Packers-49ers playoff game at Lambeau still not sold out

It seems unthinkable that Lambeau Field wouldn’t sell out for a Green Bay Packers playoff game. Yet thousands of tickets are still available for Sunday’s wild-card game against the 49ers.

The team says about 7,500 tickets were still available as of Wednesday afternoon.

A Green Bay Press-Gazette report says according to NFL rules, the game has to sell out by today at 3:40 p.m. to avoid a local TV blackout. That’s 72 hours before kickoff. However, the league has given extensions in previous years for playoff games, and it’s monitoring the Packers’ progress.

Niners corner Rogers misses practice: Niners cornerback Carlos Rogers didn’t practice Wednesday. Rogers injured his right hamstring in the regular-season finale against the Arizona Cardinals.

“We’ll see, sore yesterday, better today, continue to see how the healing goes,” coach Jim Harbaugh said.

Workers hurrying to prep Lambeau Field: It takes a lot of time to prepare Lambeau Field for a Packers playoff game, but arrangements for this weekend’s game are even more rushed because it wasn’t until last weekend that Green Bay even learned it’d be hosting a playoff game. Crews are confident everything will be ready on time, but it’ll take a lot of work in the next few days, the Press-Gazette reported.
