No one knows anything about when Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will return from a broken collarbone. That includes Rodgers himself.
From Jason Wilde: Reached via text message Thursday morning, the Green Bay Packers quarterback said he still isn’t sure whether he’ll be able to return this season.
Rodgers had surgery on October 19. He’s been in Southern California since. However, Rodgers will return to Green Bay on Monday. There, hopefully he can help Brett Hundley play better and talk some sense into Mike McCarthy. Although we doubt the latter is even possible.
We don’t call him Buffoon for nothing.
It’s gone downhill since Rodgers was lost against the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers came into that game at 4-1. They’re 0-2 when Hundley plays.
In the first game, the injury calamity along the offensive line continued and Hundley couldn’t do anything. In the second game, the Packers’ defense was a joke in the second half and Hundley was held to under 100 yards passing.
Perhaps the Packers can ride running back Aaron Jones like they rode Eddie Lacy the last time Rodgers broke his collarbone. Jones, who has taken the No. 1 running back job from Ty Montgomery, has 346 yards and is averaging 5.6 yards per carry.
Of course, Hundley and the defense will also need to play better for Jones to even matter.
If the Packers fall out of the playoff race, this becomes a moot point. No playoffs, no Rodgers.
