Rodgers sharp, refs booed in Packers scrimmage


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers was sharp in limited work and the NFL's replacement officials weren't shy about making calls -- even unpopular ones -- in the Green Bay Packers' "Family Night" scrimmage on Friday.

   A crowd of 55,605 took in the sights at Lambeau Field, many of them getting their first look at the stadium's major ongoing construction project in the south end zone -- including a massive new video board towering high over the field. The project won't be completed until 2013.

   With the NFL involved in a labor dispute with its officials, Friday night's scrimmage featured some of the league's replacement officials, who came to Green Bay to work at Packers practices earlier in the week.
