Aaron Rodgers Still Not Cleared
Green Bay Packers fans have to be getting a little antsy.
The Packers are 0.5 games back of Chicago with two games to play, and their star quarterback is still not cleared to play.
Rodgers is practicing, but is limited due to his recovery from a fractured collarbone.
Head coach Mike McCarthy told ESPN Milwaukee’s Jason Wilde that Rodgers hasn’t been cleared, and the team is taking it week by week. “Well, we’re going to take the week. We’re going to take the same process or similar process we took last week. Aaron is doing better. He still has not been cleared by the medical staff. He was a limited practice participant, so it was a similar work pattern that he did last week. Threw the ball extremely well. Looked sharp. He’s getting better.”
The decision for Rodgers to play will be made by team doctor Dr. Pat McKenzie.
The Packers play at home against Pittsburgh this week, and then travel to Chicago in Week 17.
