Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said it is not certain quarterback Aaron Rodgers can play next week against the Atlanta Falcons.
Rodgers has another 10 days before the Packers play again on Dec. 8, but he is not fully recovered from his broken collarbone.
"I don't know that," McCarthy said Friday. "I just know when we came off the field Wednesday that he wasn't ready to play yet. So we'll see how the testing goes, but it needs to be the right thing. I know he wants to play. I know he's trying to gear up each and every week to play, but we'll see what happens next week."
The game against the Falcons will be 34 days from Rodgers' Nov. 4 injury. Doctors had said he would need six to eight weeks to be healed.
The Packers (5-6-1) are coming off an embarrassing 40-10 loss to the Detroit Lions on Thursday.
