Update: Starting Quarterbacks

The NFL is reaching week No. 6 of the 2010 schedule on Sunday and Monday, and already nine teams, or 28 percent of the league have had more than one starting quarterback.

That number could rise to 11 on Sunday, pending the status of Brett Favre (left) and Aaron Rodgers. In what is a very ironic twist, these former teammates with the Packers are both possible not actives or out of the starting lineup. With Favre it’s his right elbow which is troubling him and with Rodgers it’s the concussion he suffered last Sunday against Washington.

Expect both of them to start, especially Favre. Vikings coach Brad Childress said Friday a final decision on Favre will come on Sunday before his team faces the Cowboys. Favre is listed as questionable.

“It will be right up ’til then,” Childress said. “I can’t look into a crystal ball and see how he wakes up tomorrow. He could wake up with the gout.”

Rodgers was cleared to practice on Thursday and on Friday he went through a full workout.

“Unless there’s any type of setback between now and the game, I anticipate Aaron to play on Sunday,” Packers head coach Mie McCarthy said. Green Bay listed Rodgers as probable on the injury report for Sunday.

So far 40 quarterbacks have started games, with two more making their first starts of the season on Sunday. That will go down in the same game, as Ben Roethlisberger comes back from his four-game NFL suspension to start for the Steelers against the Browns. Opening for Cleveland will be rookie Colt McCoy, as both Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace are on the injury report.

McCoy would become the fourth rookie to start a game this season, joining Sam Bradford in St. Louis, Jimmy Clausen in Carolina and Max Hall with Arizona.
