Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers Take A Step Closer To Return

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Green Bay Packers’ fans are sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear news in regards to whether quarterback Aaron Rodgers will suit up against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The good news is the superstar signal caller will take another step closer to his return.

“He is not cleared to play, but he will practice tomorrow (Wednesday) and he has not been ruled out for Sunday against Atlanta,” head coach Mike McCarthy said, according to the team’s website.

Obviously, Green Bay’s playoff hopes rest in the balance, and it will all come down to whether Rodgers plays the last four games. The Packers will need to win out the regular season in order to have a shot at clinching the NFC North division, which is the only realistic chance they have of clinching a playoff berth. After the team went 0-4-1 since Rodgers went down with a fractured collarbone, it’s clear that the only way they can win is with him under center.

At this point, the fact he hasn’t been ruled out is good. Not to mention, Rodgers desperately wants to start against the Falcons. Unfortunately, it’s not up to him whether he gets into the game.

“Aaron wants to play, but it’s a medical situation,” McCarthy added. “He feels good and we’ll see what he can do tomorrow.”

McCarthy made it known that backup Matt Flynn will get the starter reps on Wednesday, which means Rodgers will be doing a light practice. It’s important for him to test his collarbone as much as possible in the days leading up to the game so that McCarthy and the medical staff can make a decision.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
