Green Bay Packers to make quarterback announcement

Published Add your comment

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could be fit to face Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, according to reports.

The 30-year-old, who has been out of action since early November with a broken collarbone, remains a doubt - but Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed earlier this week that the team's first-choice QB has impressed in practise.

"He looks sharp, he definitely looks better this week," McCarthy told reporters. "He looks like he's ready to play.

"You wanted an update, you wanted to know how he looks, he looks good.

"He's a limited practice participant. He hasn't been medically cleared."

Packers' back-up quarterback Matt Flynn took most of the first-team reps on Thursday, according to reports, and will start if Rodgers is not declared fit to play.

Green Bay's hopes of making a play-off place rest on their final two fixtures; however, they have their fate on their own hands following back-to-back victories over Atlanta Falcons and Dallas Cowboys.

Packers will make the play-offs once again if secure wins from the fixtures over Steelers and Chicago Bears.
