Aaron Rodgers says he has seen positives in his injury recovery but admitted he could not put a date on his return to the field for the Green Bay Packers.
Speaking on his ESPN Wisconsin radio show, Rodgers said he was pleased he has been able to do things like sleep through a whole night and dress without debilitating pain since breaking his collarbone little over a week ago.
The 2011 NFL and Superbowl MVP suffered the injury after being sacked by Chicago Bears defensive end Shea McClellin during the Packers' defeat in NFL week nine.
Despite admitting he would not be lining up for the clash with the Giants this coming Sunday, Rodgers would not say anymore about possible recovery timeframes.
"I haven't given up hope on playing any week. It depends on how I heal," he said.
"Obviously this week is probably not going to happen. Not going to happen."
The entire Green Bay staff and fans held their breath at what looked an extremely serious injury, but the initial diagnosis of a cracked collarbone and estimated recovery time of three weeks felt like a let off.
