Rodgers completed 16-of-27 passes for 162 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Lions.

Rodgers connected with six different receivers, throwing his lone touchdown pass to tight end Andrew Quarless. Rodgers has now thrown for fewer than 190 yards in two of three games this season and faces a tough Bears defense in Week 4 that has been very solid against the pass.

Rodgers threw for 346 yards with three touchdowns in Sunday's 31-24 comeback win over the Jets. He also rushed for 28 yards on six carries.

Rodgers and Green Bay got off to a slow start, trailing 21-3 in the second quarter. The veteran superstar came on strong in the second half though, tossing two of his three touchdowns, including an 80-yard score to Jordy Nelson, who finished with 209 yards. Rodgers will face his first game in the division next week, traveling to Detroit.

Rodgers completed 23-of-33 passes for 189 yards, with one touchdown and one interception in Thursday's 36-16 loss to the Seahawks.

Rodgers played a bit better than the numbers indicate, but it was far from his best performance. The Seahawks were in mid-season form on defense, getting a consistent pass rush while looking strong as ever in coverage. The Green Bay offense really struggled in the third quarter, with right tackle Derrick Sherrod playing the part of a turnstile while filling in for an injured Bryan Bulaga (neck). Still, Rodgers made an uncharacteristic number of poor decisions, despite frequently being forced to check down. He'll likely have much more success next week against a Jets team with a patchwork group of corners. After that, the Packers play each of their NFC North rivals in succession, with the trio of games likely to produce a few shootouts.

Rodgers completed 11-of-13 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown during the Packers' preseason victory Saturday in St. Louis.

Debuting a no-huddle offense, Rodgers put together two 12-play, 80-plus yard drives en route to two scores before leaving for good in the second quarter. The near-perfect performance included use of all receiving options, as no one was targeted more than Jarrett Boykin with four. Rodgers is expected to garner his most preseason run Friday versus the Raiders, which will afford more reps with his weapons, old and new.

Rodgers will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, ESPN reports.

Rodgers was rested during the Packers' opening preseason game, but will take the field in St. Louis this time around. That being said, it's unclear just how long Rodgers will feature for, but it doesn't figure to be long considering his status as one of the league's elite quarterbacks. However, outside of Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, Rodgers is somewhat unfamiliar with his other passing targets, so Saturday should allow an opportunity to build chemistry in a game setting.

Rodgers won't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Even though Rodgers is healthy, he'll stay sidelined Saturday as to not get injured when there's still three preseason games left on the docket. However, he'll likely see time on the field when the Packers face the Rams on Aug. 16.

Rodgers is not expected to play more than a series or two in Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Rodgers is clearly one of the established quarterbacks in this league that has little to benefit from seeing extended preseason work, so this announcement should come as no surprise. Instead, coach Mike McCarthy will use the first preseason contest to get a longer look at backups Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien, who are competing for the No. 2 spot behind Rodgers. Expect the veteran to see a bit more work as the preseason carries on, but it's unlikely he sees the second half of any games.

The Packers' goal is to run 75 offensive plays per game this season.

The Broncos led the league at 72.1 plays per game last season and the Pack were 11th at 66.8. Getting 75 offensive snaps off weekly isn't very realistic, but it speaks to the tempo at which coach Mike McCarthy wants his team to play. The goal is to prevent defensive substitutions, keeping them in base formations. "We play pretty fast, but you always want to play faster," McCarthy said. More plays mean more box score production across the board, especially with Aaron Rodgers at the controls.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers has had his "best spring."

The broken left collarbone that derailed the Packers' 2013 season has been fully healed for more than seven months now. So it's not a surprise that Rodgers, now 30 years old, 11 pounds lighter and squarely in his prime, is looking sharp. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes that the average age of starting Super Bowl quarterbacks over the last 48 years is 29.80.

Aaron Rodgers promises to keep using his scrambling ability when opportunities present themselves.

Rodgers' athleticism is an underrated part of his skill set, both in real life and fantasy. "It adds an extra dimension to my game," he said. Rodgers has generally popped off three or four rushing TDs per season, but didn't have any last year. We can expect him to continue to supplement his stats with rushing yards and scores this season. Rodgers is Rotoworld's No. 2 QB for 2014.
