In a development that should surprise no one, Packers coach Mike McCarthy had scant information regarding Aaron Rodgers’ concussion suffered on Sunday.
It was the second concussion for the Packers quarterback this year. He’ll go through the normal testing procedures for the rest of the week and McCarthy estimated he wouldn’t have an update on Rodgers until Wednesday or Thursday.
“I had a chance to visit with Aaron,” McCarthy said via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “He’s just starting to go through the testing and procedures and so forth. He slept in a little this morning.” (He slept in during Patriots week?? Controversy in Green Bay! Tape at 11.)
McCarthy said the team would “err on the side of caution” with Rodgers. Basically we’ll know Rodgers’ status based on his practice availability later in the week.
The Packers are also expected to be without their best defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins for another two weeks.
