After missing two consecutive starts and most of a third game with a broken collarbone, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers discussed his potential for return on a Monday appearance on "Packers Live" with Larry McCarren, airing on NBC 26 in Green Bay. “I’m going to be back when I’m ready, when there’s a very low risk of re-injuring that,” Rodgers is quoted as saying by Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “Obviously if you have another blow like I had, displacement of the collarbone could be three to five months of rehab. That’s not what we want. At the same time, we’re 5-5 and might need a little jolt here at some point.” With head coach Mike McCarthy already naming Scott Tolzien the starter for the upcoming Vikings game, it would appear the best-case scenario would be for Rodgers to return in time for the big Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Detroit Lions.
Defensive miscues in the loss to the Giants are explained by coordinator Dom Capers. “I liked all the things we did in the game except the way we played the switch route,” Capers is quoted as saying by Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. “And three of their big plays came off of that.” Safeties Morgan Burnett, M.D. Jennings and cornerback Micah Hyde were all victimized by lapses in coverage while guarding receivers running switch routes on Sunday.
