GREEN BAY, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Green Bay Packers will play two home exhibition games in the next seven days, starting tonight against Oakland Raiders. It will be the first Lambeau Field visit for Charles Woodson, James Jones, and C-J Wilson since they left Green Bay. Woodson and Jones are expected to start tonight, and get a lot of playing time.
The Packers expect to play their starters at least into the second quarter. They're still auditioning players for several roster spots -- including tight end, where the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel now says Brandon Bostick had a slight fracture in his right leg fibula. Bostick was hurt while catching a pass last Saturday against Saint Louis, and reports say he could be out until October.
That gives rookie Richard Rodgers and the returning Andrew Quarless a chance to nail down the starting spot. Ryan Taylor and Jake Stoneburner will be in the mix as well -- and perhaps rookie Justin Perillo.
You can hear the game on WSAU. "Packer Game Day" begins at 5pm.
