Week 1 schedule on hold

NEW ORLEANS -- The NFL usually releases its "Kickoff Weekend'' schedule of primetime games during the annual spring owners meetings. But with more pressing matters demanding its attention, the league is not ready to announce season-opening matchups.

According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, the NFL hasn't begun planning for the Thursday night game that opens the season or the festivities (like the pre-game concert featuring a big-name musical artist) that surrounds it.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league still plans to release the full 2011 schedule in mid-April.
