 , Mich. (AP) T.J. Lang’s favorite memories
of Lambeau Field fit nicely with the stadium’s broader reputation.

”Those late-season games when it’s zero degrees outside and everybody’s
freezing,” Lang said Thursday. ”I always took a great amount of joy in playing
in those types of games, when the conditions are really, really bad. Just kind
of makes it fun.”

Games such as that are what Lambeau is famous for – and although it may be a
bit early in the season for frigid, icy conditions when Lang and the Detroit
Lions play at Green Bay on Monday night, this will still be a significant moment
for the veteran offensive lineman. Lang played eight seasons for the Packers
before returning to his native Michigan this year and joining the
Lions.

”Obviously Authentic

 , I played there for eight years. Made some great
friendships there, great relationships with some people in Green Bay, and
Lambeau is always a very special place for me and my family,” he said.

Lang is plenty familiar with the Packers and their iconic stadium. He knows
all about the team and the fans – and the turf that could occasionally cause
players to slip. He started 94 games for Green Bay, and Packers coach Mike
McCarthy still thinks highly of him.

”T.J. is playing good. I don’t like the colors he’s wearing, but he looks
good out there Cheap

 ,” McCarthy said. ”Frankly, in our breakdown
with the personnel department and as a coaching staff, we feel he’s their best
lineman and he’s having a good year.”image

It remains to be seen whether Lang will be welcomed back by the Green Bay
fans or treated as just another opposing player.

”I don’t think it was a relationship that ended on bad terms – certainly not
from my end,” Lang said. ”But you never know with fans. Obviously a division
rival, they kind of forget pretty quick how long a guy played there. It is what
it is. I don’t look for cheers, boos Cheap

 , it doesn’t matter to me. It’s not going to
affect my mindset.”

The Lions signed Lang this past offseason, bringing him back to the Detroit
area where he was born. He played college football at Eastern Michigan but had
spent his entire pro career with the Packers after being drafted by them in the
fourth round in 2009.

So there’s loyalty to both places, even if there’s no doubt which side Lang
is on at the moment.

”I think the whole pregame might be a little different, being on the opposing
sideline, but … I’ve never been a guy that really gets enamored with the crowd
and the noise,” Lang said. ”Just go out there and you focus on doing your job.
But I’d be foolish to say that Green Bay wasn’t special for me.”

 , who has not played this season because of a
shoulder injury, has resumed practicing. Coach Jim Caldwell was asked if Decker
might be able to play Monday. ”We’ll see. I’m not putting any limitations on
it,” Caldwell said. ”It could be two weeks from now. It could be three weeks
from now. We’ll see.” … WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and T Greg Robinson
(ankle) did not practice Thursday. T Emmett Cleary (ankle) participated in a
full practice after missing last weekend’s loss to Pittsburgh .
