Before warmups, game officials and staff from both clubs were on the field examining the patches of turf that covered the spots where the goal posts for 110-yard CFL games were removed. One of those players was starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was vocal about the field by saying that he didn't sit out because of back tightness, but because "it's more the field conditions that we had tonight".
I think Shepherd also secured a roster spot on Thursday night with another solid performance. I know it wasn't sold out, but that being said, for two teams that aren't from Winnipeg, I thought there was a very good turnout today.
Honestly, I think this roster is shaping out pretty organically with the marginal players on this roster so this section of the stock report will evolve more as the season progresses and players on the 53-man roster start to struggle. "He moved the ball well".
Even still, the backup quarterback battle is far from over as the Packers head home to Lambeau Field to face the Kansas City Chiefs in their final preseason game. "You'd have to ask Green Bay about that", Gruden said after the game. That's what the team is still assessing regarding the competition for QB2.

As we wait for T'Challa and company to return to the big screen , hopefully our other black superhero flick will be released. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther .
Both the National Football League and the managers of IG Field have to shoulder equal responsibility for this mess - the National Football League for foolishly going ahead with the game, and especially the stadium for not taking adequate time to prepare the field in the week prior.
Immediately following the game on Thursday night, I wrote about the top three takeaways for Green Bay.
"We were going to have all our starters play and it was just one of those deals". He was dealing with a shoulder injury, evidenced by the shoulder brace he wore upon arriving to training camp. Davis returned from a stinger that sidelined him for two weeks and caught five passes for 78 yards and one touchdown, carried once for 18 yards and returned one punt for 17 yards. He also had a few solid returns on special teams. He was seen after the game in a walking boot and underwent futher evaluation Friday. "But it was just one of those deals where they weren't playing their starters, so we just made a decision to sit them", LaFleur said.
"But they promoted it like they were all going to play", Sellar said. The biggest surprise of the summer has been just how good the undrafted rookies have been, as guys like Keelan Doss and Keisean Nixon are making a real run to make this team.
