GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers held a light walk through practice on Christmas Eve, as they get ready to play the Bears in Chicago on Sunday for the NFC North Division title.
The players are off for the holiday, and practice resumes Thursday.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on his weekly ESPN Milwaukee radio show that he hopes to be taking snaps with the Number One offense, like he's done for part of the last two weeks. He said a decision would be announced Thursday on whether he'll play against the Bears.
It's been 51 days since Rodgers broke his left collarbone, and he had another medical scan Tuesday. The results are pending.
Fullback John Kuhn said the team would be ready for anything. Receiver James Jones said he thinks we'll get, "good news."
Rodgers said he's frustrated that the injury hasn't healed faster -- but all he can do is wait for the bone to heal, and for the team doctor to clear him.
Rodgers defended the way the Packers have handled and discussed his injury -- and he says the criticisms of team physician Patrick McKenzie, general manager Ted Thompson, and coach Mike McCarthy are unwarranted.
