Aaron Rodgers talks with quarterback Matt Flynn on the bench during Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Aaron Rodgers: Nothing new - still waiting clearance for takeoff

The best news coming out of Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy’s press conference today was supposed to center around Aaron Rodgers‘ being cleared to play Sunday. That didn’t occur.

For Rodgers, it will once again be the status quo. Rodgers is still not medically cleared, according to McCarthy, and the plan is for him to continue to practice as a limited participant, just as he did last week.



So, once again the Packers will string out a decision on Rodgers through the week. He will continue to practice with the team, but where he will be by this coming Friday is anyone’s guess.

That decision, as we all know is in the hands of the medical experts. For those of us who were expecting the clouds to part and the horns to sound today are surely disappointed with this news, but given the conservative nature of the Packers medical people and the fact that McCarthy doesn’t want to tip his hand too soon to the opposition, it all adds up to the team taking the same tactic as they have the past couple of weeks.

In other injury news, wide receiver Randall Cobb is also a limited participant at practice, but McCarthy said he is looking good.

And while running back Eddie Lacy was held out once again from practice, it was done only as a precautionary measure. Lacy, who injured his ankle two weeks ago against the Atlanta Falcons, is expected to be ready to play come Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Here we sit once again not knowing much more, if any more, than we knew a week ago.

Stay tuned …
