Aaron Rodgers, everybody’s saying, thought he was ready to play, but the $120 million man got put in his place by the team doctor.

The news came a few minutes ago when head coach Mike McCarthy made the announcement at his Friday press conference.

Here are running tweets from the reporters who were in the room:

    If Packer fans hope to see Rodgers throw another pass this season,the defense needs to play like men possessed and Flynn needs to play fast even when not in hurry-up offense..get rid of the ball.I have regrettably,more faith in the latter….GO PACK GO !!! :)

    Flynn against Dallas. Regardless of results, Rodgers should play last two games.

    The doctor has been around a long long time, and knows football injuries. In case any fans or hot-headed reporters haven’t heard, football can be a violent sport, especially if you are a target with the ball in your hands. Even more important for those who are just sooo’ stressed out with no 12 behind center, they can’t take in anymore, re-injury to such an injury can be fatal – as in extremely dangerous, and even fatal. Such ab injury can have the injured back to work in 4 – 5 weeks, at a desk job.
