Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not a fan of the NFL preseason, so he was less than enthused when his Green Bay Packers were selected to play the Indianapolis Colts in the 2016 Hall of Fame Game at Canton.
When asked on Twitter to comment on the Packers playing an additional preseason game, Rodgers sarcastically used the hashtag "#stoked" to describe his feelings.
Via Rodgers' verified Twitter account:
Rodgers complained last year about the length of the preseason, arguing that it could be cut in half. He said this after his top receiver, Jordy Nelson, was lost for the season to a torn ACL in Week 2 of the preseason. Nelson's knee injury hindered Green Bay's offense all season, as the Packers failed to replace his impact outside the numbers.
Considering what happened last year and Rodgers' general attitude toward the preseason, it would be surprising see the standout quarterback play more than a series or two in this year's Hall of Fame Game.
