Tuesday will be the Packers' first practice since signing quarterback Vince Young and the first since it was learned offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga was lost for the season.
After taking two days off following this past Saturday's intra-squad scrimmage, the Packers will practice at 8:20 a.m. CT at Ray Nitschke Field in Green Bay, which will be open to the public.
Attention will be on Bulaga's replacement at left tackle, whether it's Marshall Newhouse or rookie David Bakhtiari, either of whom will be in charge of protecting Aaron Rodgers' backside.
As the newest addition to the Packers roster, there will be an equal amount of attention on Young who will be fighting for playing time with fellow quarterbacks Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman.
It should also be interesting to see how much the Packers use Young as read-option prep work for the Packers defense, as that unit prepares to see Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III early in the season.
The forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-60s, climbing up into the 70s by the end of practice on Tuesday.
Later in the day, there will be two press conferences in Green Bay, and should be plenty to talk about, given the recent news about Young and Bulaga.
Head coach Mike McCarthy will meet the media immediately following practice, usually somewhere around 11:00 a.m. And general manager Ted Thompson will follow McCarthy at 1:00 p.m. Both press conference will be aired live on the team's official website at Packers.com.
