As expected, Aaron Rodgers was a limited participant in practice for the Green Bay Packers today. He took part only in individual drills and was limited there.
Rodgers was only allowed to throw short and intermediate passes, although there were multiple reports that he looked sharp doing so.
So now what? There was speculation that the Packers would run the same tests later in the week that they did on Tuesday to see if Rodgers is doing any better.
Not the case. Coach Mike McCarthy said the team is just following their rehab plan the rest of the week.
“There will be no more further scans,” McCarthy said. “We’ll follow the protocol of rehab to determine his availability. They have a plan for him to progress. Hopefully, tomorrow he’ll be able to do more.”
Essentially, what that means is Rodgers will have to progress to his full arsenal of throws and ultimately, practice with the offense on Friday.
Frankly, it seems unlikely that that’s going to happen.
Although word out of Atlanta is the Falcons are preparing to face Rodgers, they’ll probably be facing Matt Flynn.
No Rodgers, we lose.
Are you related to Alan Smithee?
Agree, Monty, Rodgers seems doubtful for Sunday.
It is Wednesday and he isn’t throwing long distance? Forget about it.
Favre would do something crazy like starting on Sunday after not throwing long distance on Wednesday, but say whatever you will about Joe Bob, that guy was a freak when it came to playing.
Favre played during a time when players could chose whether to play or not. Players no longer have the say so. If the coach or the Docs say “no”, players cannot play anyways.
If Flynn plays we are losing, especially if theres any wind over 5mph….guy has a butter arm.
No more scans?
or no more scans this week?
I still don’t get why Flynn is getting starter’s reps.
So he can audible to an expected run?
or a pass he can’t complete?
Good question. If there are no more scans, it goes to logic, no more scans are needed, hence he is healed up.
Lets not forget Rodgers was winging 50 yard passes on the field before the Detroit game.
As for Flynn, maybe those reports were true about his elbow, and that he didn’t have velocity on his passes. I like Flynn, he knows the offense. But during the Lions game, he really struggled with his passes. To be fair, i should note he had the Lions front 4 in his face all game.
I like Tolzien, he’s young, he plays with passion, he’s hungry, and he has a strong arm. If he could improve his accuracy, i’d be more than comfortable with him backing up Rodgers.
Agreed on Tolzien and Flynn, though it was more like the Lions front 8 in his face, and I dint believe the Packers would play him if he wasn’t healthy-one of the knocks on him has always been his arm strength.
I imagine docs are using CT scan to assess clavicle healing, and from the sound of it the bone isn’t fully united. I’d think that means at least a few more weeks- results won’t change faster than that with a repeat scan.
I don’t buy any of that. Rodgers had a fracture. My clavicle was completely broken, I was good to go in 6 weeks.
I dislocated my clavicle a little less than a year ago and I’m still not anywhere near 100%
I never heard of a dislocated clavicle.
I guess if Rodgers dislocated his collarbone, your post would be relevant.
Collarbone=colloquial term for clavicle.
Yea, we know, thanks.
Yes but did a 300lb line man try sitting on you? And a Trojan probably gives better protection than this o line
It was a fracture….he’s throwing 50 yard passes with no pain. Let the man play.
He is not far enough along. They will start Flynn. I am not worried about Flynn as much as I am worried about our beat up offensive line and shithead defense! Yes the are playing like complete shit! I hope we see something out of them in the form of tackles and FUCKING PASS PROTECTION!!!
It isn’t going to make a difference if he plays or not. Let’s get real here, the packers are the last team in the hunt for a playoff spot. Hypothetically speaking, if by some miraculous turn of events should occur and they land a wild ward spot, are they going to get passed that first round playoff game?? With that shitty O line and banged up defense, I don’t see them advancing to the divisional. Face it, we’re done for the season. We should start looking for forward to 2014, the Pack will be back. GO PACK GO!!!!
So you’re comparing yourself to an nfl qb who is getting hit by 260+lb dl, worse comparison you could make
Do you mean the penultimate Lions game?
It actually wasn’t, there were a number of underthrown deep balls, especially sideline routes, that his receivers had to make good plays on. Point in case the Nelson long TD, if Jordy hadn’t been so open (against a secondary so pathetic and depleted they make the Pack’s current unit look like the All-Century team) that pas would have been tipped or picked.
I like Flynn, but his arm strength isn’t his best asset.
