An impressive preseason earned Boyle, an undrafted free agent, a spot on the Packers' 53-man roster, but he was never activated for a regular-season game with fellow quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and DeShone Kizer suiting up for all 16 contests. Kizer did not show a lot in the two games he saw extended action in, so Boyle could give him a run for his money in 2019.
Boyle completed four of seven passes for 37 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.
Boyle did not get the chance to throw as much as he did in the first exhibition contest when he put the ball in the air 15 times, as the Packers were already well ahead on the scoreboard when he entered the game. He certainly didn't hurt his chances of making the cut by any means, but he remains a long shot to do so.
Boyle completed 7-of-15 passes for 130 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's preseason opener.
Boyle's accuracy was not on point Thursday, but the bulk of the seven passes he completed were rather impressive, including perfect tosses on each of his scores. Boyle faces long odds to make the Packers' Week 1 roster given the experience of fellow reserve quarterbacks Brett Hundley and DeShone Kizer, but if he keeps playing like he did Thursday, there is a good chance a spot on the Packers' practice squad is reserved for him.
