Packers' Rodgers Still Not Medically Cleared

Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is practicing in a limited capacity but still has not yet been medically cleared for game action, it was announced on Wednesday afternoon by head coach Mike McCarthy.

“We’ll see how he is [on Thursday] and we’ll set a plan. Aaron is still not medically cleared," McCarthy said. "Is he playing in the game or is he medically cleared? They are two different issues. My interest is to see how he feels [Thursday] after his work [Wednesday.]"

Rodgers has missed the past five games with a fractured collarbone that he suffered Nov. 4 against the Chicago Bears, an injury that needs an estimated six to eight weeks for recovery.

Matt Flynn would be in line to get the start in Rodgers' absence, a role he has filled the past two weeks and led the team to a (1-1) record.
