Week 17 decision on Rodgers to be made tomorrow

According to Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, injured Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had a scan done recently, with its results, and whether or not Rodgers will play this week, set to be announced tomorrow. Now this news can be seen many different ways, but I'll take it in a positive one: that Rodgers is getting better. 

Remember, McCarthy did say that #12's decision would be made earlier in the week, but now that's obviously not happening. So yea, I guess Rodgers could still miss this week, but I don't think it's guaranteed anymore. Which is obviously great news if you're a pro-winning type of guy.

While it might be only slightly, Thursday is sooner than Friday, which is when they announced it previously.

The scans were also sent to a couple others for review, which continues to mean its mostly a medical decision. However, even if cleared by a majority, if McKenzie doesn't agree it may not matter and even IF McKenzie clears Rodgers, Thompson may not want to expose his $120M investment.

No expectations any more, just waiting for the decision one way or the other.

The way I'm looking at this: Rodgers is getting better and may be healed, but Thompson just doesn't want to risk it, as you said. But since it's against the Bears in the division title game, he's having a real tough time deciding which he wants: a worthless division title or safety
