For those of you worried about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his availability for this weekend’s game, continue to be worried.
Rodgers did not practice on Wednesday, while he continues to recover from his second concussion of the season.
Although the move wasn’t unexpected, it casts further doubt over whether Rodgers will be available to play this weekend, when the Packers face the New England Patriots.
“He did not participate in any of the meetings, game-planning meetings and so forth. The plan for Aaron is he will not practice throughout the week and will go through the protocol involving every player that has a concussion,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “There is a slim-to-none chance that he will practice on Friday and the decision medically will be made on Aaron Rodgers on Saturday. That’s the plan in place, talking with the doctors and the rest of the medical staff this morning.”
In his absence, Matt Flynn took the majority of the snaps at quarterback. Graham Harrell, who is on the Packers’ practice squad, also received some work and could be activated for this week’s game, if Rodgers can’t go.
