McCarthy not sure if Rodgers will start finale

Posted: Updated:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy isn't sure if quarterback Aaron Rodgers will start the team's winner-take-all NFC North matchup with the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Soldier Field.

McCarthy did say Monday that the team wants to make a decision on Rodgers' availability "sooner than later."

Rodgers, who has not played since fracturing his left collarbone against the Bears at Lambeau Field on Nov. 4, has missed the past seven games.

Including the loss to the Bears when Rodgers was injured at the end of the Packers' opening series, the Packers have gone 2-5-1 with three different starters at quarterback.

Throughout the process, the team has emphasized that Rodgers has not been "medically cleared" by team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie.
