Packers Training Camp 2018: Live practice updates for August 2 The Green Bay Packers get back to work on Thursday morning following a day off from practice on Wednesday Adrian Amos Jersey , as preseason action finally pulls into focus around the NFL. This evening, the league kicks off its exhibition season with the Hall of Fame Game, pitting the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens against one another. The Packers, however, have another week to go until their preseason opener as they host the Tennessee Titans next Thursday.Of course, Family Night is coming up sooner than that, as the Packers will practice inside Lambeau Field on Saturday evening in front of a packed house of fans. That event is sold out — as always — but should be a great time for players and fans alike.Today, however, the Packers start their work at 11:15 local time Jimmy Graham Jersey , with a cool but dry day in the forecast. It should be a nice day for the players, though, and we’ll keep an eye on practice throughout the day thanks to the excellent work of the media covering the team live from Ray Nitschke Field.Practice Updates from Packers MediaTweets from GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers find themselves in unfamiliar territory, with no playoff berth to chase but quarterback Aaron Rodgers healthy enough to play in the final two games of a going-nowhere season.If interim head coach Joe Philbin has anything to say about it, anyone who is healthy enough to play – including Rodgers – will play next weekend against the New York Jets despite the circumstances.Rodgers has played all season with a left knee injury sustained in the season opener in September. He said he also injured his groin during the Packers’ 24-17 loss to the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field, though the quarterback quickly added he wants to play in the final two games, regardless of the risk.It’s in line with the message Philbin delivered to the team Monday afternoon.“In the general sense, my philosophy is football players are paid to play football games Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey , and football coaches are paid to coach football games,” Philbin said. “Obviously, we have to go through the week and we would never put any player out there that wasn’t physically ready to go. But that’s my general philosophy and overall philosophy – whether it’s Aaron Rodgers or anybody else.“We’re the Green Bay Packers, we’re a football team and we’re in the business of winning football games, and we want all our players who are healthy to contribute to the overall success of the team. Period,” Philbin added.The loss to Chicago clinched a second straight losing season for Green Bay (5-8-1). Asked if he expected the team to use the final two games to take a look at young quarterback DeShone Kizer, Rodgers said that he “for sure” wants to play.Rodgers recalled thinking he might get to play late in the 2005 season, when he was a rookie first-round pick backing up Brett Favre and the Packers were 3-11 with two games to go.“I remember ‘Favrey’ came in late in the season and said, ‘Well Marcedes Lewis Jersey , you’re probably going to get a chance to play here,'” Rodgers recounted. “Didn’t happen.”Rodgers enters the final two games having thrown for 3,974 yards, but with the second-lowest completion percentage in his 11 years as Packers starter (61.7 percent). With just 23 touchdown passes, Rodgers is on pace for the fewest he’s had in a season in which he was healthy enough to play all year.“Nobody’s talked to me about (not playing). I want to play, though, so I’m expecting to start and play,” Rodgers said. “I’d like to be out there and lead us the last two weeks.”NOTES: Philbin did not have an update on RB Aaron Jones, who left Sunday’s loss with a knee injury. “We’re going to have to see what his status will be Lance Kendricks Jersey ,” Philbin said. “Hopefully he’ll be ready to play.” The Packers had only one other true halfback on the roster against the Bears, Jamaal Williams, who carried 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown. . The team claimed RB Kapri Bibbs off waivers from the Redskins. Bibbs carried 20 times for 101 yards and three touchdowns for Washington this season and also caught 13 passes for 102 yards and a score. . Rookie reserve OL Alex Light was suspended one game for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, the league announced Monday. Light, who has played only three snaps on offense this season, is eligible to return to the active roster on Dec. 24.
