Packers Calendar: Rain in the Forecast Once Again at Training Camp

Practice is scheduled to start at 11:45 a.m. at Ray Nitschke Field on Tuesday if the weather cooperates.

The Green Bay Packers moved practice inside the Don Hutson Center due to rain on Monday, the first time this season weather has forced a practice indoors and thus, became closed to the public.

It appears as if the threat of rain will again put the status of practice into question for a second straight day when the Packers are scheduled to take the field at 11:45 a.m. at Ray Nitschke Field.

Tuesday's forecast calls for 72 degrees and mostly cloudy skies at the start of practice, but at noon, the chance of thunder storms jumps up to 50 percent and only grows through 2:00 p.m., according to The Weather Channel.

If the rain holds off, practice will be open to the public. But if the team chooses to hold practice indoors, they typically only allow media inside.

Regardless of the weather, preparations for Thursday's preseason home opener against the Oakland Raiders will continue.

Players worth watching on Tuesday will be rookies Rajion Neal and Joe Thomas, both of whom were injured in the team's first preseason game and haven't practiced since. Head coach Mike McCarthy said neither injury was "long-term."

General manager Ted Thompson will hold his weekly training camp press conference at 10:45 a.m. CT, to be streamed live on the

The same goes for McCarthy, who will hold his post-practice press conference at approximately 2:00 p.m., also to be streamed live on the team's official website.
