Hall of Fame Game still on – for now

July 16th, 2011 - 8:13 am

The Chicago Sun-Times recently reported that, according to two sources, the NFL had decided to cancel the Hall of Fame Game in which the Bears were scheduled to face the St. Louis Rams.

That report has now been denied by the league, writes NFL Network reporter Jason La Canfora.

Via his Twitter account, La Canfora writes: “For those asking about report of cancelled Hall of Fame Game, the NFL, via @gregaiello, says the report is not true. Game hasn’t been nixed.”

There’s no reason as of now to cancel any games considering no team has missed any scheduled training camp time. If the lockout rolls past July 23 — the date on which the Bears and Rams are scheduled to begin practicing — then I feel the NFL will consider dropping the Hall of Fame Game, even though I still feel they could pull it off with a week of preparation time.
