Instead, it will be the third and fourth-string players that are battling to make the Chiefs or another football team.

Thirty-three players total did not dress or play last week in Canada against the Raiders. Some of that was due to field conditions, some of it injuries. I expect that number will be close to that again. There is absolutely no reason to put any key contributors in this game. We are a week away from Chicago and the regular season. Losing a key contributor now would just be a dumb mistake.
The Packers won’t have to worry about field conditions this week as they are at home, where Lambeau is always in pristine condition. It’s more than likely we won’t see any of the Chiefs stars. I’m certain Andy Reid has Patrick Mahomes and the rest of his starting crew in bubble wrap and hidden away.
As we put the preseason to rest, here are five player battles to watch Thursday night versus the Chiefs.
1. Dexter Williams/Tra Carson
The Packers are set at the top two positions. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are set to carry the bulk of the load during the regular season. But both have battled injuries this preseason and Jamaal Williams just recently returned to practice. Coupled with Jones’ injury history, it’s highly probable the third running back could see carries early in the season.

That battle has come down to the trustworthy if unspectacular Tra Carson and rookie Dexter Williams. Of the two, Williams is the more explosive player. He hits the hole, gets upfield in a hurry and has good size to withstand the pounding of the NFL.
What the Packers have in Carson is a reliable back who will get what’s there but doesn’t make people miss. Carson is solid in pass protection and a big reason why he’s been in there before Williams in the games.
The team will have to decide between the reliability of Carson or the threat of Williams. It could very well be possible both stick and the Packers go light somewhere else. This game could be the deciding factor.
Thankfully, the preseason finale has finally arrived and we are just three days away from roster cutdowns and eight days away from the regular-season opener against the division rival Chicago Bears. This year’s preseason has been absolutely brutal to watch between the debacle in Winnepeg and the sloppy display of football we have been treated to in each of the last three weeks.
Unfortunately, we are most likely in store for another month or so of sloppy football as a considerable amount of the starters have played little to no in-game reps thus far. Hopefully, the NFL addresses the preseason and either just eliminates it completely, or adds a game or two to the regular season with an additional bye week and eliminates one or two preseason contests.
My guess is starters in this league will continue to play less and less preseason snaps, and preseason games will turn into open tryouts for rotational players to make the fifty-three man roster.
Now that you’ve heard me complain about the preseason for hopefully the final time this year, here is a look at some of the key internal positional battles I will be watching in the preseason finale against the Chiefs.
1. The battle for the backup quarterback position:
This is a pretty lackluster battle because both players are not the ideal player to fill the position. With that being said, I would look to bring in the loser of the Redskins quarterback competition (Keenum or McCoy), or even Brock Osweiler. I know these alternatives to Kizer and Boyle are less than desirable but I honestly believe that each of them would give the Packers a better chance to win a game or two if Aaron Rodgers were out for 4-6 weeks.
2. Who will round out the wide receiver position?
At this point, the only question will be whether the Packers find a way to keep both Lazard and Shepherd on the roster. So far, the depth chart at the wide receiver position looks like 1. Adams, 2. Allison, 3. Kummerow, 4. MVS, 5. Davis, 6. Shepherd/Lazard *(ESB heading to IR). Right now, I think Shepherd provides the most versatility for the fifty-three man roster but Lazard shows the potential to be a threat on both intermediate and deep routes by utilizing his frame and strong hands.
3. Who will provide depth at inside linebacker?
With Oren Burks status for the season uncertain, the Packers are considerably thin at the inside linebacker position. As things stand, Blake Martinez is primarily the point man at the position and will get some help from Ty Summers, James Crawford, and Curtis Bolton. This is another position Brian Gutekunst should look to sure up with a proven veteran presence who can serve as a plug and play rotational player.
4. Will Gutekunst Shake up the Offensive Line?
The starting offensive line has not gotten a whole lot of reps together in the preseason but there is some speculation beginning to grow over one potential move that could be made, and that is moving on from Lane Taylor. As many of you know, I have publically been against cutting Lane Taylor because I think he will rebound and play well this season. However, throughout the last week or so, I have seen some reports from other outlets that would suggest that the thought to start Elgton Jenkins at left guard is at least in the mind of Brian Gutekunst as roster cutdowns approach. Stayed tuned to see how this battle unfolds.
5. Will the Packers Finally Just Name Mason Crosby the kicker or sign Carli Lloyd?
I am hoping the Packers don’t name Sam Ficken as their starting kicker just to save a few bucks. This would be a massive mistake because Mason Crosby is clearly the better and more proven player. If the Packers were looking to find a more notable replacement at kicker they’d be better off signing Carli Lloyd; but since they wouldn’t want the headlines and media attention associated with making that move, they should probably just hang on to Mason Crosby for another season.
