Monday’s Packers practice was set to be an anomaly in the long history of the franchise.
The practice was going to be open to the media but closed to the public, which Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports is something that hasn’t happened at a training camp practice “in decades.” The team has switched gears, however, and cancelled the practice, coach Mike McCarthy’s press conference and other media availability for members of the team altogether.
That means we won’t be getting any updates directly from the team about the condition of left tackle Bryan Bulaga’s knee, which was injured on Saturday and is one of several battered body parts that help explain why the Packers moved to call off practice altogether.
Mike Florio reported Sunday that Bulaga tore his ACL and will miss the entire 2013 season. We also won’t be hearing anything official about their reported interest in quarterback Vince Young, who is expected to work out for the team on Monday.
Word on both fronts will have to either come from other channels or wait until the Packers get things up and running again on Tuesday.
