Well, it just keeps getting worse when it comes to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
We know he wants to play, but he admitted today that he felt pain when he practiced last week. That translated into another week on the sidelines.
“It’s frustrating; it’s very frustrating because it’s a waiting game,” Rodgers said on his radio show.
“I’m obviously trying to push it to come back before science tells you is even possible,” Rodgers said. “I don’t think you’re seeing anybody out there coming back at four or five weeks from this type of injury to do some of the things I’d like to do back on the field. It’s tough to not be out there with the guys.”
Ultimately, Rodgers’ fractured collarbone will be evaluated by the Packers team doctor on Wednesday.
He should be able to do more in practice this week than he did last week, but obviously is no certainty to play on Sunday.
The Packers will prep Matt Flynn to start in the meantime.
It’s starting to sound like Rodgers, like us, is beginning to wonder if he’ll play at all again this season.
Even if they win NFC North by dome miracle they will be hard pressed to get past the first round considering the potential playoff team scenario….
I’d sit #12 for remainder of 2013.
Flynn is not long-term solution….
Give Scotty Tolzien on field experience to develop a viable backup in prep for next time QB #1 goes down…
Crap. Amazing what one fluke play does. Rodgers doesn’t go down and we win at LEAST two of those five non-wins and probably three. We’d be up two games in division. Shit I’d rather see Chicago go than Detroit. Give mckniwn his props. Wish we had a quality backup . . .
There’s still a chance we do. Honestly I’d be a bit surprised if the Bears re-sign Cutler to a long-term deal, if at all; one major factor would be Marshall, still.
Remember when MM said “Aaron Rodgers will be having no more tests..”
Either he is that fucking stupid or our medical staff is actually worse than we thought it was.
Oh and I love Arodge but dude: man the fuck up. Dont complain about a little pain in your non throwing should you pussy. Tell the docs everything feels great and get in the fucking huddle. You are a football player not a fucking golfer. Christ where is Brett Favre when you need him. Fucking premaddona Rodgers.
