Packers Not Ruling Out Aaron Rodgers For The Year

This article first appeared on

Updating a previous report, the Green Bay Packers are holding out hope that quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), who was placed on the Injured Reserve on Friday, can return Dec. 17 against the Panthers, according to a source. However, it may be a long shot. That would be Week 15, or the fantasy semifinals. It really would be a long shot, but not out of the realm of possibilities. Fantasy owners shouldn’t be quite as optimistic, and you shouldn’t feel forced to hang onto him, especially in shallower leagues. Brett Hundley is taking over starting duties. He is a high-risk, high-reward second quarterback. The Packers should be expected to lean more heavily on the ground game in the absence of Rodgers, which favors rookie Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery.
