Rodgers (back) is suited up for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Raiders, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
EDGE Analysis
Just because Rodgers is suited up does not necessarily mean he will play, particularly with concerns about the field conditions in Winnipeg, but he will at least have a chance to see his first action of the preseason. The Packers figure to reveal whether or not Rodgers will ultimately take the field before kickoff, which is schedule for 8:00 ET.

Rodgers' (back) availability for Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders in Winnipeg has yet to be determined, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers indicated Monday that he no longer has any issues with the back, so there's a chance he will make an appearance Thursday. Even if he does, there's a good chance it wouldn't last beyond a few series as he looks to preserve his good health for the start of the regular season.

Rodgers, whose back tightened up after last Tuesday's practice, indicated Monday that at this point he feels fine, noting that there's no concern with regard to his Week 1 status, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
EDGE Analysis
In fact, Rodgers thought about practicing Sunday, but elected to play it safe. As far as the QB seeing action in Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders, coach Matt LaFleur relayed Monday that "we'll see," while adding, "It's certainly not a priority. I don't think it's going to make or break us one way or another. I've got so much confidence in him."

Rodgers (back) was limited during Monday's practice and did not suit up with the first team, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers was held out of practice over the weekend due to back tightness, after having been a late scratch for last Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens. The veteran signal-caller returned to practice Monday and appears to have participated in a limited capacity as the Packers take a cautious approach to his recovery. Though Rodgers is on track to suit up for Thursday's preseason tilt against the Raiders, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, the extent of his participation throughout the week will be worth monitoring.

Rodgers (back) returned to practice Monday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
EDGE Analysis
A late scratch for Thursday's preseason loss to Baltimore, the 35-year-old quarterback then was held out of practice over the weekend. His return Monday supports a statement from GM Brian Gutekunst, who said Rodgers is expected to play in Thursday's exhibition against the Raiders. Coach Matt LaFleur suggested Rodgers would've played through the back tightness last week if it had been the regular season instead of the preseason.

GM Brian Gutekunst said Rodgers (back) is slated to play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Raiders in Winnipeg, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers was a late scratch for last Thursday's exhibition due to back tightness, and the absence extended into Sunday's practice, per Demovsky. After the session, coach Matt LaFleur wasn't too worried about Rodgers, stating the Packers likely wouldn't be taking a cautious approach if the regular season was ongoing. "Yeah, I'm pretty sure that would be the case," LaFleur said. "I think even the other night ... but with it being the preseason, it wasn't worth it." If Rodgers doesn't get to run the offense in a game before Week 1, he'll be doing so for the first time in the opener at Chicago.

Coach Matt LaFleur expects Rodgers (back) to practice Sunday, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers was a late scratch for Thursday's preseason game at Baltimore as a precautionary measure due to back tightness. If the issue persists, there's a chance he won't be on the practice field Sunday with an eye toward ensuring his health for the regular season. As for the rest of exhibition season, Rodgers' next chance to suit up comes Thursday against the Raiders in Winnipeg.

Rodgers will be held out of Thursday's preseason game at Baltimore due to back tightness, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. The move is deemed "precautionary."
EDGE Analysis
Prior to this contest, coach Matt LaFleur indicated that Rodgers and most of the starters were in line to play "a quarter or so," but a minor issue will keep the quarterback sidelined for a second straight exhibition. In Rodgers' stead, DeShone Kizer should get the start, with Tim Boyle and Manny Wilkins splitting the remaining QB reps.

Coach Matt LaFleur said Rodgers and the other starters will play "a quarter or so" in Thursday's preseason game at Baltimore, Jason Wilde of The Wisconsin State Journal reports.
EDGE Analysis
The Packers used Geronimo Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling in their preseason opener, while Rodgers, Aaron Jones, Davante Adams and Jimmy Graham were held out. There's no guarantee they all play Thursday, but it at least seems Rodgers will be out there to start the game. He's surrounded by most of the same players from last season, with LaFleur and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett representing the major changes.

Rodgers did not suit up for Thursday's preseason opener, but Packers.com senior writer Mike Spofford presumes Rodgers will see action in the Packers' next two exhibition contests.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers was not expected to play Thursday, but the Packers did not reveal until shortly before kickoff that he would indeed be held out. It's probably beneficial for him to see at least some action this preseason in order to get in a test run with new head coach and play caller Matt LaFleur, but the Packers will no doubt be cautious with him in order to make sure he is 100 percent for the team's season opener against the Bears. As was the case prior to exhibition game No. 1, Rodgers' availability for the Packers' second preseason contest, against the Ravens, may not be determined until close to game day.
