McCarthy: Shutting down Rodgers not discussed; not ruled out Sunday
Aaron Rodgers hasn't been cleared to play for Week 14 yet. But he still could be at some point.
After undergoing more tests on his collarbone Tuesday to see how its healing -- and whether it will allow him to play anytime soon --the status of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still unknown.
Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday that Rodgers still hasn't been cleared to play, but he also wouldn't rule out Rodgers for Sunday. McCarthy said Rodgers will practice in a limited fashion Wednesday.
As far as the possibility of shutting down Rodgers at some point if Green Bay's playoff chances get too remote, McCarthy said that's not the team's mindset.
"We just think Matt's a little further along," McCarthy said. "He has a little more game experience."
As for Rodgers, McCarthy says his quarterback understands the precaution.
“Aaron wants to play; it’s a medical situation," he said. "He has a clear understanding of where he is, as far as getting back on the field.”
