A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers news for Tuesday, July 28.

Welcome to the Packers news today.

The Green Bay Packers report for training camp today, although it will look very different than usual. ESPN’s Rob Demovsky tweeted out the schedule for the next month and a half, and it starts with COVID-19 testing today.

There will be tests today, tomorrow, and Friday, before the acclimatization period begins on August 3.

So, Packers training camp (kind of) gets underway today, although it will be a while before the players are on the practice field.
