Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers has admitted that he expected to be given the all clear to play when he received the results from his X-ray on Tuesday, reports cbssports. 

The quarterback hasn't featured for the Packers since injuring his collarbone against the Chicago Bears on November 4. 

And, with the Packers set to take on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Rodgers had hoped to be passed fit for the match. 

Rodgers has admitted that he was disappointed after hearing the results and knows that he will have to wait before finding out his fate. 

Speaking in a weekly radio show with ESPN Wisconsin, Rodgers said: "I can't say [Tuesday] morning was the greatest news. I was expecting full clearance. We didn't get that."

The Packers have been in terrible form since Rodgers' absence and have lost four of their last five matches. 

Rodgers is well aware that there's a rush to get him back into action, however the 30-year-old will only play when he is ready. 

He continued by saying: "When I'm ready to play and everyone is on board, then I'm going to play. I know there's a rush to get back out there. I feel it internally, but also externally. I desperately want to be out there, but it has to look good."

With or without Rodgers, the Packers will be desperate to get back to winning ways on Sunday.
