Plans to play versus Chicago
Rodgers (ribs) said Tuesday during an appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show" that he was encouraged by the results of the scans he underwent Monday and plans to play in Week 13 against Chicago, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
The veteran quarterback suffered a rib injury during last Sunday's loss to Philadelphia, which forced Jordan Love into his first game action of the season. However, Rodgers was cleared of a punctured lung soon after exiting the contest, and his optimistic outlook about his health likely implies that he avoided any major structural damage to his ribs. He added that he may sit out the first practice of Week 13 prep, but that shouldn't be overly concerning, as he's missed Wednesday sessions for nearly two months straight while nursing an avulsion fracture to his right thumb. Love will stay prepared to start in the event Rodgers' condition takes a turn for the worse as the weekend approaches.
