QB1’s night and preseason are over after two series and one touchdown pass.

NFL: Preaseason-Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Aaron Rodgers’ preseason is over after just over a quarter of football. The Green Bay Packers’ quarterback played the first two offensive series of Friday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, leading a touchdown drive on the second to pull the Packers even at a score of 7-7. He was pulled after those two series, as Joe Callahan took over for the third drive of the game.

Rodgers completed six of nine passes in the game, totaling 60 yards with one score. That touchdown came on a six-yard pass to Randall Cobb when Rodgers threw out of a called run play. Cobb led the way with three of Rodgers’ six completions for 30 yards and the score.

The starting quarterback is certain to sit next week’s preseason finale in Kansas City, as the Packers rarely play any starters in their final games of the preseason. Likewise, he did not play in the team’s first or second preseason games, and was slated to be out of action in the Hall of Fame Game even before that contest was cancelled due to field conditions.

Rodgers will now continue to practice but will have to wait until the season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars to get his next game action.
