Aaron Rodgers is playing this week.
When the Green Bay Packers play the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lambeau Field on Thursday, Rodgers will lead the team. It will be the first time he’s played since December 17 of last year. That was a brief one-game appearance after a broken collarbone shut Rodgers down on October 15.
After the game, Rodgers was put on injured reserve.
If you’re worried about QB1 getting injured in the preseason, there’s good news. He won’t have much of chance to.
It appears Rodgers will only appear in the Pittsburgh game.

The Packers finish the preseason with two road games. At Oakland and at Kansas City.
Rodgers hasn’t played much in the preseason in recent years. However, it appears the Packers will be a little extra cautious this year.
The third preseason game is when the starters get the most action, typically playing into the third quarter. Thus, Thursday might be the only glimpse we get of the Packers’ first-team offense.
The third game will likely be the starters and Brett Hundley.
Is it week 1 yet?
