Packers QB Jordan Love returns to practice

Quarterback Jordan Love rejoined the Green Bay Packers on the practice field Monday for his first workout in a week.

Love injured his right shoulder and was not participating in team practice sessions since leaving the preseason game with the Houston Texans on Aug. 14. He did not play in the Saturday exhibition against the New York Jets, and was only an observer for the joint workouts at Lambeau Field last week.

An MRI exam on Love’s throwing shoulder was negative, but the Packers went the safe route with the 2020 first-round pick and reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers’ backup.

Head coach Matt LaFleur said the Packers will use the first few days of the week to determine whether Love sees the field against the Buffalo Bills in the final preseason game of the season on Saturday.

No. 3 quarterback Kurt Benkert led a pair of first-half touchdown drives against the Jets and worked overtime by preseason standards with Love out of the mix.

Benkert also tripped dropping back from center twice on the same drive.

The Packers could keep three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, LaFleur said, but pointed to countless variables that will factor into that final decision.

“He’s definitely going to make it tough on us to decide which way we want to go,” LaFleur said of Benkert.
