According to head coach Matt LaFleur, the expectation is that Rodgers wont be taking the field for a single breeze this preseason. This seems a bit weird, especially with Rodgers looking so sharp at camp. How do Green Bay supporters feel about this?

In a bit of a surprise, Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur has stated that he does not expect star signal-caller Aaron Rodgers to play at all this preseason..
For Green Bay Packers fans who are sitting on needles and pins waiting to see Aaron Rodgers throw touchdowns against the opposition, theyre going to need to wait a bit longer. Matter of fact, do not expect to see him do so until September?
With that stated, why wouldnt Rodgers get some limited time in the preseason to gel with the offense? The team is clearly positive that he wont be rusty for Week 1 and theyll have the ability to tighten up things up in practice.
If this decision by LaFleur backfires or not, well see. For now, though, well have to wait a little longer to see No. 12 dropping dimes in a game.
Aaron Rodgers not playing this preseason seems like an unusual choice.
With Rodgers spending his preseason time on the sidelines, this obviously indicates it will be time for Jordan Love to show everyone what hes made from. Theres no quarterback fight here, as Rodgers will no concern lead the offense out for Week 1 versus the New Orleans Saints.
With that stated, Love was the first-round choice in the 2020 NFL Draft and hes the signal-caller of the future for the NFC North powerhouse. Throughout the preseason, hell get a lot of time running the program and give folks a preview of what hell be able to do down the roadway once Rodgers is out of town.
