Raiders unimpressive 20-12 in loss to Green Bay

Oakland, a team on the rise, wants to play its young stars, provide them ample time to get into sync and build momentum for the regular season. The Packers chose to sit quarterback Aaron Rodgers, wideout Jordy Nelson, and linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers — four players that have combined for 21 Pro Bowl appearances. Green Bay’s starters played just one series and No. 2 quarterback Brett Hundley left with an ankle injury early in the second quarter. The Raiders’ starting offense managed just four first downs and 73 yards in five first-half possessions. Raiders coach Jack...

Raiders vs Packers preseason week two recap: Raiders take big leap back at Lambeau

There wasn't much of what the Raiders showed in their preseason opener when they headed to Green Bay. With Aaron Rodgers sitting this one out, taking the field to start at quarterback was Brett Hundley. But it didn’t matter who was at QB, the Raiders were flat out ran over in the opening drive. Eddie Lacy gashed them for 45 yards and a touchdown on nine carries to lead out the contest. The Raiders had to answer with their own ground attack and weren’t able to do it. Latavius Murray had just 7 yards on 3 carries. The highlight was a gorgeous pass around the defender and dropped into...

Raiders vs. Packers Preseason 2016: First half updates and discussion

Join APC as we follow along with the first half of the Packers’ second preseason game. Tonight, the Green Bay Packers resume their preseason schedule as they host the Oakland Raiders at Lambeau Field. With a healthy Brett Hundley back on the field throughout the week at practice, the offense should have a boost over last week when undrafted rookie Joe Callahan started the game under center. However, signs point to Aaron Rodgers sitting out once again this evening as he and other Packers veterans await the start of the regular season. Another player who is likely not going to play is wide...

Jordy Nelson Activated: Packers receiver passes physical and comes off PUP list

Aaron Rodgers' favorite receiver is finally ready to practice. The Green Bay Packers got some terrific and long-awaited news on Wednesday, the eve of the team's second preseason game. According to the NFL's official transaction wire, the Packers activated wide receiver Jordy Nelson from the Physically Unable to Perform list, making him eligible to begin practicing and participating in preseason games. This was the final step in the return to action for Nelson, who tore his ACL in the second game of the 2015 preseason (in Pittsburgh). He indicated that the knee that landed him on the PUP...

Cheese Curds, 8/15: Lacy feels explosive again; will Rodgers play Thursday?

As one Packer discusses getting back into good physical condition, another continues hoping that his best receiver will be back from injury soon. This afternoon, the Green Bay Packers will continue their preparations for Thursday's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders, and the return of Brett Hundley to practice on Sunday means that he is likely to play later this week. However, we do not yet know whether starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play on Thursday, and his snaps on Sunday did little to shed any light on the subject. While the quarterbacks get much of the attention,...

Packers should get Jordy Nelson back this week, Rodgers to play vs. Raiders

The Green Bay offense looks like it’s finally going to be at full strength in the coming days. On the telecast of the Green Bay Packers’ preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on Friday evening, two notable items of news were revealed that will drastically affect the watchability of the team’s next game. First, quarterback Aaron Rodgers spoke to commentators Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon in the booth. Rodgers sat out the entire Browns game, and was not going to play in last week’s Hall of Fame Game even if the field were in playable shape. However, Rodgers said on Friday that he...

Cheese Curds, 8/11: Rookie QBs prepare for Browns, Barrington is back in shape

As Green Bay prepares for its second preseason opener, they do so without their top two quarterbacks once again. The Green Bay Packers finally will get their preseason schedule underway on Friday night, just five days after it was supposed to begin. Fans hoping to get a glimpse of Aaron Rodgers or Brett Hundley under center this week will be disappointed, though, as the former will be held out of the game as a precaution and the latter continues to miss practice with an injury. That leaves the Packers with just two quarterbacks suiting up for the game, and neither one of them has ever taken...

Aaron Rodgers hopeful that Jordy Nelson and Jared Cook will return from PUP list next week

Could Green Bay get two of its injured receiving options back in the next few days? Although the big news out of Canton this evening was the cancellation of Sunday’s Hall of Fame Game due to issues with the field conditions, there was one other significant piece of information that slipped out tonight. That item revolves around a pair of Green Bay Packers who are currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list - wide receiver Jordy Nelson and tight end Jared Cook - and it actually came out of the mouth of his quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers was interviewed this evening on ESPN...

The Hall of Fame Game turf came from the New Orleans Superdome

Yes, the turf that is installed in Canton was at the Superdome just last season. Tonight’s scheduled Hall of Fame Game between the Packers and Colts was canceled over an hour ago, but we are constantly learning more about the decision to cancel the game as well as the field conditions itself. One of the fascinating pieces of information revolves around the actual turf in use at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. That stadium was likely renamed to honor Benson, the New Orleans Saints owner, because of this fact that was revealed by ESPN’s Adam Schefter this evening: "This is a field that...

Packers’ quarterback absences will affect player evaluation in Hall of Fame Game

If Rodgers and Hundley don’t play Sunday, it will be difficult to get a good read on the progress of the Packers’ receivers. On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers open up their 2016 preseason schedule with the Hall of Fame Game against the Indianapolis Colts. With this game being a fifth preseason game for Mike McCarthy’s team, it seemed likely all along that Aaron Rodgers would not play on Sunday. However, at the present time, it appears that the Green Bay Packers will be down to two quarterbacks for the preseason opener. Rodgers was given the day off from practice on Thursday, suggesting...

Aaron Rodgers with a fun Justin Smith story

Don’t eat too much turkey before taking on Cowboy Justin Smith is viewed by many of his fellow competitors as one of the best defensive lineman of his time. He did not put up monster statistics, but there was no denying how ridiculously dominant he could be. Aaron Rodgers was on Bill Simmons’ new HBO show recently, and he had a brief story about Smith. Rodgers prefaced it by saying Smith was one of his favorite opponents, and one of the most dominant players he had played against or watched on film. However, in the video above, you can see how a serious comment from Cowboy could crack...
