GREEN BAY, Wis. With less than four weeks to go before the Green Bay Packers begin the regular season, quarterback Aaron Rodgers talked with the media about adding Cedric Benson, having so many injuries on the team, getting the offensive line healthy and more.
Five question-and-answer highlights:
1. What are your goals for the preseason?
RODGERS: I just don't want to get hurt. If I can get out of the preseason not getting hurt, that's kind of a win. Obviously, we want to score some points, move the ball, but as much as anything, it's getting those five linemen together and making sure the protections are looking good. It's the preseason, so you're not going to see a whole lot of blitzing, probably, but you want to make sure you feel good about who your left tackle is and how he's blocking, especially in the NFC North, and score some points.
2. Are you glad starting left tackle Marshall Newhouse is finally able to play again after missing a lot of time due to a concussion?
