Aaron Kampman Helps With Relief Effort

Over the weekend a tornado struck the town of Parkersburg, Iowa. It was the biggest tornado to hit Iowa in 30 years, and DE Aaron Kampman's grandfather was injured during the storm. He had to have surgery, but it's unclear how badly he is hurt. Aaron is down in Parkersburg doing anything he can to help.

Adam Woullard, the team's assistant director of public relations, spoke to Kampman this afternoon. "Aaron said he has a chainsaw running and doing anything they can to help," Woullard said.

Hopefully Kampman doesn't have to return to practice this week and he can focus on helping his hometown.I can't imagine there is much he needs to learn in defensive coordinator Bob Sanders' defense that he hasn't picked up over the last two seasons. Aaron and his wife traveled to India for missionary work last year, so staying in Parkersburg this week to do whatever he can for his home town is probably very important to him.

UPDATE:  Aaron decided to travel back to Green Bay and returned to practice.
