The Green Bay Packers will begin training camp on Thursday, July 26, the team has announced.
While the full training camp schedule won’t be released until a later date, we can circle Thursday, July 26, which will mark the beginning of camp.
It’s going to be an interesting summer in Green Bay. The team has made a number of big changes this offseason, from the general manager to the coaching staff and roster. We’ll begin to see the 2018 version of the Green Bay Packers take shape at training camp.
The Packers announced via their official website that training camp will begin on July 26. They also announced the dates and times of their public practices for OTAs:
"“Additionally, the Packers will hold three public practices (weather permitting) for organized team activities on Tuesday, May 22; Thursday, May 31; and Monday, June 4. All practices are scheduled for 11:30 a.m. CT. at Ray Nitschke Field.”"
The Packers’ begin organized team activities on Monday, May 21. They will hold practices from May 21-23, May 30-June 1 and June 4-7.
The entire mandatory minicamp, which runs from June 12-14, will also be open to the public.
A number of big questions will be answered during training camp.
Who will win the backup quarterback job? Which wide receivers will make the roster, and what will the depth chart look like? Who will be the starting running back? What about right guard and right tackle? Will Bryan Bulaga be healthy for Week 1?
And that’s just on offense. On the other side of the ball, how do the new cornerbacks look in Mike Pettine’s scheme? Is Reggie Gilbert ready to make the next step?
Importantly, the Packers will hope to get through training camp without any significant injuries. It happened to Jordy Nelson during a preseason game back in 2015. He suffered a torn ACL that cost him the entire season.
Do you plan on attending any practices this summer?
