QB | Aaron Rodgers | Green Bay Packers | Injury, Fantasy
The status of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (concussion) for the team's Week 15 game is uncertain, according to Michael Hunt, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He was a little shaky," TE Andrew Quarless said. "I tried to help him up. I could tell right away he was a little woozy. I could see it in his eyes." Rodgers stayed in the game and was sacked for a loss of 13 yards on the next play. Rodgers completed a four-yard pass to RB Brandon Jackson before leaving the game. After the game, head coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers was lucid. "I can't really measure the level of his concussion right now," McCarthy said. "It's something that they'll go through protocol. I was told that his head is clear and he has a headache. He was kind of groggy after those plays that he stayed in there. That's when we made the decision to pull him. I don't have the specifics on how he was feeling. It's the opinion of the medical staff and of Aaron, and it was best for him not to go."
