GREEN BAY–Packers Coach Mike McCarthy has not ruled Aaron Rodgers out for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
“Aaron Rodgers has not been cleared by the medical staff. Aaron Rodgers will practice tomorrow in a limited fashion, and we have not ruled him out for the game yet,” McCarthy told reporters on Tuesday. “Aaron wants to play; it’s a medical situation. He has a clear understanding of where he is, as far as getting back on the field.”
McCarthy said quarterback Matt Flynn would take the “starter reps” when the Packers begin on-field preparation on Wednesday for Sunday’s game.
“Aaron wants to play. When he’s healthy, he’ll be given the opportunity to play,” McCarthy added, denying rumors that the Packers are considering not returning Rodgers to action this season.
