Packers coach Mike McCarthy generally has a press conference on Monday afternoons before spending Tuesday working on the game plan for the week without addressing the media.
Things will work a bit differently this week. As reported by the reporters on the Packers beat, the team announced that McCarthy won’t be holding his press conference on Monday and that he will meet with the media on Tuesday afternoon instead.
No reason was given for the postponement, but there have been several conflicting reports about quarterback Aaron Rodgers‘ health and his plans for a return to action this year. Rodgers is visiting with doctors to see how his collarbone is healing and moving things back a day should allow the Packers to have more certainty about where things stand at quarterback.
The Packers face the Falcons next Sunday and a loss will pretty much put a nail in the coffin for their playoff chances, so you’ll imagine they’ll take every possible minute before deciding that Rodgers will miss another game.
