Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers practiced in pads for the first time since fracturing his collarbone, today.
He also did some additional work in individual drills, but didn’t practice with the offense. Matt Flynn took the snaps with the No. 1 unit there.
Yesterday, Rodgers was limited to short and intermediate throws, so he’s progressing.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers hasn’t been cleared by doctors yet, though.
“He has not been cleared yet. If he wants to share details, he can,” McCarthy said. “He’s doing better, he’s a step closer. I have not ruled him out.”
Yesterday, the Packers said they would make a decision on Rodgers’ availability for the Falcons game on Friday or Saturday.
Our guess is you’re going to get another week of Matt Flynn.
Hey, JC Tretter practiced today. Maybe we can get him to play center and move Lang back to guard where he belongs.
By the love of God, get Sean Richardson on the field.
In a way, it makes sense for Matt Flynn to play this week. I know the season is hanging in the balance, but the Packers need to know if Flynn can be the man he was in 2011 or not. The Falcon’s D has been shitty. If Flynn can’t get it done against them, then you let him go and Tolzien becomes our regular back up.
Hey, JC Tretter had virtual no OTA’s and no training camp. Not only has he never played center, or in a NFL game, he hasn’t even had a camp. So umm…Yea.
Would love to see Rogers back but think it is too early to play on frozen concrete with still mending bones. High of 23 degree with chance for snow on Sunday. If we can’t beat the woeful Falcons with Fynn, our running game and a blitzing D with the Claymaker we aren’t go to do anything in the playoffs anyway. I think Flynn CAN light up the dirty birds and another week would make Rogers healthier when we do the beatdown of the Cowpokes. Go Pack Go!
What does the rule book say about a player going back in the pocket while using a segway?
This just in…. Mike Mc Carthy has hired Gordy Howe, George Blanda and Cal Ripkin to advise the players how to avoid injuries and extend their careers.
one small step for man….
After reading more about this patchwork offensive line, even this most diehard of Packer fans is questioning exposing AARod (and Lacy for that matter) to potential disaster. And that has nothing to do with his collarbone (which I believe is probably healed).
How about this…if we’re in the game Sunday by half, and Detroit is losing, we bring him in to close out the game and season. If not, he sits. Something I could live with.
If Rodgers is ready to go you don’t bring him in at half, that said he ain’t ready, at least not physically.
