Jordan Love’s shoulder MRI came back clear, but the Green Bay Packers aren’t going to push him.
Love will not practice on Monday, according to coach Matt LaFleur.
“He is feeling a lot better, but we’re going to be smart by it, too,” LaFleur said.
With only two healthy quarterbacks on the roster and Aaron Rodgers sitting out the preseason, LaFleur indicated the Packers will work out quarterbacks on Tuesday. He hasn’t ruled out Love’s participation in Saturday’s game against the Jets.
“We’ll just see how the week goes and how he recovers but he’s feeling significantly better than he did on game day,” LaFleur said.
The second-year quarterback shined in the first half of Saturday’s loss to Houston before suffering a shoulder injury late in the second quarter on a strip-sack. Due to the injury, the Packers were forced to abandon their plan to play Love for three quarters.
After not playing in a football game since the Senior Bowl in 2020, Green Bay went into preseason action hoping to get Love as many reps as possible. His initial preseason play revealed both potential and areas for improvement.
