When he discussed his status yesterday, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t sound overly optimistic about his chances of returning this week.
Others are feeling the same vibe.
Ed Werder of ESPN describes the Packers as “pessimistic” about his chances of playing against the Cowboys Sunday, even though he’s going to try to practice today.
Rodgers was pointing in that direction himself yesterday, telling Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin that he was “trying to push it” last week and that he was still in too much pain from his broken collarbone to consider playing then.
The Packers are going to wait to do more scans until after today’s attempt, to see if he can get through without the kind of pain he had last week. If he can’t there’s not much point.
Besides, if the Packers can’t win and get some help this week, there might not be any point at all in continuing to wait.
