Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been ruled out of playing in the team's game on Dec. 15 against the Dallas Cowboys, head coach Mike McCarthy announced on Friday afternoon.
The game will be the sixth straight missed by Rodgers since he fractured his collarbone on Nov. 4 against the Chicago Bears.
"The hurdle that I know Aaron wanted to get over, he achieved it this week," McCarthy said. "He feels really good. He felt like he was ready to play. But listening to all of the conversation, all of the facts and evaluation, it's in our best interest as a football team, as an organization for Aaron not to play in this game."
Matt Flynn will make his third straight start for the Packers since being signed in November as a free agent, having gone (1-1) in the two previous games.
