MILWAUKEE — Some Packers players are making childhood cancer survivors' dreams come true with virtual visits.

These virtual visits aren't like any other though. The Packers are using robots with screens on them to interact with the kids instead of having a boring old zoom call.

On Tuesday, Packers center Corey Linsley paid a visit to a young girl at her home who has battled lymphoma. Other players also took part in the virtual visits Tuesday, according to a Packers spokesperson.

The virtual event comes as the Packers continue through their bye week. Hopefully, since there was no game to watch, this can hold you over until Sunday when the pack face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
