Rodgers is listed as the third-string tight end on the Packers' depth chart heading into Week 1. Rodgers was the Packers' primary tight end two years ago, but he took a back seat to Jared Cook a year ago, and will now play behind two other players this season. As such, expect his fantasy contributions to be minimal.
Rodgers (finger) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins. Rodgers, who missed out on the preseason opener due to a fractured finger on his right hand, seems to be healthy again and should step in as the No. 3 tight end behind Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks.
Rodgers (finger) returned to practice Sunday, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. Rodgers practiced with a small splint on his broken right ring finger. Fortunately, the tight end said it doesn't impact his ability to catch or block, meaning he should be able to play in games with it until his finger heals.
Rodgers (finger) expects to practice Sunday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Rodgers was held out of Thursday's preseason victory against the Eagles due to injury, which has been revealed to be to the ring finger on his right hand. It's unclear yet whether he'll require a club to protect the hand, but his ability to practice Sunday bodes well for an appearance at some point during the preseason.
Rodgers will be sidelined for Thursday's preseason contest against the Eagles due to a finger injury, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports. Since Rodgers sustained the ailment Tuesday, the Packers had been mum about his health. The nature of his injury doesn't aid in one of his two primary duties -- catching the ball -- so it remains to be seen how long he'll be sidelined.
