On Tuesday afternoon, all eight PLL teams all took a bus to Veterans Memorial Stadium in Quincy, Massachusetts, to play in some preseason scrimmages as training camp wraps up and we inch closer to Week 1, which will be played at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
The exhibitions games were played with four quarters, all on running time. Each team had the ability to tinker with their lineups, see how everyone played against other high-level competition, and give players a late argument to make the final 25-man roster. Here are a few of our favorite pictures from the action!
