GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers still don’t know the status of Aaron Rodgers for this weekend as they try to win the NFC North.
The Packers quarterback hasn’t received medical clearance to play in Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh, although he looked fine during Thursday’s practice. Rodgers has missed the Packers’ last six games with a broken collarbone, and coach Mike McCarthy said the team will hold medical meetings on Friday before determining if Rodgers can start Sunday.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Packers aren’t expecting Rodgers to start unless “something significantly changes with the doctor”.

Matt Flynn took the majority of the reps on Thursday.
On defense, the Packers have ruled out lineman Johnny Jolly with shoulder and neck injuries that McCarthy said were significant.
