Draft Scout *Aaron Rodgers News
12/31/18 - QB Aaron Rodgers was 3 of 5 for 26 yards passing before leaving Sunday's loss to the Lions with a concussion.
12/26/18 - QB Aaron Rodgers started and played every snap in last week's meaningless victory over the Jets. Presumably, he'll be back in the lineup for Sunday against Detroit.
However, his blind-side protector, two-time All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari, did not practice on Wednesday.
12/21/18 - QB Aaron Rodgers practiced all week despite knee and groin injuries, but the Packers did not list him on the injury report on Friday and said he will start against the New York Jets on Sunday.
There was speculation that the Packers (5-8-1), with nothing to play for but pride, might hold their franchise quarterback out of the last two games of the season.This is the first week Rodgers has not appeared on the Friday injury list since the opening week of the season.
12/19/18 - QB Aaron Rodgers (groin) practiced on Wednesday, but interim head coach Joe Philbin would not say if he will play Sunday against the New York Jets.
"I'm hopeful he's going to practice, and I'm hopeful he's going to play," Philbin said, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, who added that Rodgers was on the field for the open portion on practice on Wednesday and took the initial reps with the first-team offense. There has been some speculation in the media that since the Packers (5-8-1) have been eliminated from playoff contention, they might shut Rodgers down for the last two games of the season if he is not 100 percent healthy.
12/19/18 - QB Aaron Rodgers, who has been dealing with a knee injury all season and injured his groin in the first half of last week's loss at Chicago, is expected to be the starting quarterback against the Jets.
He plans to play even though Green Bay is eliminated from playoff consideration. Rodgers said, "I think it's a lot about leadership. If I want to be listened to and followed and looked up to, how could I stand here and say that these games that don't matter for playoffs, I'm going to cash it in? That's just not the way I lead, and I'm super competitive, and I want to be out there with the guys, and I look forward to being out there."
