It's a rare occurrence when the Packers hold a practice closed to the public during training camp, but that's what's happening on Monday in Green Bay.
After an off day on Sunday following Saturday's intra-squad scrimmage, the Packers get back to work on Monday in a session closed to the public, presumably inside the Don Hutson Center at 1:50 p.m. local time.
They'll also be bringing in quarterback Vince Young for a workout on Monday, a move that's receiving a fair amount of attention because Young is a big-time name, a college superstar, a former first-round draft choice and Pro Bowler who's been a journeyman the past couple seasons.
Young will provide an insurance policy should anything happen to backup quarterbacks Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman, but his biggest value might be read-option preparation for the Packers defense as they get ready to face Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers and Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins in the first two weeks of the regular season.
The Packers have 89 spots filled on their 90-man roster, so there's room for Young, should they choose to sign him.
Immediately following practice today, Mike McCarthy will have his press conference streamed live on the team's official practice today at Packers.com.
Between Young and the injury reportedly sustained by offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga, there will be plenty for McCarthy to discuss when he meets the media later today.
