Believe it or not, at the end of the day the Green Bay Packers will have conducted seven open practices so far in their 2018 training camp. Not counting Family Night tomorrow, the team has 14 such practices this summer, meaning that the unofficial halfway point of camp is already here.
Of course, preseason games have not yet begun, but when they do — less than one week from now — the Packers begin to practice privately inside the Don Hutson Center to install gameplans. It is for that reason that the next four weeks feature just seven open practices compared to seven over the last week and a half.
In those open sessions, Packers fans will hope to see more plays like the one Aaron Rodgers made on Thursday. With just seconds remaining in a two-minute drill period and facing a fourth down from the 26-yard line, Rodgers drew a defensive player offside before unleashing an absurd touchdown pass to Geronimo Allison while still looking to the opposite side of the field. Based on media descriptions of the play, it’s the kind of snap that would be talked about for decades if it happened in a game. Here’s hoping that the team eventually releases video of it sometime.
For now, however, we’ll have to remain content with updates from Packers media as the team takes the field at 11:15 AM. Follow below and discuss in the comments!
