Packers enter regular-season mode

Nov. 6, 2013

For the first time this summer, the Packers will have two consecutive days off from practice. It's a rare thing in an NFL training camp, except that the Packers aren't treating this portion of the schedule like training camp anymore. Even though practices remain open to the public the next two weeks like a regular training camp would be, coach Mike McCarthy has transitioned his team into a regular-season mode. It began after Thursday's second preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. Yesterday, the players came to Lambeau Field for meetings and reviewed the game film. Today, they are off.†They return to the practice field for workouts on Sunday (11:15 a.m.), Monday (11:15 a.m.) and Tuesday (11 a.m.) before they travel to Cincinnati on Wednesday and play the Bengals on Thursday. The mirrors a normal regular-season week following a Sunday game and leading into another Sunday game. In that 7-day schedule players come in for film review on Monday and have Tuesday off.††Practice then begins for the upcoming opponent on Wednesday and continues through Friday. "Itís important for us to get on the in-season schedule this week," McCarthy said yesterday. The Packers will follow the same schedule after the Bengals' game and leading into the preseason finale against Kansas City on Aug. 30.
