Last year, the Green Bay Packers lost tackle Bryan Bulaga to a season ending injury at the team’s Family Night Scrimmage. Trying to avoid a repeat, this years Family Night event on August 2, will be a normal practice at Lambeau Field, instead of a scrimmage.
The Packers are looking to diminish the chances of seeing one of their key players go down in a scrimmage.
Last year’s Family Night event drew a record crowd of 63,047. It’ll be interesting to see if the Packers can come close to that number without a scrimmage.
The event will still feature a fireworks show and a random drawing of jerseys worn by the players. The full practice will also include some 11-on-11 sessions that will feature live contact.
