Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is hoping to be back in the lineup before Thanksgiving.
“I would like to be back this week. Now, whether that’s realistic or not remains to be seen. I would never rule myself out on a Tuesday. Now, Mike probably already has, I think.”
Sounds like Rodgers is ready to get back on the field as soon as possible.
“I haven’t given up hope on playing any week. It depends on how I heal and depends on what the next x-ray looks like,” Rodgers said. “Obviously, this week is probably not going to happen — not going to happen. (pause) Probably not going to happen.”
Rodgers says he’s making progress.
“I’m doing everything I can to get back out there,” Rodgers said Tuesday. “We have our treatment routines. Again, it’s giving the bone time to heal and not trying to do anything too stupid to aggravate it. The collarbone obviously has an important role in your shoulder movement. Small victories to me have been being able to sleep through an entire night, which I finally can; being able to put a shirt over my head, which I can now; putting socks on. Yes, I can put them on without being in an extreme amount of pain.”
