Packers officially rule out QB Aaron Rodgers for Week 16

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy announced Friday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 will not play Sunday versus the Steelers. McCarthy said Rodgers still hasn't been medically cleared to play after fracturing his left collarbone on Nov. 4. Matt Flynn will make his fourth consecutive start. McCarthy didn't speculate on whether Rodgers will be able to play in Week 17.

That's been answered for you. For thoughts on how owners should approach the Packers' offense this week, click here and click here.
