The Green Bay Packers are reportedly pessimistic about quarterback Aaron Rodgers playing this week, according to Ed Werder.
Packers pessimistic about Aaron Rodgers being cleared for Dallas. Scheduled for practice today but source says playing inside 8 weeks risky

Rodgers said yesterday that he felt some pain after practicing last week. He only worked in individual drills during the week.
The Packers have scheduled Rodgers for another round of tests with the team doctor today.
Frankly, at this point, we’re not expecting Rodgers to play against Dallas on Sunday either. If that plays out, we’ll get another week of Matt Flynn.
Whoever plays, they’ll be facing the worst pass defense in the NFL. That’s the good news.
The bad news is, if the Packers don’t win, they’re probably out of the playoff race. The team is a half game back of Detroit and Chicago for the division lead.
Detroit has Baltimore at home this week and Chicago is at Cleveland.
