Aaron Rodgers will have to wait at least another week to make his 2019 preseason debut. The Green Bay Packers announced about 90 minutes before Thursday night's kickoff at the Baltimore Ravens that their star quarterback would be held out due to back tightness in what was described as a "precautionary" move.
Rodgers did not play in the preseason opener but was expected to play about a quarter, along with the bulk of the offensive starters, on Thursday. Rogers has 42,944 passing yards in a 14-year NFL career, almost of all of which was played under head coach Mike McCarthy. First-year head coach Matt LaFleur is taking over a team that went 6-9-1 last season.
Backup DeShone Kizer was expected to start for the second straight week.
