Aaron Rodgers 'Not Coming Back to Save' Packers in Return from Collarbone Injury
14 December, 2017, 18:15
The coaches were drawing up a game plan for Carolina and they surely wanted to know as soon as possible who their quarterback would be for Sunday's game.
The quarterback has missed almost two months because of his broken right collarbone.
"He has probably been throwing for four or five weeks", Carolina coach Ron Rivera said.
Rodgers playing quarterback the way he knows how to play it is kind of a Packers-saving attempt, however. Can he do permanent damage to the collarbone by re-injuring it? They need to do their part in order to win, but limiting their time on the field and maximizing the time the Green Bay offense is on the field is going to be key in order for the Packers to win this game.
Will we finally see Teddy Bridgewater? By all accounts, his recovery went as smoothly as the Packers could have hoped.
Despite Martellus Bennett's widely refuted remarks about McKenzie in October, the team's long-time doctor has a reputation as somone who doesn't cave in to coaches or players when evaluating injuries.
The Panthers insist they are not caught off guard by the likely return of Rodgers.
"It's been a long road from that day to this, but I'm happy to say I've been medically cleared to return", Rodgers wrote. Asked how much the bone has healed, he said, "I'm not going to get into that".
"I wouldn't be standing here ready to play if I wasn't confident I could go out there and play the way that I've always played", Rodgers said. The Packers averaged just 19.7 points per game without Rodgers.
"I think our football [team] has done an excellent job of finding different ways to win". The team was 5-6, and the only scenario in which a Rodgers return from IR made sense was the Packers being in playoff striking distance. Brett Hundley won three games in his absence, but none came against a team with a winning record. While the Eagles and Cowboys aren't very good this year, the Cowboys will have Ezekiel Elliot back from suspension and hopefully running with a huge chip on his shoulder and depending on what happens in the AFC the Raiders could be fighting for their playoff lives the last week of the season and thus will put up a pretty good fight.
"We've done it before", he said. "We're 7-6. We clearly understand what's on the line here". I saw something that we have 750-to-1 odds to make the playoffs. "We're not going to go to Carolina with a bunch of false confidence".
McCarthy seems fine with the decision and why not?
Still, to reach this stage of the season with a chance to make a playoff push behind Rodgers is an accomplishment. After all, it's going to take more than his return. Tyrod Taylor missed last weekend's blizzard game against the Indianapolis Colts with a knee injury, but he was a full participant in practice Wednesday. "There's a process that our medical staff puts every player that comes off of injury through".
Now we'll find out if the reward is worth the risk.
