Report: Packers "Pessimistic" About Rodgers' Status

Aaron Rodgers hasn't played since November 4, when he suffered a broken collarbone



    It’s looking like the Dallas Cowboys and their struggling defense might dodge former NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers when the Green Bay Packers come to town this Sunday.

    ESPN’s Ed Werder reported this week that members of the Packers organization are “pessimistic” about Rodgers’ chances of being cleared in time to play against the Cowboys this week at AT&T Stadium. Rodgers hasn’t played since November 4, when he suffered a fractured collarbone in a loss to the Chicago Bears.

    Rodgers admitted this week that he experienced more pain than he anticipated in drills last week, and that if things don’t improve, he doubts he’ll be ready for Dallas.

    "We would need different results and different responses to be able to get on the field this week," Rodgers said.
