Aaron Rodgers is looking forward to watching Brett Favre's induction ceremony into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
The guy who replaced Favre, extending a seamless line of stellar quarterback play with the Green Bay Packers, will be making his first visit to the museum. The enshrinement ceremony is Saturday, and the Packers play the Indianapolis Colts in the Hall of Fame game on Sunday.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Kevin Greene, who was an assistant coach in Green Bay, is also among an eight-member class being honored. Greene will be introduced by current Packers defensive coordinator and former Steelers assistant Dom Capers.
But Favre's induction especially means a lot to Packers fans. He was voted in on the first ballot.
"There's a lot to be said about that and his career and the way he played, and it'll be fun to hear the remarks," Rodgers said before practice Monday night.
They may not have been quite as chummy in 2008, when Rodgers took over as the starter following the messy split between the Packers and Favre who, at the time, had a hard time deciding whether or not he was going to retire.
Relationships have been mended. The Packers retired Favre's No. 4 jersey last year in an emotional homecoming.
"It's going to be really special to be a part of," Rodgers said about watching Greene and Favre getting inducted on Saturday.
The Packers are staying in Cleveland and must organize travel to Canton for the ceremony.
Rodgers didn't know yet coach Mike McCarthy's plan for playing time for preseason games, including Sunday.
•The Bills signed free-agent running back Reggie Bush to a one-year contract to provide veteran depth behind starter LeSean McCoy and fill a big hole in their return game.
•Chargers coach Mike McCoy said wide receiver Stevie Johnson needs surgery for his injured right knee. The team won't know the severity of the injury until after the surgery, which will be in the next few days. Johnson was injured during Sunday's practice.
•Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett called out Panthers quarterback Cam Newton specifically Saturday as not doing enough to impact social change from his position.
By Sunday night, Bennett had reached out to apologize to the All-Pro quarterback.
The outspoken Bennett said Monday on "SportsCenter'' that he called Newton to apologize for intimating Newton was satisfied with making millions without affecting change in society.
Through a team spokesman, Newton declined to comment on Bennett's remarks or reported apology.
