Preseason dates, times finalized

Packers' preseason opener Aug. 19 against Atlanta

The Green Bay Packers' exhibition schedule is set. Here are the dates and times of each game as the team prepares for the 2006 regular season:

Sat., Aug. 12
at San Diego Chargers
9 p.m. (CT)
TV: state

Sat., Aug. 19
(Midwest Shrine Game)
7 p.m. (CT)
TV: state

Mon., Aug. 28
at Cincinnati Bengals
7 p.m. (CT)

Thurs., Aug. 31
(Bishop's Charities Game)
7 p.m. (CT)
TV: state

The Packers have not announced the date of the annual Family Night, but last year it was scheduled for the Saturday before the first preseason game. If that's the case this season, look for Family Night to be scheduled for Aug. 5 at Lambeau Field.

Also, since the date of Brett Favre's "deadline" to make a decision on whether he will continue to play football for the Packers is July 27, that quite likely is the reporting date for veterans for training camp. Rookies and free agents generally report on the Monday of that week, and full-squad practices begin on Saturday, which is July 29 this year.
