Aaron Rodgers said he could return this season 'if it makes sense'

Lions-Packers Capsule

"And obviously I have a lot of down time now, a lot of rabbit holes I can go down as far as healing and alternative ways of increasing that time that are obviously natural, legal and safe". Speaking up for the first time since the injury occurred, Rodgers shared this update on a potential return to the field.

Rodgers, who has been placed on injured reserve with a designation to return, is eligible to play Week 15 in Carolina. But, dates and timelines do not prevail over the fact that Rodgers collarbone must heal. If it is healed, then there is a conversation and we will go from there. If the Packers fall out of playoff contention without Rodgers, there's no use in rushing him back.

The Packers are 4-3 and next host Detroit on Monday night. But they've got games against the Lions, Bears, Ravens, Steelers, Buccaneers, and Browns to get through until the Week 15 target that Demovsky identified. With the Vikings having a 2.5-game lead and a bye this week, it's a big mountain for the Packers to climb without Rodgers.

But if they are in it and the bone is healed, he'll be back.

"I want to be healthy; that's the most important thing", Rodgers said.

Rodgers was asked again about Barr's hit, which his head coach called "dirty".

"It's healing. I'm on the IR so it's at least eight weeks and at that point it's has the bone healed properly or not and we'll make a decision when we get there", he said.

Barr was not penalized or fined for the hit. Nelson said the difference this time around is that Brett Hundley has been with the team and in the system for three years as Rodgers' backup. "You know that you don't have the same protection outside the pocket". "A simple shove-down probably would have sufficed in that situation, but it is what it is".
