Brrr! Packers, Steelers move practices indoors

IRVING, Texas – The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers know cold. It doesn't mean they're going to tough it out during a frigid Super Bowl week in Texas.

Both teams are moving their practices indoors because of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. It was 14 degrees with subzero wind chill not long after sunrise Wednesday.

The Packers were scheduled to practice outdoors at SMU but instead are shifting to an enclosed facility at Highland Park High School, alma mater of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.

An indoor practice facility? At a high school?

"High school in Texas is a little different than normal high schools," said Packers coach Mike McCarthy, whose daughter attended high school in Lake Travis, Texas. "I have seen pictures and the whole layout."

The Steelers also have gone to their backup plan because of the weather, practicing indoors at TCU for Sunday's game.

The Cowboys are one of 10 NFL teams without an indoor practice facility. Dallas does have $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium with its retractable roof.
