The Green Bay Packers are still deciding what to do with Aaron Rodgers after the star quarterback broke his collarbone in a Week 6 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Per ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy made it sound like the team is considering placing Rodgers on injured reserve. "I think it will be clear when the discussion is completed, and we'll make that decision," McCarthy said. "That's what the conversations are for today." If the Packers do place Rodgers on injured reserve, he would be eligible to return after eight weeks, making him possibly available in Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals. McCarthy also noted the Packers were talking about all of their "long-term options" for Rodgers. "The focus has been on Aaron's health, making sure everything went well with the surgery and those discussions will continue," he said. Rodgers was injured in the first quarter against the Vikings when Anthony Barr landed on him while going for a sack as Green Bay's quarterback was rolling to his right. He was carted to the locker room and diagnosed with a broken right collarbone.
