Packers HC Mike McCarthy told reporters on Monday that QB Aaron Rodgers‘ chances of playing against the Lions on Thursday are “slim to none.”
McCarthy mentioned that Rodgers wants to play on Thursday, but after consulting with the medical staff, they elected to play it safe.
Once it was announced that Rodgers did in fact have a fractured collarbone, a return in Week 14 was floated as the most likely week for his return, but there is still no guarantee that he will be back by then. Green Bay’s medical staff is notoriously conservative and there is no way that they will risk a serious injury with Rodgers.
We’ll have more regarding his status as the news is available.
