Aaron Rodgers struggling to recover from injury

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still no closer to returning from a broken collarbone, which has kept him out of action since early November.

The 30-year-old, who returned to limited practice last week, confirmed that a scan on his collarbone revealed no further healing.

Rodgers was quoted by ESPN Milwaukee as saying that he would need to see "different results" in order to return this week – and it now seems likely that he will spend even longer on the sidelines.

"I shouldn't be having pain doing simple movements," Rodgers said. "Doing quick movements or giving a handoff with left hand, those are things that gave me some discomfort. That was a clue."

The Green Bay star admits that it's difficult to watch his teammates playing without him – but accepts that it takes time to return from such a serious injury.

"You don't see people coming back in four or five weeks from this injury," he added. "It was tough not to be out there."

Green Bay have struggled without Rodgers, who sustained his injury against the Chicago Bears in Week 8, although they managed to secure a vital 21-20 victory over Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Matt Flynn deputised for Rodgers in his absence – and the 28-year-old is expected to retain his starting place against the Dallas Cowboys this weekend.
