Deshaun Watson is unlikely to travel with the Texans for the preseason opener, according to GM Nick Caserio.

Watson missed roughly a week of training camp practices and finally returned to the field on Monday.
He was out due to ankle and calf problems, according to the official explanation for his absence.
Watson wasn’t getting much work when he was practicing, as he was relegated to fourth-string quarterback and defensive safety at times.
The Texans’ quarterback position is in limbo, as Watson’s trade demand has been exacerbated by a personal crisis involving multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
Houston is attempting to establish a new, winning culture under Caserio and new head coach David Culley while talk about the reigning NFL passing leaders’ future continues to swirl.
The Watson debacle isn’t helping that cause at all.
Even if Watson was in good standing with the team, he presumably wouldn’t get many reps in game action during the preseason.
In Houston’s quarterback depth chart, veteran journeyman Tyrod Taylor is the anticipated starter.
On Saturday, he should get some reps at Lambeau Field, but most Texans fans will be looking forward to rookie third-round selection Davis Mills’ debut.
Watson’s lack of presence will almost certainly be masked by the Packers’ own quarterback problem.
Jordan Love will play his first NFL snaps, and how he looks as Aaron Rodgers’ ultimate successor — happily for the Texans — will take precedence over any lingering narratives about Watson’s absence.

Jordan Love’s playing time with the Green Bay Packers will be affected by Aaron Rodgers’ new contract.

Jordan Love’s situation with the Green Bay Packers just became more complicated with the return of Aaron Rodgers for at least one more season.
Despite the fact that Love was a first-round pick in 2020, Rodgers is the undisputed starter, and he’ll have to remain on the bench for at least another year.
Love needed a year to adjust to the tempo of the professional game from the moment he declared himself eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft.
But, Love’s future in Green Bay is questionable at the moment, after Rodgers’ MVP season and his return to the team yesterday, as well as the fact that he now has control of his own destiny.
When will Jordan Love make his Packers debut?

Of course, garbage time or a week 17 game when/if Green Bay rests its starters for the playoffs are his best bets.
Yet, with Rodgers on the roster, there’s no chance the kid will be the starter.
Green Bay Packers Training Camp In the end, it might all be part of the Packers’ game plan.
Rodgers, after all, waited on the bench for three years before taking over for Brett Favre and becoming one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
Green Bay may be hoping to do the same with Love: maintain him as a backup quarterback as long as Rodgers is still on the roster, and then give Love a chance to prove himself.
The Aaron Rodgers story came to an conclusion on Monday, July 26, when the quarterback stated that he would report to the Packers’ training camp after the front office made some concessions to nullify a year of his contract and give him authority over his future after this season.

Getting to know incoming Wisconsin Athletic Director Chris McIntosh: From on-field success to succeeding Barry Alvarez

Chris McIntosh became Wisconsin’s athletic director during one of the most pivotal moments in the history of college sports.
McIntosh, who joined the Badgers athletic department in 2014, took over as AD on July 1, the same day that the name, image, and likeness era began. McIntosh spoke with The Athletic on Monday about navigating NIL, how his time as a Badgers All-American offensive lineman impacts him in his current role, his abrupt NFL retirement, and following in Alvarez’s footsteps.
The quick response is that it has been fantastic.
That is, as you are aware, an tremendously exciting period.
It’s a historic time to be a part of college athletics on a national one, and then to be a part of it on a local level.
