The Packers got the win they needed to stay in the playoff hunt on Sunday, but they still don’t know if they’ll have they’ll have Aaron Rodgers back in the lineup.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Rodgers still hasn’t been medically cleared to return from the broken left collarbone that has kept him out for the last five games. That’s where things were last week as well, so there won’t be any update to his status until he visits with doctors.
That will come on Wednesday morning after Rodgers is evaluated. Rodgers was able to get on the practice field last week, McCarthy said he felt better Friday than he did on Wednesday, so a green light on the medical side is likely all that needs to happen for Rodgers to start in Week 15. Matt Flynn was 24-of-32 for 258 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday’s win.
McCarthy also said that running back Eddie Lacy has a sprained ankle and that it is too early to say whether he’ll be able to play next weekend. Lacy was able to finish the game after getting hurt just before halftime.
