Official word just came down from the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers is out for Sunday.
Rodgers was limited again in practice on Friday and Matt Flynn led the first-team offense. Prior to Mike McCarthy’s Friday press conference, the injury report was read. Rodgers was listed as out.
When McCarthy came up, he said this.
“Aaron is not ready to go. He’s out for the game.”
So, Matt Flynn it is. Are you excited? We’re excited!
Of course, this shouldn’t come as unexpected news. Although Rodgers said he planned on playing this week, he had a scan of his injured collarbone on Tuesday and found he wasn’t as far along as he hoped.
All Rodgers has done in practice this week is work individually throwing the football.
McCarthy termed Rodgers’ mindset as frustrated.
Kind of like the fan base, you mean?
