GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers will play two home exhibition games in the next seven days, starting tonight against Oakland Raiders.
It will be the first Lambeau Field visit for Charles Woodson, James Jones, and C.J. Wilson since they left Green Bay.
Woodson and Jones are expected to start tonight, and get a lot of playing time.
The Packers expect to play their starters at least into the 2nd quarter. They're still auditioning players for several roster spots -- including tight end, where the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel now says Brandon Bostick had a slight fracture in his right leg fibula.
Bostick was hurt while catching a pass last Saturday against St. Louis, and reports say he could be out until October. That gives rookie Richard Rodgers and the returning Andrew Quarless a chance to nail down the starting spot.
Ryan Taylor and Jake Stoneburner will be in the mix as well -- and perhaps rookie Justin Perillo.
Packers Gameday on WTAQ starts at 5 p.m., with kickoff set for 7 p.m.
FANS TRAVEL ADVISORY
The Wisconsin DOT is reminding drivers heading to the Packers game at Lambeau tonight that Highway 41 and adjacent roadways from Oneida Street north to Suamico are still under construction.
Officials say the 41-172 interchange could experience significant backups in all directions. You are urged to allow yourself extra time to get to the game.
Oneida Street will be closed to traffic from Lombardi Avenue to Potts Avenue from four hours before kick-off until two hours after the game. Armed Forces Drive will be closed at Oneida Street. Ridge Road will also be a one-way street during the game.
