Training camp 2013 is upon us.
But you don’t have to wait until the Green Bay Packers hit the field this morning at 8:20 for the all-important attendance report.
Thanks to Weston Hodkiewicz’s hustling late last night, we now know which players did not pass their physicals and therefore won’t be able to practice today. There’s a surprise or two on the list, which can be found here: http://pck.rs/13JAYYv. There’s sure to be further explanations today about some of the surprises on that list.
