Packers' Rodgers describes rehab setback

The SportsXchange

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to play this week, and he acknowledged experiencing a setback last week in his rehab.

Rodgers, out since breaking his collarbone in a Nov. 4 game against the Chicago Bears, felt pain while practicing with the team last Wednesday, he said Tuesday on WAUK-AM radio.

"I shouldn't be having pain doing some of the simple movements," Rodgers said. "It didn't get better as the week went on. I tried a lot on Wednesday; it didn't feel good. ...

"It's frustrating, very frustrating. I was trying to push it before science tells you before it's possible."

Rodgers acknowledged that he probably would miss Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, but he would not rule himself out for the remainder of the season.

"I'm going to practice tomorrow and try and do some of things I did last week without pain," Rodgers said Tuesday. "See how my body responds to it on Thursday and go from there."

The Packers were 5-2 when Rodgers got hurt early in the Chicago game. Green Bay lost that day, the start of a 1-4-1 run.

Matt Flynn is expected to start at quarterback for Green Bay again Sunday.
