Green Bay Packers cancel training

The Green Bay Packers have performed a dramatic u-turn today (Monday), with the cancellation of both a training session and press conference.

Initially the practice was to be open to the media, who could come to watch the roster of players in action, before getting the opportunity to pose questions afterwards.

The media were expected to inquire about the state of Packer's left tackle Bryan Beluga, who picked up a knee injury on Saturday and could be a doubt for the new season.

Early reports have claimed that Beluga has torn his anterior cruciate ligament, but that is still to be confirmed by the NFC North franchise.

If the injury is as bad as it is feared, then he could well miss the entirety of the upcoming campaign, which gets underway against the San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park on September 8th.

We will now have to wait at least 24 hours before anything official is announced about the left tackle's fitness – or more likely his lack of fitness with just over a month until the big kick-off.

Questions were also expected to be asked about Vince Young, who was expected to enjoy a work-out with the team today.
