No news yet on Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers Watch: Still no update, per Coach Mike McCarthy

However last Wednesday the Packers placed the rookie on injured reserve, a decision that's having a ripple effect on Green Bay's pass defense. He is eligible to return to the active roster in Week 15, but coach Mike McCarthy said he still needs to be cleared for contact. His players seemed hopeful.

Aaron Rodgers (I.R., collarbone) will undergo a CT scan this week.

It was originally thought that the 33-year-old two-time NFL MVP would miss the rest of the season, although there remained hope he would return for the play-offs, if the Packers make it.

"It is now in the evaluation stage", McCarthy said on Monday afternoon.

"It's in the evaluation process. I'd like to know as soon as possible", McCarthy said. Frankly, it would be best for Aaron ro know.

"In his mind, he's ready to go".

Launch of SpaceX Falcon 9 with CRS-13 Dragon slips 24 hours
This is the thirteenth of up to 20 missions to the International Space Station that SpaceX is contracted to fly for NASA. The 45th Space Wing's weather forecast says the only weather concern for the planned 11:46 a.m. launch is high winds.

But the franchise quarterback was still waiting for medical clearance.

The team's doctor is reviewing the scans, and because of the number of medical opinions, there is no time table for a decision.

Most likely, McCarthy is downplaying the return for some reason (perhaps so the Carolina Panthers can't get an early jump on game-planning for Rodgers), and Rodgers will be back as everyone expects. The two-time NFL MVP returned to practice December 2 on what McCarthy called a "trial return". Per Rapoport, Rodgers has looked "incredible" since resuming practice last week. "He had a lot of pressure on him so far", said wide receiver Davante Adams after Sunday's win over Cleveland. Everything we have seen suggests that will happen, and Rodgers will be ready to face the Panthers next Sunday. For now the Packers must press on with Hundley until a final decision is made on Rodgers, when that will be is still a mystery.

It will still be a tough road to return to the postseason with three games left, whether or not Rodgers returns.

With the Vikings dropping to the Panthers in Carolina and the Philadelphia Eagles beating the Los Angeles Rams this weekend, the number one seed switched back from the Vikings (who held it for a week) to the Eagles (who held it for most of the season).

"But frankly, he has (spent) an extraordinary amount of time in the rehab part of it", McCarthy said. I don't think that teams that have never won a championship can really get picky about the How behind it, as the key is just winning.
