The Green Bay Packers get their preseason underway against the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium this evening, and I'm giddy. We get to see the Packers go up against another team in a real game with 11 players on each side and four 15-minute quarters. I don't care that it's just preseason.

We listed all of the players who are unlikely to play in our preview post earlier today, which you can check out right here. Charles Woodson, who was not expected to play, has now been ruled out. According to ESPN's Lisa Salters, who is in San Diego covering the game, Aaron Rodgers will play two series. If you're wondering who's out for the Chargers, you can find that information right here.

Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. ET, 7:00 p.m. CT and 5:00 p.m. local time. You can catch the game nationally on ESPN and on your local ABC affiliate in Wisconsin. The game is available online on Watch ESPN, but not on their ESPN3 service. You can listen on Sirius Radio 138 nationally, AM 620 WTMJ in most of Wisconsin or FM 101.1 WIXX in the Green Bay area.
