Blake Martinez said he didn't travel to the Oakland game because he wanted to get his back checked out. It had been a bit of a bother during camp so he wanted to make sure nothing was wrong. Tests revealed no issues, he said, and he was back on the practice field today.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers LB Curtis Bolton said he doesn't think he has an ACL tear but was vague about his prognosis. Also, WR Allen Lazard is in the concussion protocol after leaving Thursday's game vs. Oakland.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer

Source: Pack to cut 2017 2nd-round pick Jones

The Green Bay Packers will release safety Josh Jones on Sunday, and the 2017 second-round pick is likely to get claimed on waivers, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers released RB Darrin Hall, who had been claimed off waivers from the Bengals on July 27. GM Brian Gutekunst has been working the phones looking for another back in the trade market, according to league sources.

Manitoba premier bummed over shortened field

Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister credited organizers for "trying," but said there was a "lot of disappointment" over problems that led to the first NFL game in Canada since 2013 to be played on an 80-yard field.

The backup quarterback battle between DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle will go down to the end of the preseason. While it seemed Kizer has been in the No. 2 spot most of camp, Boyle's two-TD showing in the start against the Raiders tightened things up going into the final preseason game on Thursday against the Chiefs. "We're going to evaluation from here until that decision has to be made," LaFleur said. Either way, GM Brian Gutekunst indicated last week that the backup QB is probably someone who's on the roster already.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt LaFleur said ultimately the reason he yanked his starters before kickoff on Thursday night in Winnipeg was a gut feeling. "Something in my gut. I was told when I got this job to trust my gut," LaFleur said.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt LaFleur's challenge this week is both getting the team ready for the regular-season opener, which is less than two weeks ago, but also making final roster evaluations. He mentioned possibly even splitting up the team into two different practices. "You would like to get a jump on the season opener, but there's still some position battles going on," LaFleur said.

Source: Packers' St. Brown could miss 6 weeks

Packers receiver Equanimeous St. Brown, who almost certainly would have been in the rotation to start the season, might miss six weeks with a left high ankle sprain, a source told ESPN.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Equanimeous St. Brown's injury is a left-ankle sprain, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. That's probably the best-case scenario for St. Brown, considering he couldn't walk off the field without assistance on Thursday night against the Raiders. However, it means St. Brown almost certainly won't be ready for the start of the regular season. It looks like it could be a six-week recovery time. Good thing for the Packers that they have what Aaron Rodgers called "one of the deeper [receiver] groups that we've had."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

No post-game injury updates from Packers coach Matt LaFleur, but here's what came out of the game: Rashan Gary: Undisclosed injury but his agent tweeted that he "is fine and doing well." Equanimeous St. Brown: Left leg/ankle injury that appeared to be serious. Curtis Bolton: On crutches with a brace on his right knee. Allen Lazard: Appeared to land on his head/right shoulder.

Raiders edge Packers on 80-yard field in Winnipeg

Daniel Carson kicked a 33-yard field goal with 8 seconds remaining, and the Oakland Raiders earned a bizarre 22-21 preseason victory over the Green Bay Packers Thursday night on a field that was shortened to 80 yards over concerns about player safety.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Rodgers said on the Packers TV broadcast that not playing tonight has "nothing to do with (his sore) back, it's more the field conditions that we had tonight."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Rashan Gary's agency posted in a tweet that the Packers' first-round pick, who was taken to the locker room in a car, is OK. "[He] is fine and doing well. Thank you to everyone for their prayers and concern," RG Sports posted on Twitter.

Tim Boyle's numbers as he led the Packers to a 21-10 halftime lead: 16-of-25 for 191 yards and two touchdowns/no interceptions. His preseason totals: 31-of-57 for 338 yards and five touchdowns/no interceptions.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers WR Equanimeous St. Brown appears to have a left leg/knee injury. He was carted to the locker room at halftime. Earlier, first-round pick Rashan Gary also took the cart to the locker room.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Not to be outdone by Trevor Davis, fellow receivers Darrius Shepherd (with a stellar over-the-shoulder catch for 22 yards) and Allen Lazard (two catches for 24 yards) show what they can do during the 2-minute drive -- the third straight TD drive for Tim Boyle.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Another great preseason for Jake Kumerow. With two catches for 20 yards and a touchdown tonight, he has seven catches for 99 yards and a TD in parts of three preseason games.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

With two touchdown passes tonight, Tim Boyle now had five in three preseason games without an interception. He's 10-of-18 for 122 yards and two TDs tonight and 25-of-44 for 269 yards and five TDs this summer.
