The third preseason game is usually considered the biggest test of the preseason for starters as first-team units typically play into the second half.
But if you’re Aaron Rodgers and you’ve thrown for at least 3,900 yards and 28 touchdowns in each of the last five seasons, getting extensive work in the third preseason game probably isn’t all that vital.
Rodgers played just one series for the Green Bay Packers in their match-up with the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night. Rodgers finished 4 for 7 for 41 yards on a drive that ended in a 38-yard field goal from Mason Crosby.
Graham Harrell replaced Rodgers at quarterback and the Packers promptly went three-and-out on their first possession with Harrell at the helm.
The Packers and Seahawks currently are tied at 3-3 midway through the second quarter.
