Rain moves Green Bay Packers' minicamp practices indoors, making it closed to the public

View Comments

GREEN BAY - When the Green Bay Packers set the starting times for their three mandatory minicamp practices, two of them were scheduled to be open to the public this week.

The team scheduled practices starting at 11:20 a.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Ray Nitschke Field. The Tuesday and Wednesday sessions were to be open to the public.

However, in the event of rain, the Packers often move their practices indoors at the Don Hutson Center, and those sessions are closed to fans. That's what happened Wednesday, leaving Tuesday as the sole open practice.

The Thursday practice will be closed, as will be the team's final three organized team activities (OTA) sessions the week of June 13.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has been sitting out the voluntary portion of the offseason program, is on hand for the mandatory practices.
