Rodgers still on rest and recovery, unlikely to play

Aaron Rodgers didn't practice or attend meetings for the second straight while recovering from a concussion that is likely to sideline him Sunday against the New England Patriots. Rodgers remained on rest and recovery protocol Thursday, which means he will not practice this week. Before being cleared for practice, he has to be cleared for a cardiovascular workout and then show no symptoms from his concussion the next day. He was not cleared for that cardio workout Thursday, so the earliest he could it is Friday, and Friday is the last full practice of the week. Coach Mike McCarthy said he will decide Saturday his quarterback's status against New England, though there's little reason to think Rodgers will play if he isn't able to prove he can practice and remain asymptomatic.  " I think it will be clear by the time we travel to New England (on Saturday afternoon) what we're going to do as far as Aaron Rodgers is concerned," McCarthy said. "I don't want to take this to the game. It's not going to be a game-time decision."
