Tom Silverstein of JSONLINE tells us why he thinks Matt LaFleur made a mistake by not getting Aaron Rodgers reps in the 1st preseason game of the year.
Read more from JSONLINE: "While Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said the plan is for Aaron Rodgers to play Thursday against the Oakland Raiders, it’s clear the quarterback’s availability this preseason is not a priority.
Gutekunst echoed Monday what Packers head coach Matt LaFleur has said multiple times, that Rodgers, a 15th-year veteran, has played plenty of football. The Packers “would love” to have Rodgers play Thursday, but Gutekunst also referenced the joint practice reps against the Houston Texans earlier in camp."
