The offseason training program began two weeks ago in Green Bay but included strictly strength and conditioning.
Starting Monday, the Packers can actually start to begin incorporating football drills into their workouts as part of Phase 2 of the training program.
For the first time, players are allowed to work with their position coaches. They're still prevented from wearing helmets, doing one-on-one drills and offense vs. defense at this point on the calendar, but they can work on technique. Players are limited to on-field work for a maximum of 90 minutes per day.
This will be important for a player like Julius Peppers, who is will be working with the linebackers group in Green Bay. Peppers will have his first on-field interaction with linebackers coach Winston Moss and assistant Scott McCurley this week.
The Packers don't publish a list of dates and times they practice, but Monday represents the first day Phase 2 can begin. During Phase 1, the Packers chose not to begin their program until a Tuesday since rules limit them to practicing only four days per week and not on the weekends.
Strength and conditioning continues as normal for up to two hours per day.
