Green Bay, WI - In the week leading up to the Packers home opener at Lambeau Field against the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur and Aaron Rodgers both made public statements asking fans to be louder during the game. 

So what were the results?  Rodgers said the fans were "amazing."

He also says he actually loves "The Wave."

Just not when Green Bay's offense is on the field. 

The Packers (2-0) host the Denver Broncos (0-2) Sunday at Lambeau Field. Kickoff at 12pm. 

The Packers will be wearing their 1940's blue & gold throwback jerseys. 

The team is 2 - 2 when they have played in those jerseys. 

CHANGING OF THE GUARD

The Packers announced that Lane Taylor (bicep) would be out for Sunday's game. 

That means rookie Elgton Jenkins (pronounced Elton) will replace Taylor at left guard.  

The second round pick out of Mississippi challenged Taylor for the starting job during training camp, and played in a few series Week's 1 and 2 against the Bears Vikings. 

Jenkins said on Friday he is now grateful for those snaps to help him acclimate to the NFL game.

Tight end Jimmy Graham (groin) was able to participate in Friday's practice after missing earlier in the week. But expect extra snaps for second year tight end Robert Tonyan, and possibly Evan Baylis, promoted Wednesday from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Wednesday. 

Rookie safety Darnell Savage Jr. (shin) who began the week in a walking boot, is expect to play against the Broncos as well.
