No More Tests for Aaron Rodgers
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.
