New Packers to have first Lambeau experience at Family Night practice
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Some of the newest members of the Green Bay Packers will experience Lambeau Field for the first time during Friday's Family Night practice.

"I think with our young players on Family Night it's the first time they're in Lambeau Field under the lights in that kind of environment," Gutekunst said.
