Rodgers seems likely to play in Friday's preseason game against the 49ers, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers was seen in practice taking all the snaps with the Packers' starting offense, which is a change after he worked with the scout team during the first two weeks of the preseason, when he sat out both of Green Bay's games. Since Rodgers will probably also be rested for the team's preseason finale, Friday's contest likely represents his lone opportunity to get some game action under his belt before the regular season, so his involvement with the starters in practice certainly seems to suggest he's preparing for just that.

The Packers will not play Aaron Rodgers (rest) in Thursday's matchup with the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

This will be the second consecutive preseason game missed for Rodgers. The move is unsurprising as head coach Mike McCarthy appeared to be leaning in this direction during the week. The Packers are clearly favoring Rodgers' health over the need for preseason snaps. Historically, teams tend to play their starters the longest in Week 3 of the preseason, so that may be the only time we get to see Rodgers in action prior to the season.

Rodgers' status for Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders remains unclear, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers sat out the Packers' preseason game Friday, and as of now, it's uncertain whether coach Mike McCarthy will have him play in this week's subsequent exhibition. McCarthy indicated Monday that Rodgers' status will be influenced by which offensive linemen ultimately play, thus ensuring any risk is as minimal as possible. Rodgers obviously doesn't need many preseason snaps to be prepared for Week 1, so it's really just a matter of when those snaps will come in Green Bay's remaining preseason slate.

Rodgers isn't expected to suit up for Friday's preseason game against the Browns, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

During the final practice open to the media prior to Friday, Rodgers directed the scout-team offense, which is the clearest indication that the Packers won't risk any hits for at least another week. If he follows his preseason reps from the past three seasons, he'll take the field two times and total about 5-to-6 series in advance of the regular season. With Brett Hundley (ankle) still tending to an ankle injury, Joe Callahan and Marquise Williams will be under center for the exhibition.

Sunday's night's Hall of Fame game, which was slated to feature Rodgers and the Packers against the Colts, has been canceled due to "concern about the condition of the field" at Canton's Tom Benson Stadium, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With potentially unsafe playing conditions at hand, reportedly the result of issues with the paint used to mark the field, the league wisely elected to cancel the contest, thus eliminating the risk of players unnecessarily being exposed to injury in an exhibition game.

Rodgers isn't expected to play in Sunday's Hall of Fame game against the Colts, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers will be donning the pads in one additional preseason contest due to their presence in the yearly exhibition. As a result, head coach Mike McCarthy wants to avoid any risk with his franchise quarterback. With Brett Hundley (ankle) slated to sit out as well, McCarthy will entrust Joe Callahan with the start Sunday, while Marquise Williams receives the remaining snaps under center.

Rodgers was held out of Thursday's practice in order to rest, which is also an indication that he will be held out of Sunday's preseason opener, according to Jason Wilde of ESPN.com

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers is not dealing with any sort of injury, but the Packers will play five preseason games compared to the four that 30 others team will play, and it appears the team will avoid taking any chances with Rodgers' health early on. A final call on Rodgers' status for Sunday's game will likely be made and announced Friday.

Head coach Mike McCarthy didn't say Rodgers will be specifically limited in the preseason, but that they will definitely be "conscious of how much Aaron's throwing the ball.", Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCarthy is simply being careful with his franchise quarterback to start the season. Rodgers is under no restrictions following his offseason arthroscopic knee surgery, and is good to go for the 2016 season.

Rodgers relayed Monday that he has no restrictions after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery earlier in the offseason, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "I'm feeling really good right now," Rodgers added.

EDGE Analysis

Mere cleanups, such as the one performed on his knee, generally don't have a long-lasting impact, and Rodgers' recovery appears to be no different. Monday marked the first day of the Packers' offseason program, which head coach Mike McCarthy noted in February would include Rodgers. Because the preceding came to fruition and Rodgers is feeling no ill effects from the procedure, he can now look forward to rebuilding his rapport with Jordy Nelson (knee), who was also able to participate Monday.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy expects Rodgers (knee) to be ready for OTAs in April, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers had arthroscopic surgery Jan. 16 to address a lingering issue in his left knee. He played golf at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am two weeks ago and should be fine for Green Bay's offseason program.
