GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers expects a decision to be made by Friday - or Saturday tops - whether he'll be cleared to return to face the Atlanta Falcons.
Rodgers has missed a month with a fractured left collarbone. He is back at practice on a limited basis, but doesn't want to speculate if he'll be medically cleared this week.
He also says it wouldn't be fair to Matt Flynn for the backup to wait until game time to determine whether he'll start. Rodgers says Wednesday he thinks the decision on his status would come the day or two before Sunday's game.
At least one man thinks Rodgers is a go: Falcons coach Mike Smith says he's preparing as if Rodgers is playing.
