Breaking down the Packers' offensive snaps

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A look at the snap counts from the Green Bay Packers' 31-21 victory over the Oakland Raiders in Friday's third preseason game:

Total offensive plays (89)

Quarterbacks

Aaron Rodgers: 45

Scott Tolzien: 25

Matt Flynn: 19

Notes: Last summer, Rodgers' entire preseason play total was 45 snaps. He played 69 in the last two preseason games. He did not play in the opener and almost certainly will sit out Thursday's finale. If that's the case, his final preseason stats will look like this: 20-of-33 passing for 267 yards with three touchdowns, no interceptions and a passer rating of 116.6. In eight preseason series, he has four touchdown drives, one field goal and three punts. Flynn followed Rodgers and went four series, but Tolzien was able to put together longer drives in three full series. No. 4 quarterback Chase Rettig did not get into the game.

Running backs

James Starks: 26

DuJuan Harris: 26

Michael Hill: 16

LaDarius Perkins: 13

John Kuhn: 12

Ina Liaina: 10

Eddie Lacy: 8

Notes: Lacy's six carries went for gains of 4, minus-1, 12, 17, 3 and 1 yards. The 1-yarder was a touchdown run, and the minus-1 was the result of a blown blocking assignment. He's averaging 5.5 yards per carry in the preseason. Since rushing for 49 yards on just six carries in the preseason opener, Starks' production has fallen off. He replaced Lacy after one series but managed just 9 yards on seven carries. Last week against the Rams, he carried four times for 9 yards. Harris bounced back from his fumble last week and gained 56 yards on 12 carries and also had two catches for 42 yards (including a 31-yard screen). Using more two-back sets, Kuhn nearly doubled his preseason playing time. He had played just 14 snaps combined in the first two games.

Receivers

Randall Cobb: 45

Jordy Nelson: 45

Jarrett Boykin: 40

Davante Adams: 24

Jeff Janis: 21

Myles White: 19

Chris Harper: 18

Gerrard Sheppard: 12

Kevin Dorsey: 11

Alex Gillett: 11

Notes: The starting receiver trio of Nelson, Cobb and Boykin combined for only two catches for 19 yards (both by Nelson, who caught a 12-yard touchdown). Cobb had a bad drop on quick-hitting seam route in which he was wide open. Adam and Janis, the team's likely Nos. 4 and 5 receivers, also were shut out. Harper and Gillett helped their causes. Harper made a diving catch for 27 yards on a corner route, and Gillett caught a juggling 15-yard touchdown -- both from Tolzien.

Tight ends

Jake Stoneburner: 23

Richard Rodgers: 21

Ryan Taylor: 17

Andrew Quarless: 14

Justin Perillo: 12

Notes: Neither Rodgers nor Quarless, the top-two tight ends on Friday without Brandon Bostick (leg), showed they can handle their blocking assignments consistently. Rodgers missed a block on the game's second play, leading to the minus-1 yard run by Lacy. Later in the first half, Quarless couldn't handle Raiders rookie linebacker Khalil Mack, who sacked Aaron Rodgers. However, both made up for it with their hands. Rodgers caught a 32-yard post on the play after his blown block, and Quarless followed his gaffe with a 6-yard touchdown catch. Stoneburner (three catches for 29 yards), Taylor (two for 22) and Perillo (one for the 13) combined to catch every ball thrown their way.

Offensive line

David Bakhtiari: 45

Josh Sitton: 45

T.J. Lang: 45

Bryan Bulaga: 45

JC Tretter: 45

Corey Linsley: 44

Aaron Adams: 43

Derek Sherrod: 40

Lane Taylor: 40

Andrew Tiller: 23

Jordan McCray: 15

Garth Gerhart: 7

Jeremy Vujnovich: 4

John Fullington: 4

Notes: The lone sack allowed by the No. 1 offensive line was charged to Sitton, who got beat by veteran LaMarr Woodley for minus-6 on third down. Sherrod semi-bounced back from a terrible showing at St. Louis. He did not allow any sacks, pressures or hits, but graded out as the worst run blocker on the line, according to ProFootballFocus.com. Barring a trade, waiver claim or free-agent signing, it appears Sherrod will be the backup at both tackles, Taylor will do the same at guard, and Linsley will be the No. 2 center.
