Packers-49ers: Why Aaron Rodgers saw Thursday's game as a 'fun challenge' despite Green Bay's injuries

After being ruled out with a calf injury in the eighth, there’s a chance that Packer Aaron Jones could return to the field for Thursday’s game against the 49ers running back, but if he can’t play, things will go for Green Bay. Can be difficult.

As things stand at the moment, even if he plays Jones, he will be in a limited role, According to NFL.com. Packers typically have AJ Dillon and Jamal Williams on the deep charts running for second and third place, but both players were placed in the reserve / covid-19 list earlier this week, with which they lost on Thursday. Becomes unable to play.

If Jones can’t go, it means the Packers will be forced to run two runs – Tyler Irwin and Dexter Williams – who are so far off the depth chart that there’s a good chance most NFL fans had. Never heard of them before this week. In fact, Aaron Rogers is directing a backfield featuring two players, Irwin and Williams, who have teamed up for exactly four innings this year.

This may not be the ideal situation for some quarterbacks, but Rogers clearly sees it as a “fun challenge.”

“I think you are a competitor Always happy about challenges“Rogers said through the team’s official website this week.” You’d love to meet your guys there with all your might, of course, but here’s the fun challenge of going in and trying to find them without them. The way to win. “

This season is not the first time the Packers have lost some offensive firepower. Ellen Lazard will not play on Thursday, marking the third time she has missed a game this year. Rogers also had to deal with the loss of star receiver Dwight Adams in two games earlier this season, and the Packers took a 2-0 lead in those games.

“I don’t think we’re always persecuted for what we’ve done,” Rogers said. “We had to combine some workers and some boys to walk around the farm to bring and try their good boys and we have to provide some benefits through the use of staff. It’s not going to change.”

Apparently, Packers coach Matt Laughler gets extra creative when he has the limited man power to deal with crime.

“I think there’s beauty in this year’s (coach) Matt (LaFlor) and the criminal staff is looking for creative finding ways to get our best guys on the field this year and put them in space,” Rogers said. . . “This week is no different.”

As for the two new boys who will likely see the workload against the 49ers, Roger seems to be a fan of both.

“I love [Williams]”Rogers said.” Dax has a really good attitude. He has done a great job of increasing crime and feeling more comfortable with his responsibilities in checking and pass blocking and route-running. He seems to have settled down a bit more this year and is feeling more confident. ”

Like Irwin, Rogers likes the fact that he can play in virtually any offensive skill situation.

“He can do a lot,” Rogers said. “That receiver can play. He can be our fly-choice guy. He can play in the backfield. With those two guys in protocol, we have to make sure he has another big role to play this week.” We are meeting our best boys. “

There’s a good chance that both players will see some serious action on Thursday and that’s because Janice plays, but she doesn’t expect to be on the field for every game. According to NFL.com, the Packers are chasing the star He will be in a “limited role” if he ends up playing.
