|QB Rodgers Not Among Packers' Pre-Season Issues
|GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers' preseason-opening loss to the Cleveland Browns might have given their fans cause for concern in several areas, but the most important player seemed to be in midseason form: quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
While the Packers' first-string defense struggled against the Browns' offense on Saturday night, sure-handed running back Ryan Grant lost a fumble the first time he touched the ball and the special teams looked just as shaky as they were last year, Rodgers picked up right where he left off in 2009.
Rodgers completed his first nine passes and finished 12 for 13 for 159 yards with no interceptions, no sacks and a touchdown for a passer rating of 143.3 before giving way to backup Matt Flynn after roughly 20 snaps.
