Herb Taylor (72)
With Marshall Newhouse ruled out of the preseason opener after suffering a concussion in last Friday's Family Night scrimmage, the Packers turned to Herb Taylor.
In a perfect world, the Packers would have inserted last year's first-round draft choice, Derek Sherrod, in the starting lineup, but he hasn't practiced since training camp began while he remains on the PUP list.
Taylor had a difficult time handling Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram, a first-round draft choice this past April.
Just two possessions into the game, Taylor allowed Ingram to hit Rodgers while releasing the ball, which resulted in an interception.
With little depth on the offensive line, Taylor remained in the game even when the starters exited, but things didn't get much better as the veteran offensive lineman remained on his heels all evening.
To make matters worse, Taylor also had an offensive holding penalty in the first quarter that was declined when the Packers threw a pass incomplete.
