It has been a busy week for the Green Bay Packers.

They traded cornerback Rasul Douglas before Tuesday's deadline, landing a third-round pick from the Buffalo Bills. They now aim to snap a four-game losing streak when they host the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9.

There are plenty of news updates to catch up with today. Packers president Mark Murphy gave his take on Jordan Love's season, Green Bay made a roster move ahead of Sunday's game, and more.

So, let's dive right in.

Packers president Mark Murphy still believes in Jordan Love

In his monthly column for, team president Mark Murphy gave his assessment of Love's performances this season. He stressed that it "wouldn't be fair to judge" Love yet because of the other factors involved. And Murphy is right. Love hasn't been helped by the players around him.

Murphy remains confident in Love despite the offense's struggles this season. Here's what he wrote:

"As a person, Jordan is everything you would want in a player – hard worker, smart, humble, a leader who is respected by his teammates. He is also willing to take the blame when things don't go well. His play has been up and down, though. Young players often take time to find consistency, but we still very much believe in Jordan and are excited to see his continued development."

Murphy goes on to say that we shouldn't compare Love's first season as the starting QB to Aaron Rodgers' in 2008, which is another fair point. Rodgers played alongside a veteran offense. Love is surrounded by young, inexperienced players.

To Murphy's credit, he didn't make a long-term commitment to Love in his answer. He was optimistic but honest, admitting that Love's play can be better.

The Packers will give Love until at least the end of the season. Then it's decision time.
