Tomorrow the first day Aaron Rodgers can practice

If the Packers practiced today, Aaron Rodgers would be eligible to join them. But since they don’t, tomorrow’s the day everyone will be watching.

And at this point, the signs continue to point to some degree of involvement.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network just threw out the “don’t be surprised to see him out there tomorrow,” which is something a little bit short of a report but provides the right to use a retroactive #asexpected when/if it happens.

Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews has already mentioned that they probably shouldn’t have put him on IR to begin with, and Rodgers got everyone excited with his public display during warm-ups last Sunday night in Pittsburgh.

The bigger question remains whether it will “make sense” for Rodgers to return from the broken collarbone this year, with the Packers 5-6 and on the skinniest brach of the playoff possibility tree.

If Brett Hundley can engineer wins against the Buccaneers and Browns the next two weeks (possible), and Rodgers continues to show progress (ask the doctor), the potential for a Week 15 return against the Panthers remains a possibility.

  1. One eye open, one eye closed on this one. If the Packers aren’t mathematically out of it by the time he’s ready, I say let him sit and heal 110%. If they still have a chance, hell yes, put him in.

  2. If they’re still in the hunt and he can play you have to bring him back. If they’re eliminated then you rest him and look to the offseason. The next couple weeks should bring a lot more clarity on things.

  3. how shocking! not! just a pr stunt by the packers to make him look farve like when he comes back. if he plays again it means it was not that bad an injury as they claimed to begin with.

    Typical packer response. Put him in even though another hit may end his career. Even if he can get you a wildcard it will be one and done. Why risk it. #dontlookatme

  6. If I were advising AR, I’d tell him to walk into Ted Thompson’s office and inform TT that he has played his last game for GB. Why? Because TT will never surround AR with the weapons, both offensively and defensively, to win another SB.

    TT is the WORST GM in the NFL. A skinflint who won’t talk to the press unless by rule he is mandated to do so, and throws his coach under the bus by walking away after disappointing losses.

    Fire the guy.

  7. so let me get this straight.. he breaks it oct 15th. surgery oct 20th..so its only been 42 days since surgery (6 weeks) and its all healed and he can take hits? I don’t buy it

    “Will never”… Were you watching from 2010-2011? That was 1 of the 5 best offenses of all-time.

    They’ve been a top 5-10 unit for a decade now.

    Rodgers is probably the biggest reason for that, but you can’t say the offense isn’t good enough.

    .. the 2011-2013 Drafts are this teams downfall. Thompson only got 4 players those 3 years, and its killing them.

    I think the defense is filling out at this point. Good young talent (Martinez, HHC-D, Clark, King, Jones) good role players (Ryan, Lowry, Evans) They desperately need a pass rusher, and they need to dump that archaic, past-due-date scheme.

  9. After reading all the comments on here, I *CANNOT* wait until the purples get smoked in their first round of the playoffs!

    Maybe the Packers get a Wild Card spot, maybe they don’t. But I do know one thing – the Vikings ain’t winning squat this year. Unless they somehow magically overnight become better than the Eagles (or hell, even better than the Saints for that matter)….

    They are one and done!

    Not sure why so many dislike your comment. It’s logical. And an easy decision to make. No, I don’t think they’ll be in a position for it to matter, but you have to proceed as if it will.

    We could fill a warehouse with what you don’t know.

    Vikings crushed Saints and Rams. Rams crushed Saints. But you just “know” the Saints will now beat the Vikings? And seriously, nobody knows how good the Eagles are, with that weak schedule. They’ve played two teams with winning records, and they lost one of them. The Eagles may be one and done in the playoffs. Nobody knows.

    BTW: You might want to check who was the NFC Offensive Player of the month for November. Hint: It was not Wentz or Brees.
