It’s finally here. Start making your plans, Green Bay Packers fans — the schedule for the team’s 2019 Training Camp is finally here. The Packers released the schedule on Tuesday afternoon, five weeks and one day before the team’s players will report for camp.
Once they do so on July 24th, they will have a lengthy set of morning practices on tap. In fact, every one of the team’s public practices (aside from Family Night and a pair of joint practices with the Houston Texans) is set to start at 10:15 AM central time. There are 13 such practices, all running over a span of about four weeks. However, starting with the practice just before the third preseason game of the year, the Packers will close down practices the rest of the way, leading through to the regular season.
Matt LaFleur’s approach here is slightly different from that of his predecessor, Mike McCarthy. McCarthy opened up all practices except for the final walkthrough before each preseason game; LaFleur instead is keeping everything open until a certain point.
As mentioned previously, the Packers are hosting a pair of joint practices with the Houston Texans, taking place in the week prior to the two teams’ preseason opener at Lambeau Field. Details are still in process for those practices, and APC will keep Packers fans posted with any updates.
Here’s the complete schedule for the Packers’ 2019 training camp.
UPDATE: On Tuesday, July 23rd, the Packers announced the times for the joint practices with the Houston Texans and changed the times for practices on August 18th and 19th. These are updated in the schedule below.
