This is, of course, contingent on Green Bay still being in playoff contention and Rodgers receiving medical clearance to return from the broken collarbone he sustained a few months ago.
In order for the Packers to have a real shot at making the playoffs this year, they’re going to need wins over the Buccaneers and Browns.
On Saturday, the Packers officially designated Rodgers to return from injured reserve. This officially opens a three-week window of time for the Raiders to add him to their active roster or he’ll spend the duration of the 2017 season on injured reserve.
Rodgers suffered a displaced collarbone fracture that required two plates and 13 screws inserted to help solidify the fracture and accelerate the healing process.
Rodgers, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2005. He’s currently in the fifth year of his seven-year, $130.75 million contract that included $54 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $12.55 million and $19.8 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, Rodgers has appeared in six games for the Packers and thrown for 1,385 yards while completing 66.3 percent of his passes to go along with 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. He has also rushed for 83 yards.
