The Green Bay Packers return to the practice field on Monday for the first time since their preseason opener this past weekend, but it won't be open to the public.
Monday's practice is one of three and the second overall during training camp that fans will not be able to attend as the team chooses to work on schemes they'd like to keep hidden from public view.
It's on Monday that the Packers have a rare opportunity to prepare for their regular season opener against the Seattle Seahawks before turning their attention back to the exhibition games and their upcoming match-up with the St. Louis Rams on Saturday.
Head coach Mike McCarthy, however, will address the media in a press conference that will be streamed live at Packers.com at 2:30 p.m. CT.
McCarthy will likely be asked to review the team's first preseason game, in which he didn't even suit up three of the team's biggest stars in Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy and Jordy Nelson.
The status of a couple of players that suffered injuries—linebacker Joe Thomas and running back Rajion Neal—will also be in need of an update.
Perhaps getting an update will be Peter King of Sports Illustrateds' MMQB.com.
King is making a stop in Green Bay on Monday as part of his Training Camp Tour, getting to many stops around the league.
On Twitter Monday morning, King gave a greeting:
Good evening/morning, Green Bay. Good to be back.
