If you're someone who thinks it's time for radical change to the NFL's preseason, Thursday night's debacle between the Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders is a big feather in your cap.

Green Bay Packers' Equanimeous St.

Playing in Winnipeg, the Raiders beat the Packers, 22-21. "I get to go out there and still play, no matter if it's August or December or whenever, to me I'm still playing outdoor football, get to do what I love". "The risk-reward wasn't worth it to me".

Packers coach Matt LaFleur made a decision to sit 33 players, including star quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Aaron Jones.

Head coach Jon Gruden of the Oakland Raiders watches from the sidelines during the first half of the National Football League preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium on August 15, 2019 in Glendale, Arizona.


"I'm well, thank you for your prayers and concern!" Brown's ankle ended up twisting in the turf. Can't get too high on what's happened today, in the game, or previous practices.

At least there is potential depth at receiver.

From another significant quarterback injury to the latest on Antonio Brown's helmet saga, we take a look at all the news happening around the league.

The undrafted Bolton had positioned himself to be Burks' replacement. "We thought the field was perfectly fine", Gruden told reporters in his post-game media conference.

Rodgers and top running back Aaron Jones, who were supposed to play against the Raiders, haven't played at all in the preseason. The No. 1 offensive line has played 15 snaps.


LaFleur noticed, too, saying of Summers, "I thought the tackling was better".

"That we build our sports community up here within Manitoba because that's our future as far as I'm concerned is investing in young Manitoba athletes".

"He pressed the blocks to the offensive linemen, and it really setup the blocks on the second level", LaFleur said.

Whether it is the backup QB battle, the wide receivers, or the defensive line, so many questions are still unanswered, with such little time to answer them. LaFleur, however, said he'd wait until after the Kansas City game to pick a victor. Brown on IR with a designation for return, but the move would be a gamble since he would need to fill one of the 53 spots on the final roster cut. Davis returned from a stinger that sidelined him for two weeks and caught five passes for 78 yards and one touchdown, carried once for 18 yards and returned one punt for 17 yards.

"But they promoted it like they were all going to play", Sellar said.
