GREEN BAY (AP) -

Aaron Rodgers is expected to make his 2014 debut on Saturday.

Rodgers missed the preseason opener at Tennessee that was played in a drenching rainstorm.

Coach Mike McCarthy says Saturday's game at St. Louis is more about seeing what the other guys around Rodgers do more than anything else.

The 2011 NFL MVP might be having one of his best training camps yet of his nearly decade-long career.

Rodgers said he's looking forward to getting work in with new center JC Tretter and the Packers' younger receivers.

No. 1 wideout Jordy Nelson returned to practice for light duty Tuesday after missing a few days with a sore hamstring.
