Still, that Rodgers was alive in the competition this long speaks a lot to the true freshman's talent. It's very possible Rodgers still could see action this season. First, considering his age, it stands to reason that he will continue to progress faster than Jackson and Jacquemain. Second, it's no guarantee the backup quarterback remains with the team, rather than transferring. Third, the starter will be on a leash shorter than usual, knowing that the competition in camp was tight.
Rodgers continued to get reps today at practice.
