The Packers need to beat the Bears in Chicago this Sunday in order to win the NFC North division and make the playoffs. In related news, the Packers also will need their best offensive weapon in order to make that happen.

And still, nobody seems to know if Aaron Rodgers will be healthy enough to play this week for Green Bay. Including the man himself.

He told ESPN Milwaukee during his weekly radio show Tuesday that he's had another scan on his broken collarbone in the past 24 hours, and in just two days, we should know the answer on his availability for Sunday.

"Thursday, one way or another, there will be a definitive conclusion," Rodgers said.

Other than that, it's just a guessing game, Rodgers said.

Those four people are Rodgers, coach Mike McCarthy, general manager Ted Thompson and the team doctor.

Rodgers said he felt great at practice last week, and though it seemed that Rodgers might have a chance to play in Week 16, it was later reported that his availability was always in extreme doubt.
