Aaron Rodgers will go through the NFL's normal protocol for players that have suffered a concussion. Coach Mike McCarthy said at his press conference today he wouldn't have an update on Rodgers' status until later in the week. The fact that Rodgers suffered a concussion two months ago in a game against Washington doesn't change the way he is being treated now, according to McCarthy. He said the team would take no chances with Rodgers. McCarthy said practice squad quarterback Graham Harrell is a "viable option" to be brought up to the 53-man roster to serve as a backup behind Matt Flynn. In other injury news, McCarthy said guard Daryn Colledege suffered a knee sprain but has a chance to be back this week. Linebacker Frank Zombo also suffered a knee sprain and will be challenged to play against New England on Sunday. Other things McCarthy said at his presser: *Defensive end Cullen Jenkins will be out next week and probably the week after that with a calf injury that kept him from playing against the Lions. *His quarterbacks are coached to slide and shouldn’t be taking unnecessary hits, as Rodgers and Matt Flynn did against the Lions. He said they are also football players, meaning their competitiveness perhaps got the best of them. *Flynn missed some throws, which is his biggest criticism. He also did some good things. He said the team didn’t help him as far as the run game goes. *It was not a good day offensively against the Lions, and the team will spend time together looking at the film. He said it was a poor performance and it starts with him. He gave credit to the Lions, who played a lot of base defense. McCarthy said it was our guys vs. their guys and the Packers did not perform.
