Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was in full Bill Belichick mode in his postgame press conference when asked about the status of starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
McCarthy was asked about four different times about Rodgers’ injured left shoulder and kept coming back to the same answer.
“No timeline. No exact diagnosis. That’s where we’re at,” McCarthy said.
Rodgers injured his non-throwing shoulder in the first quarter when sacked by Shea McClellin. Backup Seneca Wallace completed 11 of 19 passes for 114 yards and an interception while being sacked four times.
“He has a shoulder injury. (The doctors) want to run more tests. They don’t have an exact diagnosis is where we are,” McCarthy said.
Rodgers and Wallace are the only two quarterbacks on the Packers’ active roster. If Rodgers is forced to miss any amount of time, the Packers will need to add an additional quarterback to their roster. Scott Tolzien is on the Packers’ practice squad and could get elevated to the active roster. Former Green Bay backup Matt Flynn was also released by the Buffalo Bills Monday and could be a potential option to return to the team.
