In a new interview with ABC News, the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Josh McCroin said he is “in great condition” for his upcoming season and hopes to be ready for the start of the season on Oct. 5 against the Denver Broncos.
McCown, who has yet to practice with the team, said his knee is in good shape and he is confident that his knee will be in good condition during the season.
“I’m 100 percent,” McCown said.
“My knee feels great.
My knee is great.
I’ve been practicing and working out for two weeks.
It’s the best knee I’ve ever had.
It looks great, it feels great, and I’ve got no problem with it.
I feel good.”
The Packers will be without their top-ranked passing offense (third in the NFL) when they host the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field on Oct, 5.
They will likely miss the playoffs for the second consecutive season.
The Packers will also miss the postseason this season, and have not won the division since 2013.
After leading the Packers to their first playoff appearance since 2009, the Packers are in desperate need of a win to push their playoff hopes into the postseason.
They need a victory over the Broncos, who have won four straight games against the Packers.
The team is coming off a Week 6 win over the New York Jets, who defeated the Packers at Lampeau Field.
