Packers Calendar: Petting Zoo at Training Camp

Several small animals will be part of the attractions at practice on Sunday in Green Bay.

The second day of training camp in Green Bay opens with less uncertainty.

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson is under contract and both he and the Packers don't have to worry about whether or not he would have considered leaving in free agency.

The Packers can now worry about getting better on the football field, and perhaps it starts with getting healthy.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said outside linebackers Mike Neal and Nick Perry were "close" to returning to practice after being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the outset of training camp.

Whether or not that means they'll be able to return in time for Sunday's practice session remains to be seen.

Sunday's practice is free and open to the public and takes place at 8:20 a.m. CT at Ray Nitschke Field.

Those attending practice should have another pleasant day with partly sunny skies and temperatures of 69 degrees at the outset of practice and 74 by the end, according to The Weather Channel.

As part of the new Packers' new initiative to provide extra entertainment options for fans at training camp on a daily basis, on Sunday they are partnering with Oneida Nation, Thornberry Creek and the Green Bay Wildlife Sanctuary for a petting zoo in the Ray Nitschke Lot.

Fans will have the chance to stop by and meet a number of small animals, along with sampling some of Oneida Nation's homemade recipes.

Following practice, head coach Mike McCarthy will have his daily press conference streamed live at approximately 11:00 a.m. CT on

For those that can't make it out to catch training camp in person, the NFL Network is airing Inside Training Camp Live from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. CT with reporters Ian Rapoport and Stacey Dales checking in with live reports from Green Bay throughout the day.
