Aaron Rodgers' chances to play Thursday are 'slim to none'

The Green Bay Packers are trying to get through this stretch of games while quarterback Aaron Rodgers is out with an injury.  In the mean time they’ve played Seneca Wallace, Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn at quarterback. Head coach Mike McCarthy won’t say who is starting on Thanksgiving, but he basically eliminated the possibility of Rodgers returning.

“Had a meeting with Aaron. He would like to go,” McCarthy said Monday, via NFL.com. “Frankly, based on the information, where we are as far as the conversation with Aaron, the conversation with the medical staff, I will say he’s slim to none.

“Let’s be honest, he’s got to practice. He has to — there’s some physical rehab hurdles he had to get through (that) he hasn’t reached yet … like I said, it would be a huge stretch for him to play in this game.”

Scott Tolzien struggled Sunday and was replaced by Matt Flynn. You’d think he’d stick with that decision going forward, but he isn’t going to tip his hand before the game.
