This week, the Green Bay Packers conclude their preseason schedule with a game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday evening.However, the Packers wrap up their open practices for the year on Monday, taking the field for a 12:15 PM practice. Unfortunately, weather conditions have driven practice indoors Cheap Darnell Savage Jersey , meaning that the public will not be able to observe the final open practice of camp. This is the only open practice of the week, as the team had a short week after playing in Oakland late Friday night.With Aaron Rodgers and the starters likely sitting out on Thursday, expect him and most of the first-string offense to run the scout team today. One of the interesting storylines to watch this week will be the playing time of the Packers’ other three quarterbacks: Brett Hundley, DeShone Kizer, and Tim Boyle. With Hundley and Kizer fighting to back up Rodgers, expect them to each get a half Darnell Savage Jersey Womens , with Boyle probably receiving little to no playing time on Thursday.As usual, one of the big takeaways from today’s practice will be the extent to which the team’s injured players participate.
