The Packers have placed QB Aaron Rodgers on IR, ending his season. HC Mike McCarthy said the QB was sore coming out of Sunday's return at Carolina, and then Atlanta's Monday night victory eliminated Green Bay from playoff contention. So Brett Hundley should start Saturday night against the Vikings and then at Detroit in Week 17. Hundley means an upgrade for both opponent defenses in fantasy.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy was non-commital on QB Aaron Rodgers' Week 16 status. "Rodgers is sore, and rightfully so," McCarthy said Monday. "He was hit too many times. Took two big hits. We're working through that and we'll see what tomorrow brings." Green Bay would be eliminated from the playoff picture if the Falcons beat the Bucs on Monday night -- and have no reason to play Rodgers against the Vikings on Saturday at less than 100%. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) announced on Tuesday night that he's been medically cleared. That presumably means he'll start this weekend's game against the Panthers. Rodgers has been practicing for a couple of weeks now and been impressing teammates and media members. The last time he returned from a broken collarbone -- albeit on his non-throwing side -- he went for 318 yards with 2 TDs and 2 INTs against the Bears in his 1st game back. He comes with a bit lower floor than usual this week, but Rodgers sits safely inside QB1 territory in our rankings. His return is also a big boost to WR Jordy Nelson.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers impressed both beat writers and teammates on Wednesday in his 1st official practice since breaking his collarbone. "He looks like himself," WR Jordy Nelson said. Rodgers still needs to get full medical clearance, but he continues to trend toward returning for next weekend's game against the Panthers.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is expected to practice when he's 1st eligible on Saturday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This doesn't yet guarantee that Rodgers will play again this season, though. Rapoport notes that Green Bay will need to still be in the playoff race to bring Rodgers back, which would likely require wins the next 2 weeks vs. Tampa Bay and Cleveland. Rodgers' collarbone will also need to be healed enough to get the green light from what Rapoport calls the Packers' "notoriously conservative doctors." We'll continue to track Rodgers' progress. He's 1st eligible to play Week 15.

Injury Predictor

The 2nd clavicle fracture of his career last season doubled Rodgers' games missed as a starter. He sat out 9 contests, including the final 2 after he returned to face the Panthers in Week 15. Rodgers played all 16 games in 3 straight campaigns before that. Outside of 2017 and 2013 (his previous collarbone fracture), Rodgers has lost just 1 other game to injury since becoming the starter in 2008.
