Mandatory Credit: Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports When the Green Bay leader saw a “piss poor effort” from some of the team’s younger players, Rodgers let them know about it Tuesday. Rodgers, who probably won’t play in the Packers’ exhibition opener on Thursday against Tennessee, was running the scout team offense to help Green Bay’s No. 1 defense prepare for the Titans.
