Packers hold Jordan Love out of joint practice with Jets
The Green Bay Packers kept quarterback Jordan Love out of Wednesday’s practice, a joint session with the New York Jets, but did not rule Love out when the two teams meet in a preseason game Saturday.
Love, a 2020 first-round draft pick and backup to Aaron Rodgers, reportedly had an MRI exam on his injured throwing shoulder come back clean Sunday.
He missed Monday’s practice and partook in a light throwing session Tuesday, according to Packers coach Matt LaFleur.
LaFleur said the Packers will give Love “every opportunity” to play in Saturday’s exhibition.
“We just don’t ever want to put him in a situation where it could make it worse,” LaFleur said.
If Love is ultimately held out of that game, Green Bay would turn to third-stringer Kurt Benkert to start. The team also re-signed free agent quarterback Jake Dolegala on Tuesday for depth. Dolegala spent part of the summer on the Packers’ roster.
