The Packers waited until the last possible day to open offensive lineman J.C. Tretter's three-week window to practice while on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, and now it's coming down to the final day to determine his fate.
By Tuesday afternoon, the Packers must either activate Tretter to the 53-man roster, release him or place him on season-ending injured reserve.
Releasing the rookie isn't likely, so it will come down to one of the other two options.
Seeing as he's coming off a broken ankle suffered this past May, the guess here is that he's probably not ready to play with just three games remaining in the regular season.
But if he were activated, the Packers would have to clear space on the roster either by cutting a player or placing one on injured reserve.
Unless it's a foregone conclusion that a player like C.J. Wilson (ankle) or Jamari Lattimore (knee) has no chance of returning this season, Tretter will probably be the one placed on I.R.
Also on Tuesday, Rodgers will be put through a workout before being examined by team doctor Pat McKenzie before practice on Wednesday. Whether Rodgers will be able to play on Sunday against the Cowboys has yet to be determined.
Rodgers is likely to give an update Tuesday afternoon on his weekly radio show "Tuesdays with Aaron," aired on the ESPN Radio affiliate in Milwaukee, 540 AM at 1:30 p.m. CT and streamed live online at ESPNWisconsin.com. It will be replayed on 100.5 FM in Madison at 5:00 p.m.
Safety Morgan Burnett will be the guest on the Mike McCarthy Show that airs on several television markets in Wisconsin and the Midwest on Tuesday evening, according to host Lance Allan on Twitter.
The Mike McCarthy Show airs at 6:30 p.m. CT on WGBA Ch. 26 in Green Bay and WTMJ Ch. 4 in Milwaukee. Complete listings can be found on the team's official website.
Offensive lineman T.J. Lang hosts Tundra Talk on 105.7 FM WAPL in Appleton at 5:00 p.m. and streamed online at WAPL.com.
On Tuesday evening, a trio of Packers will do a public autograph signing at Waukesha Sportscards in Waukesha, Wis. Linebacker A.J. Hawk, offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith and cornerback Davon House will appear from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
The charge for Hawk is $39, while just $20 for Dietrich-Smith or House. A special of $55 is being offered for all three players.
