Preseason games are usually for rookies and players trying to make the roster, but on Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens, the Green Bay Packers will have their starters out there, including quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur tolds reporters on Tuesday that Rodgers and the other starters will play "a quarter or so" against Baltimore.

It's not uncommon for a player of Rodgers' level to play in the preseason, but if history is any indication this could be his only preseason stint.

Rodgers appeared in only one preseason game last year, suiting up for Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers where he attempted only four passes.

The 35-year-old gunslinger hasn't appeared in more than two preseason games since 2014, and since he's coming off an injury-riddled season, you'd be hard-pressed to see him behind center following this quarter of football.

It's a new offense under LaFleur, so this is probably a good thing for every starter, including Rodgers.
