Aaron Rodgers stood on the sideline during the Green Bay Packers' preseason opener last weekend wearing a sweatshirt and sweatpants. Observing the game was pretty much the extent of his involvement.

That will not be the case again Saturday in the Packers' second preseason game, as Rodgers will start at quarterback on the road against the St. Louis Rams.

Rodgers will likely only lead Green Bay's offense for a couple drives, but he has two things he wants to accomplish.

"I'd like to stay healthy," Rodgers said. "That's kind of the goal there. Last year we didn't score a touchdown, so my No. 2 goal is to score a touchdown."

Health was not the reason that Rodgers didn't play in the first preseason game, but he is coming off a season in which he missed seven starts due to a fractured left collarbone.

Since becoming the Packers' starting quarterback in 2008, Rodgers had never previously sat out the opening preseason game. In 2010 and 2013, he didn't play in the preseason finale.

The 24 passing attempts that Rodgers had during the 2013 preseason were the fewest of his career, as were the 45 snaps that he took.
