Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is continuing to work his way back from a broken left collarbone and many were hoping that he would be able to return to the field this week for a crucial Week 15 match up against the Dallas Cowboys.
Rodgers has said that he wants to return this season, but there is a growing belief that he will not be able to suit up yet again and the Packers are becoming more “pessimistic” about his availability vs. the Cowboys.
From Ed Werder of ESPN:
Packers pessimistic about Aaron Rodgers being cleared for Dallas. Scheduled for practice today but source says playing inside 8 weeks risky

Green Bay still has a chance to make the postseason, but they will need to come up with a big win over Dallas if they want to keep realistic chances of making the playoffs.
Unfortunately, the Packers chances of winning against Dallas decrease greatly without Rodgers under center, so we will have to wait and see what the team officially decides to do as the week goes on.
