Packers Left With Tough Decision On Rodgers Return

Rodgers, 34, has been sidelined since suffering a broken collarbone in October's 23-10 National Football League loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Clay Matthews even joked that Rodgers looked so good during the rehab process that the Packers shouldn't have put him on injured reserve. Rodgers underwent a CT scan on Monday, and doctors are still evaluating the results.

"It is now in the evaluation stage".

"There's a number of medical opinions involved in the decision". "But this is a medical decision".

Rodgers is expected to practice in full Wednesday as the Packers prepare to take on the Panthers in Carolina.

White also responded to Arum's criticism saying that UFC was "cratering" and White "needed boxing to save himself" . He also admitted, however, the UFC needs to make a decision on the future of its 155-pound division.

Prior to Rodgers going down in Week 6, Nelson was averaging 4.8 catches, 57.5 yards and 1.5 touchdowns in four full games with the star signal caller.

"First of all, I'm told Aaron Rodgers wants to play very, very badly". The Packers placed Rodgers on injured reserve with the designation to return and he was eligible to return this week. Brett Hundley stepped in and the Packers (7-6) have gone 3-5 since. Sunday's game against the Panthers (9-4) has serious playoff implications and the Packers hope Rodgers can give them the boost they need to reach the playoffs for a ninth straight season.

The Pack may have to run the table, or at least win both the road games, in order to finish off this storybook ending.
