The mending of fences between Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers will take a huge step today.  The Packers Hall of Fame will hold a press conference at 1:30pm today where it is expected to be announced that Favre will be inducted next summer.  It is also expected that they will announced his #4 jersey will be retired sometime during the 2015 season.  Favre will be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.

 

The Packers held their annual Family Night on Saturday at Lambeau.  Over 67,000 fans showed up to watch the practice that didn’t include any live tackling.  Two injuries came out of the workout.  BJ Raji tweaked an ankle and rookie tight end Colt Lyerla hurt his knee trying to jump over a defender.  The Packers will practice tonight at 5:30pm in full pads.

 

The NFL kicked off the preseason with the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton on Sunday night.  The Giants beat the Bills 17-13.  The Packers first preseason game is Saturday night in Tennessee.  You’ll hear it on KFIZ.

 

The Brewers lead in the National League Central is down to just 1 game over St. Louis and 1.5 games ahead of Pittsburgh after a 3-2 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.  Matt Garza was cruising along giving up just one hit through six innings of work, but he tweaked his left oblique and St. Louis scored 3 times in the 7th off of Zach Duke and Jeremy Jeffress.  Mark Reynolds hit his 19th homer in the loss.  The Brewers will take today off and then open up a three game series with the Giants at Miller Park on Tuesday night.
