Packers QB Aaron Rodgers knows if he will be cleared to play; decision to be made public Friday

It sounds like Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 already knows whether or not he will play Sunday versus the Steelers. We commoners have to wait until the Packers officially announce whom their starter will be on Friday. Rodgers was asked Thursday if he knows if he will be cleared to play in this game and Rodgers responded, "I have a pretty good sense of what's going to happen, yes."
Rodgers practiced Thursday but didn't take any snaps with the starting offense. The large majority of those snaps went to Matt Flynn.

Fantasy Analysis:

We'll have more on this when the Packers make their announcement Friday, but for now, it's not looking good for Rodgers. The lack of first-team reps is very telling. Flynn put up big numbers last week in Dallas, and the Steelers' don't have a shutdown pass defense. However, I'm still not ready to trust him as anything more than a QB2, and Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson is the only Packers wideout I would consider to be more than a WR3. One thing Flynn has done that I do believe in is put Andrew Quarless on the pickup radar. He has six catches for 66 yards and a touchdown in each of his last two games, and the Steelers have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends in the past two weeks.

who do you start, .. Vincent Jackson or Jordy Nelson ? Standard scoring league.

Mosh who's more likely to catch a long ball. Neither has caught many balls lately and with Rodgers out tough to trust Nelson. I have both of them on separate teams? I'm starting rams D but I think Jackson has a better chance.
