Aaron Rodgers is done for the season.
Being mathematically out of the playoff hunt, the Green Bay Packers placed Rodgers on injured reserve.
Monday, coach Mike McCarthy left the door open at the possibility the 34-year-old quarterback would play this week.
“Aaron Rodgers is sore, rightfully so,” McCarthy said Monday when asked whether Rodgers would play against Minnesota. “He was hit too many times, took two big hits. So we’re working through that. So we’ll see what tomorrow brings.”
Ironically, it was against Minnesota on Oct. 15 that Rodgers broke his right collarbone.
He threw three interceptions in the loss to the Carolina Panthers. He threw three interceptions in his other six games this season.
Atlanta’s win against Tampa Bay on Monday night ended Green Bay’s eight-year run of consecutive postseason berths.
Saturday at Lambeau Field, Brett Hundley will get the start against the Vikings. Joe Callahan was signed as his backup.
