Pregame warmup: Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson healthy scratches

NASHVILLE — Another (pre)season is about to begin, and against a familiar August foe.

The Packers are at LP Field in Nashville to take on the Tennessee Titans tonight. The two teams haven’t met in the preseason since 2009, but that last meeting finished a string of eight consecutive years the Packers and Titans went head-to-head in August.

Here’s the latest on tonight’s matchup:

Starters sitting: For the Packers, QB Aaron Rodgers, RB Eddie Lacy and WR Jordy Nelson will not play. They are healthy scratches. Replacing them in the starting lineup are QB Matt Flynn, RB James Starks and WR Jarrett Boykin.

Injury update: Seven players on the Packers roster did not make the trip to Nashville due to injuries. They are S Tanner Miller, S Morgan Burnett, TE Colt Lyerla, OL Don Barclay, WR Jared Abbrederis, DL Letroy Guion and DL Jerel Worthy. The injuries to Barclay and Abbrederis are season-ending.

Burnett’s absence puts a significant spotlight on the safety position, as converted CB Micah Hyde will get his first game action at safety, and first-round draft pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will make his pro debut. Reserve safeties Sean Richardson and Chris Banjo also have earned praise from the coaching staff during camp, making safety one of the most competitive positions on the roster.

For a rundown on key storylines and players to watch tonight, check out packers.com’s companion preview stories on the offense and defense.

Hot weather: Temperatures at kickoff are expected to be in the mid-80s, which is higher than the Packers have had for any of their training camp practices thus far. There are also scattered thunderstorms in the area, with precipitation chances of around 50 percent during the game.

On the road again: Next week, the Packers will be back on the road for a Saturday afternoon preseason game in St. Louis. Green Bay will then play its final two preseason contests at home, against Oakland and Kansas City.
