Packers planning a change at punt returner after Amari Rodgers loses another fumble

Mike Florio discusses the difference-maker for the Green Bay Packers in their Week 10 overtime victory vs. the Dallas Cowboys: the strength of the run game.

Packers return man Amari Rodgers has a fumbling problem, and the Packers’ coaching staff seems ready to make a change.

Green Bay head coach Matt LaFleur confirmed today that the Packers are re-evaluating whether Rodgers should continue as their punt returner. LaFleur did not say who will return punts Thursday night against the Titans.

Special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia said he likes what Rodgers can do, but the fumbles are unacceptable.

Rodgers has fumbled four times on returns this season, including a fumble that set up a Cowboys touchdown on Sunday. After Rodgers’ fumble, Keisean Nixon returned punts for the rest of the game.
