It’s business as usual for the Green Bay Packers, even in the absence of veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers

Head coach Matt LaFleur concluded this week’s mandatory minicamp on Thursday with a press conference call where he told reporters that Rodgers’ holdout has not changed the “plan.” 

“I think the question really comes down to, Can the issue or issues be fixed between Aaron and, we assume, Brian Gutekunst, the GM? Can those be resolved? … Or is it deeper than that?” Farve says

Favre cautioned fans no to read too much into Rodgers’ absence from minicamp, adding that he may not even show for the start of training camp on July 27. 

“It’s not the first time someone’s missed a minicamp or an OTA or mandatory participation, whatever that may be. But you shouldn’t be surprised,” he said. “I’m not even saying the start of training camp, you shouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t show. Again, I wouldn’t put a whole lot into that.”

LeFleur is maintaining his composure well in the face of such uncertainty but he might also be taking comfort in Love as a possible Week 1 starter. 

“Every rep for him is so critical, whether it’s on air on his own or with us in 11-on-11 situation and he’s getting that constant coaching and I think he’s done a great job embracing the whole situation, learning from every rep,” LaFleur said Thursday. “One thing we talked about after Tuesday’s practice is ‘Hey man, you’re going to have some great days, then you’re going to have some days that aren’t as great and you got to be able to ride that wave, you’re never too high or never too low.’”
