The Green Bay Packers were hoping to have quarterback Aaron Rodgers back in the line up on Sunday when they face the Pittsburgh Steelers as they prepare for their final playoff push, but there appears to be some growing doubt that Rodgers will be available.
In fact, it appears that there is plenty of pessimism surrounding Rodgers’ status and it would take a big change in the next few days in order for Rodgers to be cleared.
From Adam Schefter of ESPN:
Packers not expecting Aaron Rodgers to play Sunday vs Steelers unless, as one source said, “something significantly changes with doctor.”

The Packers chances at making the playoffs improve greatly if Rodgers is in the line up, but they will have to find a way to get another win with Matt Flynn running the show.
Pittsburgh has been playing tough in recent weeks, so Flynn and the Packers could be up for a tough challenge with their season on the line.
