Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy is not saying how much Aaron Rodgers might play in the preseason. The two time M-V-P quarterback appeared in only one of the four August games last year, with 31 snaps — obviously to protect him from getting hurt in a game that doesn’t count in the standings. But more preseason action could give the Green Bay offense a chance to improve its timing before the real games begin in September — and Rodgers did have a sluggish start to the regular season last year, with the N-F-L’s 31st highest yards per pass after two games at five-point-eight-nine. Still, McCarthy tells the Green Bay Press Gazette that Rodgers shows confidence in how he practices — and in the coach’s words, “When he’s practicing, he’s playing the game.” The Packers hold their first training camp practice on July 27th.
