No Lambeau Leap? Packers tradition may be grounded due to COVID-19

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It appears a tradition born in 1993 by Green Bay Packers Hall of Famer LeRoy Butler will be shelved this season. 

The Lambeau Leap may be officially grounded due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The Sports Business Journal reports the NFL is requiring all stadiums to put a tarp covering on the first six to eight rows of seating. It's also to protect players and personnel, and it'll also be a visible spot for television advertisements. 

Packers players have been leaping into the end zone stands after big plays and touchdowns for nearly three decades.
