Packers Say They’re in No Position to Talk Aaron Rodgers’ Injury Status, Which Should Alarm Fans
While all of Green Bay is in pandemonium during this tough stretch without starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, all the former MVP is trying to do is hurry back to the field before it’s too late. The Green Bay Packers aren’t exactly in a favorable position to make a run at the NFC North, but they believe with Rodgers back in time they might have a shot.
The problem is, though, that Rodgers’ return isn’t quite set in stone; in fact, far from it. After suffering a broken collarbone November 4th, Rodgers was recently quoted saying that this is a “serious” injury and at the moment, there’s no telling when he’ll be back.
No really, they’re not telling; not because they don’t want to, but apparently because they can’t.
Head coach Mike McCarthy was asked about a possible return date for Rodgers yet again on Wednesday and had this to say:
“It’s a medical decision; I think he’s addressed it,” he said according to ESPN. “You’re talking about the healing of a bone, so until [team physician] Dr. [Pat] McKenzie and Aaron feel like we’re in a spot to talk about playing, we’ll talk about it. That did not happen today.”
The fact that Rodgers hasn’t even had an X-ray done recently should worry some fans. On top of that, their own coach doesn’t even want to speak about Rodgers’ potential return. Saying the team isn’t even in a position to talk about playing seems a bit odd.
Whatever he meant by that, whether or not there was some underlying concern as to the extent of the injury, we might never know. What we do know is that the man himself, Rodgers, has admitted this is a very serious injury. The fate of the Packers’ season now rests in the hands of Scott Tolzien running the offense, and Tolzien’s reign may last longer than originally planned.
