Packers Injury Report: QB Aaron Rodgers Ruled Out On Friday

When the Pittsburgh Steelers face off Sunday against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, quarterback Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) will be a spectator as it was announced on Friday that he has been ruled out for the game.

Despite him practicing again this week on a limited basis, the Packers organization has decided not to clear him medically to play. That means Matt Flynn will again start at quarterback and he will be backed up by Scott Tolzien.

The Packers also have ruled out defensive end Johnny Jolly (shoulder, neck) and tight end Brandon Bostick (foot) for the Sunday game as well.

With him being limited this week in practice, defensive end C.J. Wilson (ankle) ends the week as questionable.  Ending the week listed as probable are linebacker Brad Jones (ankle), running back Eddie Lacy (ankle), defensive end Mike Neal (abdomen) and linebacker Nick Perry (foot).

    The Steelers run blocking has not been very good. Running the ball down anyone’s throat may be a difficult task. I’ll settle for whatever works as long as they win.

    I’d like to see Bell get a couple 100 yd games to finish the season to build momentum for next year. This will be hard with the state of our Oline, though.
