Former Packers running back Paul Hornung is returning to Titletown on Thursday.
The former Super Bowl I champion that played for the Packers from 1957 to 1966 will attend the dedication of Paul Hornung Corner at Texas Roadhouse restaurant—a special booth commemorating his accomplishments—in Ashwaubenon, Wis., according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
"The ceremony includes an opportunity for guests to meet Hornung and get his autograph," writes reporter Daniel Higgins. "A variety of prizes will be given away, including a life-size Hornung cutout, mini Packers helmets signed by Hornung, foam cheeseheads and cheese beads."
Texas Roadhouse sponsors the Paul Hornung Award, given to the most versatile player in college football by the Louisville Sports Commission.
Earlier in the day, training camp in Green Bay will continue when the Packers take to Ray Nitschke Field at 10:30 a.m.
Thursday's practice represents the first such session open to the public the day before the game since head coach MIke McCarthy changed the team's practice structure.
Fans should be prepared for a shorter practice, held at a brisk pace, in a belief that it will translate to a better athletic performance on gameday. Practice is scheduled to end at 11:30 a.m.
While there's only a 10 percent chance of precipitation at the beginning of practice, according to The Weather Channel, the odds of thunderstorms continue to increase up to 75 percent by 11:30.
If weather forces the cancellation of a public practice, the Packers typically move inside the adjacent Don Hutson Center.
