Despite training with the second team offense yesterday, Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers still hasn't been cleared for a return to action this Sunday, reports CBSSports. 

The quarterback, who has been sidelined since the beginning of November with a collarbone injury, is desperate to play in the Packers' crucial match with the Pittsburgh
Steelers at the Lambeau Field this weekend. 

However, Rodgers could still miss the match with the Packers needing to secure a victory as they go in search of the playoffs. 

Since Rodgers' absence from the team, the Packers have won just two matches so will be hoping for their star quarterback to return. 

However, those two victories have come in their last two matches and they will now be hoping to take that form into their final clashes, but whether they will have Rodgers in their team is not yet known. 

On the possibility of Rodgers playing this weekend, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said: "He's doing better.

"He's still not been cleared by the medical staff. He threw the ball extremely well. He looked sharp. He's getting better.

“We're going to take a similar process to last week.”

If Rodgers doesn't make this weekend's match, then Matt Flynn may well get another opportunity to star for the Packers.
