Packers QB Aaron Rodgers not getting many snaps this preseason, coaches not worried about it

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will enter the regular season having played the fewest preseason snaps of his time as a starter.

Coach Mike McCarthy, quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo and Rodgers himself were mum on whether he'll even suit up against the Chiefs in the preseason finale. Rodgers would have to play deep into the game to get his snap count up to match the previous five years, and the Packers aren't going to risk their franchise quarterback like that.

So far this preseason, Rodgers has played 45 snaps in five offensive series. He's completed 17 of 24 passes (70.8 percent) for 237 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions, one sack and a passer rating of 102.3.
