Green Bay Packers Rookie Progress Reports for Preseason Week 1
Mark Zaleski/Associated Press

The Green Bay Packers lost their first preseason game against the Tennessee Titans in a sloppy, rainy contest on Aug. 9, but the game plan was never to win—it was to evaluate the rookies and backups competing for spots on Green Bay's 53-man roster. 

Coach Mike McCarthy scratched Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson and Eddie Lacy ahead of the matchup, while allowing rookie receiver Davante Adams to start as the No. 3. 

Rookies Jared Abbrederis and Colt Lyerla did not play Saturday evening; Abbrederis, of course, will miss the season after tearing his ACL, while Lyerla continues to nurse a knee injury. Seventh-round pick Jeff Janis dressed but did not play.

The Packers' other rookies got an opportunity to show what they could do in a game setting.

We last checked in on how the rookies were performing during training camp. Now let's examine how they look after one preseason matchup under their belts.
