Rodgers, LaFleur downplay 'animated' exchange

Both Packers coach Matt LaFleur and quarterback Aaron Rodgers downplayed their animated sideline interaction on Sunday, with LaFleur characterizing the exchange as "just two competitive guys" in the "heat of the moment."

Darnell Savage, who left the locker room in a boot, got kicked in the shin and is not believed to have a serious injury, a source said. The Packers will put the rookie safety through some additional tests on Monday just to make sure.

Aaron Rodgers had a smile on his face when asked about the animated discussion he had with coach Matt LaFleur on the sideline. He said it was not a big deal and said with a chuckle: "Can't say we were yelling how much we love each other (but) we were not MF'ing each other." Rodgers seemed to appreciate that LaFleur came and sat next to him on the bench while the defense was on the field.

Aaron Rodgers used the term "bonehead" to describe him thinking the Packers had a first down right after the 2-minute warning in the first half based on the initial spot. Didn't realize it was fourth-and-1.

Aaron Rodgers sums it up: "We scored 21 points in the first quarter and then zero in the last three quarters."

The Packers have only blown a 21-point lead three previous times in franchise history and it hasn't happened since November 1983 against the Falcons, according to ESPN Stats & Information. They lead 21-16 with 11:48 to go after being up 21-0.

Matt LaFleur spent part of the last series sitting next to Aaron Rodgers on the bench while his defense was on the field. They appeared to be look at LaFleur's call sheet. The offense will go back on the field clinging to a 21-16 lead.

As fast as the Packers started the game, their start to the second half on offense was the opposite: Turnover on a fumbled snap before a penalty for 12 men and a burned timeout.

It's officially an ankle injury for Raven Greene, who was carted to the locker room. For now, his return is questionable.

The Packers put up 230 yards in the first half against the Vikings after totaling just 213 for the entire Week 1 game against the Bears. Despite leading 21-10 at halftime, most of that production came in the first quarter. The second quarter drives were punt, turnover on downs and punt.

Lane Taylor held off rookie Elgton Jenkins for the starting left guard job, but it lasted less than five quarters. The Packers went with Jenkins for two series without an injury to Taylor. And then they went back to Taylor, who apparently is now in a rotation with the rookie.
