Sunday night's annual Hall of Fame game between the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts has been canceled, according to ESPN.

Poor field conditions are to blame. The wrong kind of paint was reportedly applied to the Hall of Fame logo and wording in the end zone, causing an accumulation of rubber pellets. Consequently, some parts of the field are dangerously soft.

The artificial turf surface was reportedly taken from the Superdome in New Orleans and installed earlier this year.

This is a developing story. NewsChannel 5 will update this story as more information becomes available.
