Packers officially rule out QB Aaron Rodgers for Week 16
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy announced Friday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers 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.
Well, I guess the good news here is fantasy owners don't need to answer the difficult question of whether they should start Rodgers in their championship game after he missed six games. That's been answered for you. For thoughts on how owners should approach the Packers' offense this week, click here and click here.
