GREEN BAY–A decision on Aaron Rodgers’ availability for this Sunday’s game in Chicago will likely be announced earlier this week than it has in the past.
“Aaron Rodgers? A lot of conversation going on. Hopefully, we can get the question answered sooner than later,” Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday.
“Aaron wants to play. He fully accepts and understands everything that is going on with his injury. This is clearly a decision for Ted Thompson and I. I think it’s important for us to make a quicker decision.”
McCarthy was asked about the re-injury Clay Matthews sustained to his thumb on Sunday.
“His injury evaluation is still going on. I don’t have anything to report on Clay. The training staff didn’t feel very good about Clay,” McCarthy said.
