The spotlight shifts to Jordan Love as he prepares to take the reins as the Green Bay Packers' starting quarterback for the preseason.
ESPN reports that Love is all set to make his appearance in the exhibition opener against the Bengals this Friday.
Love is focused on immersing himself back into the competitive mindset of the game through his participation in preseason matchups.
Drawing from his previous preseason displays, Love's potential shines through, having secured three touchdowns in those performances.
With his opportunities in regular season play being relatively limited, there's mounting anticipation around Love's potential as the new QB1.
Love's impressive cameo during Week 12 turned heads and generated intrigue about his capabilities on the field.
Following the Packers' decision to trade Rodgers, the pathway is cleared for Love to step into the role of the team's primary quarterback.
With Rodgers possibly opting out of preseason appearances, Love might see increased playtime as the preseason progresses.
