IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are moving their Super Bowl practices indoors because of snow, ice and freezing temperatures.

The Packers were scheduled to practice outdoors at SMU but instead are shifting to a local high school that has an enclosed facility.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says Wednesday he's not concerned about the change.

Green Bay's opponent in Sunday's Super Bowl, the Pittsburgh Steelers, also have gone to their backup plan because of the weather, practicing indoors at TCU.

The Packers will work out at Highland Park High School, where Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford played.

The Dallas Cowboys are one of 10 NFL teams without an indoor practice facility.
