National Football League notebook: Teams question Rodgers' status with Packers

Share

But one source said Rodgers wasn't going to be medically cleared to play in Green Bay's next game, and the Packers knew he wasn't 100 percent.

Minnesota will close the regular season against the visiting Chicago Bears at U.S. Bank Stadium on New Year's Eve and could then have a bye before hosting an NFC divisional playoff game. I wouldn't be shocked if the better team steamrolls, but I like the value of the Packers and the points.

The Vikings' quarterback finished with one of his weakest statistical games going 14-for-25 with 139 yards and one touchdown. If the player misses less than six weeks, the team is obligated to cut him once he is deemed healthy. The Vikings are just a Philadelphia Eagles loss away from gaining homefield throughout the postseason. The rust was apparent with three interceptions along with three touchdowns in the 31-24 loss to the Panthers and two days later, McCarthy shut down Rodgers for the season. Minnesota moves 68 yards on five plays and scores on a 4-yard pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs.

Keenum has played great, but the Vikings are a threat to win the Super Bowl due to their stellar defense.

The Packers play the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

According to Green Bay, Wis. police chief Andrew Smith, the suspect is a disgruntled former employee. But believe it or not, the Rams still have a chance at earning a first-round bye, although they would need a lot of help from the Minnesota Vikings. Baltimore began week 16 as the seventh seed in the AFC, but the teams in front of them have hard final games.

Deadly winter storm coats the Deep South in ice, causes travel chaos
Winter storm warnings were also in effect for portions of the Carolinas, southern Virginia and the New England area. More than 1,700 flights have been cancelled and tens of thousands of homes and businesses have lost power.

Quarterback Brett Hundley, making his eighth start of the season, did nothing to change the narrative that he isn't capable of taking over a game. Spriggs is actually the Packers' backup right tackle, playing in place of Bryan Bulaga, who's on IR because of a knee injury.

It isn't that Williams hasn't done some good things. Jordy Nelson, who was in for Adams, would eventually get pulled in the second quarter after suffering a shoulder injury that would keep him out for the remainder of the match.

The Green Bay Packers may have violated National Football League rules by placing Aaron Rodgers on injured reserve a second time this season, and other teams reportedly think the star quarterback should be released as a result.
