Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers did more and looked better at practice than he did on Wednesday, something the quarterback agreed with when he spoke to the media later in the day.
As for what that means for his chances of playing, Rodgers said there were two conditions that needed to be met before he would be in the lineup. He would need to get the majority of the first-team reps and that he’d need a clean bill of health from an imaging scan of his left collarbone. Rodgers was cagey when asked if another test of that nature was scheduled for this week.
“I’m not sure about that,” Rodgers said, via Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin.
Rodgers likely knows whether or not there’s going to be another scan and McCarthy said that he would be evaluated medically again on Friday, but Rodgers probably doesn’t feel like the Cowboys need to know how realistic it is that he returns to the lineup one way or the other at this point in the week. The Packers will likely make their decision about starting Rodgers or Flynn on Friday, which means that Dallas and the rest of us won’t have to wait too much longer.
