Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy just announced at his Friday press conference that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is out Sunday vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers. Matt Flynn will get the start.
McCarthy on Rodgers’ injury:
He’s not medically cleared. As an organization, we don’t feel as an organization at this time that this is the right time for him to play.
It looks as though the Green Bay Packers will once again be without the services of quarterback Aaron Rodgers this weekend when they face the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has yet to receive medical clearance as he recovers from a broken collarbone suffered over a month ago, and it looks like he won’t be cleared in time to play Sunday:
Packers not expecting Aaron Rodgers to play Sunday vs Steelers unless, as one source said, “something significantly changes with doctor.”

Here is what Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday after practice:
“Looked very good at practice. would state him ready to play. But once again we’re going through the process, make sure we’re getting Matt (Flynn) ready to play. Matt took the majority of reps (in practice today).”
“Didn’t take a lot of reps with the team but felt pretty good out there, was feeling good. It’s obviously a medical decision and an organizational decision at this point.”
It will be up to Matt Flynn to lead the Pack and keep them alive in the race for the NFC North and a spot in the NFC Playoffs.
