On Saturday night, Jordan Love participated in a competitive football match for the first time in 603 days. Waiting for his second NFL preseason game will not be that long, but this week may not come.
Love injured his right shoulder in the late first half of the Packers’ first preseason game against the Texans. He was stripped naked and his shoulders were tense. He played another series in the game, but didn’t pass the ball again.
Adam Sheft of ESPN According to reports, the MRI of Love’s shoulder has returned to normal, and the injury is not expected to be serious. But can it get Love out of the Packers Jets game?
“Probably, yes,” said Packers coach Matt Lafleur, every Rob Dmowski of ESPN.
And even if Love can return to the court, he may miss some valuable practice time.
“I think he did a great job,” Lafleur said of love. “[The injury is] However, this is important enough, he may miss a few days of practice. We will see his performance this weekend, but we will accept it every day. “
Love’s injury is likely to prompt the Packers to sign another quarterback. There are now 3 people on their roster in Love, Aaron Rodgers and Kurt Benkert, but they do not plan to play Rogers during the preseason. Blake Bortles spent part of the offseason with the Packers, so maybe they will re-sign him.
If their second-year quarterback can’t adapt on Saturday, the Packers will definitely be disappointed. They wanted Love-he made a deep impression on his preseason debut, completing 12 of 17 passes for 122 yards and scoring touchdowns-before his rookie season After the game was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he did a lot of action in the preseason.
“He did a great job,” Lafleur said of Love’s debut. According to Nick Shook of NFL.com“What we really want is to take the command out to ensure that our actions are clean and tidy, that he is decisive and that his decisions are correct. In general, I think this is very reliable.
“If there is one thing that can encourage him to keep doing it, it’s’Hey, man, you have to make that fool rip. When you see it, believe what you see. Don’t worry about becoming perfect. Don’t worry about it.” Throw a perfect, accurate pass. Usually when you do this, you are not so accurate. You must let the ball go. “But in general, I think he did a very good job.”
