This weekend, the Green Bay Packers will suit up for their third preseason game of 2015, and their first at Lambeau Field. Six days after the carnage at the ketchup bottle, the team's roster has changed quite a bit, though head coach Mike McCarthy insists that the team's identity will not change as a result of the injuries suffered against the Steelers last Sunday at Heinz Field.
Of course, Jordy Nelson's injury will keep him out for the entire 2015 season, but also concerning are the injuries across the offensive line. With guards T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton suffering a concussion and an ankle injury, respectively, the will likely join left tackle David Bakhtiari on the shelf on Saturday evening. Since three of his starting linemen will probably be out, do not expect Aaron Rodgers to see much playing time, even though the third game traditionally serves as the contest which gives starters the most snaps.
With backup quarterback Scott Tolzien working through the concussion protocol after suffering one of his own last weekend, that should mean plenty of reps for Brett Hundley and Matt Blanchard.
Coming into town is the other NFL team from Pennsylvania, one whom the Packers know well. They have played the Eagles at Lambeau Field around mid-season each of the past two years, splitting those games. Of course, the 2013 contest which the Eagles won took place with Tolzien under center, as Aaron Rodgers was working his way back from a broken collarbone.
Here's how and when to tune in for this weekend's game.
