Packers coach Mike McCarthy brought no closure to the Aaron Rodgers watch Thursday, but did shine some light on another injury absence.
McCarthy said that defensive tackle Johnny Jolly sustained a “significant” injury, and was ruled out for Sunday’s game. Jolly was listed on the injury report as having a shoulder/neck injury, after leaving last week’s win over the Cowboys in the first half.
Jolly has been a solid player for the Packers this year, making an impressive comeback from three seasons away from the game which included suspensions and jail time for a drug conviction.
As for Rodgers, he was again limited in practice Thursday. McCarthy said he looked good during the work he took part in, and would make an announcement on his status tomorrow.
Matt Flynn continued to take most of the reps in practice, and would start again unless Rodgers gets good news, fast.
