As you’d imagine, the first question that coach Mike McCarthy faced at his press conference had to do with the results of that examination. The answer left things as pretty much status quo at quarterback in Green Bay.
“Aaron Rodgers has not been cleared from medical staff. He will practice in a limited fashion tomorrow, not ruled out for game yet,” McCarthy said.
McCarthy did add that any conversations about shutting Rodgers down for the season came from outside the organization and that Rodgers will play as soon as he’s healthy enough to play.
The signs aren’t good that this will be the week that happens, though. Matt Flynn’s going to be taking the starter’s reps at practice on Wednesday as the team starts preparing to face the Falcons while Rodgers watches and waits for the green light that may not come in time to save the Packers’ season.
