Brewers and Packers TodaySubmitted: 08/11/2014
Story By WJFW Sports


MILWAUKEE/GREEN BAY - The Packers hope to get through the preseason as healthy as possible.

But Saturday's game gave fans a look at some of the preseason competition.


The Packers practiced in private today. No spectators were allowed.

Saturday's 20 to 16 preseason loss to the Tennessee Titans put a spotlight on two offensive linemen coming back from injuries.

Center JC Tretter and tackle Derek Sherrod provided some hope that they might have enough power to support the offensive line. Don Barclay's knee injury last week means he'll be lost for the season. Both Tretter and Sherrod sat out all of last season with injuries.

There will be an open practice tomorrow at Noon.

The Milwaukee Brewers still lead the NL Central by two games over the Cardinals.

They beat the Los Angeles Dodgers two games out of three over the weekend.

Their next four games will be against the Cubs at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

Tonight, Yovani Gallardo pitches against the Cub's Jake Arrieta. This is Arrieta's first start against the Brewers this season. Gallardo only lasted four innings in his start last Wednesday against the Giants.

The game's on Fox Sports Wisconsin at 7:05.

MADISON - A bill that would prohibit people form bothering hunters in the woods goes before the Assembly.

Approval would send the bill on to Governor Scott Walker.

The Senate passed the bill on a voice vote last month.

The measure's Republican authors say concerns about hunter harassment have grown since the Wolf Patrol.

That group of animal rights activists followed and filmed wolf hunters in Wisconsin and Montana in 2014.

The bill would expand the definition of interference with a hunter.

It would include remaining in a hunter's sight and photo-graphing or confronting a hunter more than twice...with the intention to interfere with the hunter.
