Packers preparing for sub-zero temperatures


Friday the Packers held their last practice before facing San Francisco on Sunday.

Eddie Lacy was limited, as well as Brad Jones and Ryan Picket. Mike Neal and Nick Perry did not practice, but everyone, aside from Clay Matthews, is listed as probable for the game.

The story is and will continue to be the bitterly cold temperatures that the players will have to endure throughout the game.

Aaron Rodgers said that the cold weather will affect the texture of the football, but some players are saying that they're choosing not to wear sleeves.

Coach McCarthy says no matter how you look at it, the temperature is going to be an issue.

"It's a challenge, it's different. It's not something that you do every single Sunday," said McCarthy.

"This is not the norm and anytime you get outside the norm for whatever your occupation is, it's obviously challenging mentally and physically. This will definitely be the case Sunday."
