Things certainly haven’t gone according to plan for Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley.
After missing two weeks of Training Camp with a bad ankle, Hundley returned last week, only to re-injure his ankle early in the second quarter of Thursday’s 20-12 exhibition win over the Oakland Raiders.
Hundley spoke with reports on Saturday and was moving around well. But Hundley’s ankle is still sore enough that Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the second year quarterback would be hard-pressed to play at all in the third preseason game against San Francisco.
During his short stint on Thursday, Hundley led the Packers on a 14-play touchdown drive to open the game. He was hurt after completing a 31-yard pass to Davante Adams. On that play, Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack hit him after Hundley got the pass off and rolled up on his ankle.
The Packers entered training camp hoping to get Hundley as much time as possible, but that plan hasn’t worked out. He has managed to take just 20 snaps from center.
Aaron Rodgers is expected to make his preseason debut against the 49ers on Friday night. The Packers are hoping Hundley will be healed in time to play in the final preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
