Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy would not guarantee that QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) will return to face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14. "I just know when we came off the field Wednesday that he wasn't ready to play yet," McCarthy added. "So, we'll see how the testing goes. But it needs to be the right thing. I know he wants to play, I know he's trying to gear up each and every week to play, but we'll see what happens next week." Rodgers isn't convinced that his collarbone is completely healed yet and is concerned about his strength and flexibility.
Continue to be patient. Whether Rodgers plays next weekend will be determined by how he fares in practice next week. Monitor his progress and return him to your starting lineup if he comes back against the Falcons.
