Green Bay Packers hit ground running for training camp
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers must move quickly as they start training camp.
Their first preseason game is already less than two weeks away.
Players started reporting Monday for medical and conditioning tests, followed by team meetings.
The first practice will be held Tuesday. Coach Mike McCarthy says getting ready for the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, on Aug. 7 against Indianapolis presents a different challenge for his players.
Another difference this year is five preseason games instead of the usual four.
McCarthy also says he had no reason to be concerned when asked about the NFL's plan to interview defensive stars Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers about a media report that linked them to the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
