The team said in a statement before 10:30 a.m. ET that there would be no practice two days before the team hosts the Washington Football Team “due to a non-Covid related medical emergency involving a staff member.”

Head coach Mike McCarthy was scheduled for a press conference at 11:30 a.m. ET. It is unknown whether the emergency involved McCarthy. Players will not be made available, the team said.
