While veteran Aaron Rodgers is back for another season as the starting quarterback, it is clear that Jordan Love is the Green Bay Packers' future plan at the position. Packers fans will be glad to hear that Love's latest injury update is the best case scenario given he is unlikely to miss any time at all.

Jordan Love Injury Update

Love suffered an apparent right shoulder injury during a sack-fumble play late in the second quarter of the Packers' preseason loss to the Houston Texans. Fortunately, his MRI came back clean on Sunday morning and it looks like he will just need some rest before heading back out on the field.

The injury ended Love's night pretty early as he left the game at halftime and did not return. The 22-year-old was originally set to play three quarters. He did impress during limited action completing 12 of his 17 attempts for 122 yards and 1 touchdown across six drives.

The game acted as Love's first true taste of the NFL since there was no preseason prior to last season. He should have another go at it when the Packers take on the New York Jets on Saturday, August 21. The two teams will also share some joint practices throughout the upcoming week.

The rocky relationship between Rodgers and the Green Bay organization makes Love one NFL backup that needs to be ready to play at any time. For now, the Packers have odds set at -145 to win the NFC North division and odds set at +1200 to win the Super Bowl, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
