Bortles was in the Packers building this summer when Aaron Rodgers was away from the team, so he is familiar with the offense. He is expected to be promoted to the roster on or before game day and, with Kurt Benkert also testing positive for COVID, may be asked to serve as the backup this weekend. Jordan Love will get the start against the Chiefs, but if he crumbles, Bortles may be asked to play in his garbage time sweet spot.
