Following up on NFL Network's Ian Rapoport's story this morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers are "close" to working on a deal that would bring Rodgers back to Green Bay for the 2021 season. Per Schefter, the agreement would void the 2023 year in Rodgers' contract and ensure that the team reviews Rodgers' situation after this year. It essentially sounds like this would be his final season with the Packers. We'll continue to track this situation, but Rodgers and Green Bay's skill-position players look much safer to draft now than they did 12 hours ago.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (rib, thumb) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's expected to play vs. the Bears this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.
Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Wednesday that he expects QB Aaron Rodgers (rib, thumb) to play vs. the Bears this weekend. Rodgers said Tuesday that he expects to be out there ... so we're expecting him to be out there. The injuries will add some risk to his Week 13 fantasy profile, but Rodgers will certainly carry QB1 upside against a Chicago defense that can't stop anything.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (rib, thumb) did not practice on Wednesday. Rodgers has been sitting out Wednesdays since suffering that thumb injury, so this doesn't tell us much about his status for this weekend's game vs. the Bears. Rodgers said Tuesday that he plans on playing in that one. We'll see if he practices on Thursday.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said on the Pat McAfree Show on Tuesday that he got "good news" with the scans on his ribs and plans on playing vs. the Bears this weekend. "I might miss practice Wednesday but that's been the standard for the last six, seven weeks [and] go to one of my favorite places to play, Chicago, get a big win, get into the bye week and get healthy," Rodgers added. We'll keep you updated on his practice participation throughout the week.
Packers HC Matt LaFleur didn't have an update on QB Aaron Rodgers' injury during his Monday press conference but did say that Rodgers was "feeling better" than he did on Sunday night. "I think we’ll know more in the next couple days," LaFleur added. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Rodgers will start vs. the Bears this weekend if he's able.
