Decision on Rodgers to come after practice

By Rob Demovsky

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers must want to take one last look at quarterback Aaron Rodgers before deciding whether he will return from his broken collarbone to play Sunday at the Chicago Bears.

After taking Wednesday off for Christmas, the Packers will hold their first practice of the week on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. local time

“Aaron’s really done everything he can possibly do,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said during his weekly segment on SiriusXM NFL Radio Thursday morning. “Really with Christmas falling the way it did, we weren’t able to get all the information and conversation done in time to make a decision on Tuesday, so we’re going to make a call today after practice.”

McCarthy is scheduled to meet with reporters after practice.

Rodgers has not played since he broke his left collarbone on Nov. 4 in the first meeting with the Bears. Sunday's game is for the NFC North title. The winner goes to the playoffs, while the loser's season is over.
