Hall of Fame game in danger because of poor field conditions

CANTON, Ohio (AP) The Hall of Fame game between Green Bay and Indianapolis is in danger of being canceled because of poor field conditions.

Representatives of the hall and both teams met several hours before the scheduled 8 p.m. kickoff to discuss the turf. Most noticeable were bare spots around midfield.

Packers players cleared the field as workers used a variety of equipment to smooth the artificial surface. Rubber pellets used in the turf came loose and were scattered in several spots and needed to be removed.

Neither team was on the field for warmups less than an hour before kickoff.
