Aaron Rodgers is eligible to return from injured reserve this week, and Green Bay Packers fans are downright giddy about the possibility of the star quarterback taking the reigns again just in time for the playoffs. At this point, there’s still a chance that won’t happen. Rodgers underwent a CT scan on Monday to determine how his fractured collarbone is healing, but there has been no announcement yet on whether he will return. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Packers are consulting with several experts to determine if it is a wise decision to have Rodgers play. Rodgers is said to be “pushing very hard to play,” but the team is concerned about the two-time MVP’s long-term health. Rodgers’ collarbone is not fully healed, and the Packers have known all along that it would not be by now. As Rapoport notes, an 80 percent healed collarbone would be considered good enough to play.
