There won’t be a game-time decision to make about Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers quarterback, who has yet to be medically cleared or officially ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Falcons, said Wednesday that there would be a call on his status before Sunday.

“It wouldn’t be fair to Matt Flynn to make a decision on his status on the day of the game,” Rodgers said. “I don’t think that’s fair to Matt if we do that. I think by Friday or Saturday at the latest there will be a decision.”

Rodgers said that there were three tests he needed to pass to get cleared — strength, range of motion and the scan of the bone — and that he’s only passed two of them at the moment. The scan of the collarbone was taken on Tuesday and Rodgers said the results weren’t “the greatest news,” but declined to discuss specifics about the results or his expectations.

“I don’t think that’s appropriate,” Rodgers said. “There’s enough people who are supposedly getting leaks from this organization that can make their own assumptions.”

The assumption that matters the most for the Packers right now is the negative one most people are probably making about Rodgers’ chances of playing in Week 14.
