GREEN BAY–No news is becoming bad news as the Packers move toward Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
“Aaron did a little more today in the individual work. I have no clarity; I’m sorry,” Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Thursday, when he was asked for an update on quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ potential availability for Sunday’s game. “Aaron Rodgers has not been cleared by the medical staff. Until he has been cleared by the medical staff, he will not be able to play.”
With only one full practice remaining between now and Sunday, it’s becoming increasingly likely Matt Flynn will be the Packers’ starting quarterback against the Falcons. Rodgers was officially listed as having been a “limited” participant in Thursday’s practice.
Meanwhile, left tackle David Bakhtiari was absent from practice due to illness, and center Evan Dietrich-Smith didn’t practice due to a knee/ankle injury.
Packers.com will provide a full report from McCarthy’s press conference.
