GREEN, BAY WISCONSIN – The Packers have ruled out Aaron Rodgers for Sunday’s game against the Steelers.
It will be Green Bay’s seventh straight game without Rodgers since the quarterback fractured his left collarbone Nov. 4.
Backup Matt Flynn will make a fourth straight start. Coach Mike McCarthy said that Rodgers hadn’t received medical clearance.
“Just as I’ve stated all along. We’ve got two different circumstances here. We’ve got Aaron Rodgers’ health, and obviously where we are as a football team,” McCarthy said. “Until we feel good about where Aaron is medically, that will not be part of the second circumstance. So as an organization, we are not ready for him to play.”
