Aaron Rodgers Not Cleared, But Progressing
Yesterday, Aaron Rodgers took some first-team reps for the Green Bay Packers. Today, he took some more.
Rodgers is still considered limited, but reports are that he opened practice as the No. 1 quarterback. Before you get too excited, Matt Flynn also took reps as the No. 1 quarterback.
So here’s the breakdown.
Coach Mike McCarthy called Rodgers limited. He also said he progressed from yesterday’s practice and will ultimately be evaluated on Friday, which will determine if he’ll play this week against the Dallas Cowboys.
What does that tell us?
Not a hell of a lot.
It tells us QB1 hasn’t been ruled out this week. It also tells us there’s no guarantee that he’ll play this week.
There’s hope, though!
We wouldn’t bet the house on Rodgers playing on Sunday, but at least we’re moving the right direction.
