Following a day off after Saturday's annual Family Night event, the Green Bay Packers return to practice Monday evening, the first and only to be held during this year's training camp.
Players will take to Ray Nitschke Field at 5:30 p.m. CT for a practice session that is free and open to the public.
Former Packers assistant coach Steve Mariucci will be present at Packers training camp on Monday on behalf of NFL Network and will be interviewing Aaron Rodgers.
The interview will be broadcast on NFL Total Access, which airs from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. CT.
Among the developments worth tracking on Monday will be whether defensive lineman B.J. Raji (ankle) and tight end Colt Lyerla (knee) return to practice. Both players dropped out of Saturday's Family Night with injuries.
Both wide receiver Jeff Janis (Shingles) and defensive lineman Jerel Worthy (lower back) expressed that they could return this week as well. They are listed on the team's Non-Football Illness and Injury lists respectively and neither has practiced since training camp opened.
Defensive lineman Letroy Guion (hamstring) remains on the Non-Football Injury list as well.
Head coach Mike McCarthy indicated the team will practice in pads on Monday for the last of their installation periods before starting to prepare for their first preseason game against the Tennessee Titans the rest of the week.
Also on Monday, the Packers announced they—along with the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame—will make an announcement regarding former quarterback Brett Favre at 1:30 p.m.
Taking place at the new Hall of Fame under construction inside the Lambeau Field atrium, the press conference will be streamed live at Packers.com.
Favre, on his own website, acknowledged he'll be coming to Green Bay in 2015 to have his number retired.
"I'm pleased to announce that I will be returning to Green Bay, Wisconsin in 2015 for induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and retirement of my jersey," wrote Favre.
