chiefs, Aug. 30-31, TBA (WGBA/State network) The regular-season schedule will be announced later this month.
