Packers Left With Tough Decision On Rodgers Return

Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in week six of the season against Minnesota Vikings

They play the Vikings on December 23 in Lambeau. "But it's a medical decision". "It's now in the evaluation stage". There's a number of medical opinions that will be involved in the decision.

"Well if he comes back, like I've been saying, arguably the best quarterback in the league, back to your team, everyone is going to get better", Matthews said after Sunday's overtime win at Cleveland. "That's where it stands". "Not only him being out there, but also the shot in the arm as we talk about him coming back".

With Rodgers' status still up in the air at this time, Nelson is projected for 6.7 FanDuel points at $7,200 this week. The Packers placed Rodgers on injured reserve with the designation to return and he was eligible to return this week. With no one but the inexperienced Brett Hundley behind their perennial MVP candidate, things looked bleak, and a 1-4 record in the first five Rodgers-less games did nothing to dispel that idea.

Verizon to stream National Football League games on all carrier networks
Through its digital and mobile properties, Verizon said it reaches more than 200 million unique viewers in the U.S. Fritzsche noted the partnership comes as many tech companies are increasingly interested in sports content.

Rodgers threw for 1,385 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions in the six games he appeared in this season.

This is what the Packers need, though, if they want to make a run.

With Rodgers back in the saddle, the emergence of wide receiver Davante Adams as a Pro Bowl-caliber talent and a running games that's been sparked by rookies Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones, a playoff run now seems very possible.
