Packers banged up going into preseason opener

The Green Bay Packers had 19 players on their injury report going into their

Aaron Rodgers

afternoon practice on Tuesday in Green Bay.  For the second straight day, the Packers shortened their workout and went in shells instead of full pads.

Mike McCarthy ruled out three more players for Thursday’s preseason opener against the Chargers.  Marshall Newhouse (concussion), running back Brandon Saine (hamstring) and cornerback Sam Shields (elbow) have all been ruled out.

Herb Taylor is expected to get the start at left tackle for the Packers on Thursday night, which means Mike McCarthy will have to decide just how much time Aaron Rodgers will get in this contest.
