Fairly light turnout for Packers’ walk-through

GREEN BAY, Wis. — This summer, the Packers have been using the newly renovated Ray Nitschke Field for training camp.

It’s located behind the Don Hudson Center; camp practices previously were held in front of the building.

The new area used to only have one small field — which would be used periodically during the season if the fields in front of the building needed a break — and a parking lot. Last spring, the lot was removed and the field was expanded to include 175 yards of workout space on upgraded natural surface and stands with seating for about 1,500 fans. A 75-yard stretch at one end of the field is heated to keep snow and ice from disrupting practices late in the season.

Camp practices have consistently seen the stands full, although today’s walk-through had a fairly light turnout.
