A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers news for Wednesday, August 5.

Welcome to the Packers news today.

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur spoke to the media yesterday, speaking about training camp, the unusual offseason, while looking ahead to the new season.

LaFleur also noted that the roster was down to 80 players on Tuesday, which allowed the entire team to be together. At the moment, if the roster size is above 80, the team has to be split into two separate groups. But with a number of players currently on the reserve/COVID-19 list, LaFleur said the Packers are currently at 80 players on the roster.
