Report: Packers hopeful Aaron Rodgers will play Thanksgiving

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports via Rotoworld, the Packers are “holding out hope” Aaron Rodgers will be able to play against the Lions in Thanksgiving.

The Packers’ medical staff and doctors will reevaluate Rodgers Monday to see where his fractured collarbone is at. Given the short week, owners shouldn’t be overly optimistic. Rodgers previously said that he would have to practice on Tuesday in order to suit up, so we’ll know his status nice and early. A Week 13 return should be considered a bonus. Fractured bones typically take 4-6 weeks to heal, and Rodgers has only been out three weeks so far.

The Packers need Rodgers back as soon as possible.  Their playoff hopes are only slipping away with each loss.
