Aaron Rodgers ruled out for Week 14
For the fifth-straight week, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won't play.
Earlier this week, coach Mike McCarthy said he wasn't looking to sit down Rodgers for the rest of the season but that he also wasn't ruling him out to play Sunday. On Tuesday, though, Rodgers still wasn't cleared to play.
"Aaron's frustrated," McCarthy told reporters. "We're in meetings all day together. He's like every other player fighting to get on the field."
Rodgers has been practicing on a limited basis, but clearly, the X-ray on his collarbone this week didn't give doctors enough confidence to let him play.
In Rodgers' absence, Matt Flynn will get the start vs. Atlanta.
"I haven't been medically cleared yet. But I am able to practice," Rodgers said this week. "Unfortunately for everybody involved, it's just going to be a waiting game. I won't be able to play if I'm not medically cleared ...
"When I'm ready to play and everyone is on board, then I'm going to play. I know there's a rush to get back out there. I feel it internally, but also externally. I desperately want to be out there, but it has to look good."
So far, it apparently doesn't look good enough.
