Packers open up preseason Thursday night vs. Houston

The voice of the Green Bay Packers, Wayne Larrivee, previews this week's preseason opener between the Packers and Houston Texans.

The teams have held two joint practices this week leading up to Thursday's game at Lambeau Field. In the game itself, its two biggest stars will not play. Aaron Rodgers and J.J. Watt will be spectators for the contest. But, there's plenty to watch for, including the newest Packers, the new-look edge rusher group, and how the receiver, defensive line, linebacker, and backup quarterback jobs pan out. It's also a chance to see a vanilla version of the Packers' new offense under coach Matt LaFleur.

As always, the main goal is to not get anyone hurt.
