A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers articles for Tuesday, August 27.

Welcome to the Packers News Report. Preseason continues in two days, but it’s fair to assume the Green Bay Packers won’t have any of their starters playing. And that will be the same for most, if not all, of the other teams around the NFL.

So the real question is whether the NFL should reduce the number of preseason games. Oftentimes, teams just aren’t willing to risk losing key players in games that don’t count towards the regular season standings. And that’s the right decision.

Aaron Rodgers likely won’t feature at all in the preseason. That means Green Bay has had four weeks of games being played between backup quarterbacks.

Should the NFL reduce the number of preseason games, or should they continue with four? What are your thoughts?

Today’s Packers News Report features a look at Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s fantasy football value, players to watch against the Kansas City Chiefs this week, and more.
