News: 4 days agoKizer started Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens and completed five of 10 passes for 70 yards. He did not account for any touchdowns nor turn the ball over.
Spin: Aaron Rodgers was expected to start under center Thursday, but he was a late scratch with a sore back, which allowed Kizer to start for the second week in a row. Kizer got a chance to play with the rest of the first team this time around after most of the Packers' starters sat out the exhibition opener. However, he only played two drives -- one ended on a turnover on downs, one on a field goal -- so it was tough to take too much away from the outing. Kizer remains the favorite to open the season with the backup spot behind Rodgers, but fellow quarterback Tim Boyle -- or possibly even someone not currently on the roster -- could still come away with the job.
