Cheese Curds, 8/2: How much (if at all) will Aaron Rodgers play in the Hall of Fame Game?

New, comments

After Indy's coach said he'll play his starters on Sunday night, the focus turns to Green Bay to see if Rodgers and company will even step onto the field.

When the Green Bay Packers take the field on Sunday evening in Canton for the Hall of Fame Game, fans will get their first look at the 2016 roster in a real, live-action setting. The question now becomes this: will the entire roster actually play, or will the coaching staff hold the veterans out of the first of five preseason games?

The Colts announced via their head coach that Andrew Luck and company will play and although Chuck Pagano did not say how many snaps or series they would be in for, just by virtue of that statement it's likely to be more than the Packers play their starters. However, even the Packers' players don't know just yet what the breakdown will look like - that's something that has yet to be decided, or at least yet to be communicated.

We look at the plans for the upcoming weekend in today's Cheese Curds, and in addition we find a look at one young Packer looking to define a new role for himself and a question about the intensity of training camp practice. Enjoy!
