Packers | Aaron Rodgers taking a risk if he returns

Medical experts believe Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to be cleared to play in Week 15 because he is less than six weeks removed from suffering his broken collarbone. Complete bone formation typically takes eight to 10 weeks, meaning he'd be risking more serious injury if he played before the eight weeks. The Packers' medical staff is among the most conservative in the league in returning players to the field too soon. "We would need different results and different responses to be able to get on the field this week," Rodgers said.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking highly unlikely that Rodgers plays this weekend again, and depending on the outcome of the game, he could very well be shut down for the rest of the regular season. We fully expect Matt Flynn to start against the Dallas Cowboys.
