Packers being patient with Rodgers’ injury…Foles starts again…Bill look to Allen at QB

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says Aaron Rodgers will be given the entire week to prepare for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. Rodgers was carted off the field in the first half of Sunday’s 24-23 win over Chicago, but he returned to throw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter as the Packers erased a 20-0 deficit. Rodgers said after the game he would undergo more tests, though he planned to play against Minnesota.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Nick Foles will remain the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay. He is staying under center while Carson Wentz continues to recover from a knee injury suffered in Week 14 last season. Foles was 19 of 34 for 117 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Philadelphia’s 18-12 win over Atlanta last Thursday.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott says rookie quarterback Josh Allen will make his first career start on Sunday against the Chargers. Allen replaces second-year pro Nathan Peterman, who threw for just 24 yards and two interceptions before he was pulled in favor of Allen in the second half of last weekend’s 47-3 loss at Baltimore. The Bills had hoped to slowly work Allen into the lineup after taking him with the seventh overall pick in this year’s NFL draft.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star guard Russell Westbrook has undergone an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee that keeps his availability in doubt for the season opener against the Golden State Warriors on Oct. 16. The team says Westbrook decided after suffering inflammation in the knee this past weekend that he’d have the procedure.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nashville Predators forward Austin Watson has been suspended without pay for the entire preseason and first 27 games of the regular season for domestic abuse. Commissioner Gary Bettman handed down the suspension of Watson, who pleaded no contest in July to a charge of domestic assault stemming from an incident in June. A league investigation determined Watson engaged in unacceptable off-ice conduct.
