Seifert goes on to say the NFL and the NFL Players Association continue to talk about what getting back on the field for practice and games will look like.

The Packers announced on Wednesday they will not be using St. Norbert's facilities for training camp for the first time since 1958.

The Packers will use facilities at Lambeau Field got all training camp practices, meals and meetings. Housing arrangements are still being made.
