Rodgers: Doctors look at his collarbone again

GREEN BAY (WAOW) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday that he's had another medical scan of his left collarbone but fans will have to wait until after Christmas to find out whether he is fully healed and can play Sunday.

I can say definitively there will be, Thursday, one way or another, there will be a definitive conclusion to this week’s unknown,” Rodgers said on his ESPN radio show in Milwaukee.

Rodgers has been out since Nov. 4, when he fractured his left collarbone in the first series of a 27-20 loss to Chicago.

The Packers, 5-2 at the time, are now 7-7-1 but play the Chicago Bears in Chicago on Sunday in what amounts to a playoff game. The winner wins the NFC North title and will host a playoff game.

It’s going to be one of those classic Bears-Packers games,” Rodgers said on the radio show. “Lance (Briggs) is back (for the Bears). That adds a lot. They’ve had some injuries. … It’s a solid, veteran group.”

Three quarterbacks have started for the Packers since Rodgers got hurt, with Matt Flynn starting the last four games.
