Packers Calendar: Final OTA Practice Open to the Public

Tuesday's session starts at 11:30 a.m. at Ray Nitschke Field.

After a weekend of leisure taking part in charity softball games and golf tournaments, Green Bay Packers players get back to work on Tuesday.

It's the final week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs), and the final such practice open to the public before next week's mandatory minicamp.

And that's really the only difference between this week and next week: practice this week is technically voluntary, although there haven't been any reports of players staying away from practice for their own purposes.

Practice takes place at 11:30 a.m. at Ray Nitschke Field and based on recent history, should last a little less than two hours.

The forecast calls for a pleasant day in Green Bay with mostly cloudy skies and 69 degrees at the outset of practice but a zero percent chance of precipitation.

Following the day's session, head coach Mike McCarthy will have a press conference streamed live at the team's official website at at approximately 1:35 p.m. CT.

If there's anything to follow on the football field, it might be the return of players that missed practice last week.

Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Andrew Quarless, Brandon Bostick, Johnathan Franklin and Jumal Rolle all appeared to be present at practice last week but were withheld because of injury, which the organization doesn't discuss during the offseason program.

B.J. Raji and Colt Lyerla were absent last week due to unspecified reasons. Jerel Worthy missed practice after a death in the family.
