Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not play early in the preseason

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers will not play in the Green Bay Packers’ preseason opener at the San Francisco 49ers on Friday night.

Coach Matt Lafleur’s decision comes as no surprise. Rodgers ended up not playing in the preseason in 2019 (LaFleur’s first season), 2020 (COVID eliminated the preseason) and 2021. However, LaFleur wouldn’t rule Rodgers out of the preseason entirely. He said he’ll “probably look into it after New Orleans.” The Saints come to Green Bay for joint practices next week before their preseason game at Lambeau Field on Friday, August 19.
