Saturday’s training will be closed to the media, but the Packers have to notify the league if Rodgers participates and would appear in daily transactions because it would mean that the team would have used one of its two “designated to return” spots from the list. Reservations.
The Packers have already used one of their two spots with tackle Jason Spriggs.
On Sunday, the Packers (5-6) play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and then the Browns of Cleveland Browns next week.
