Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that he'll need to get in at least one day of practice before he's able to play in a game again, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN. Rodgers is recovering from a broken collarbbone sustained in a game against the Chicago Bears on Nov. 4.
Rodgers said that he would need to be "on the field two days before the game," and mentions he'd have to be on the field Tuesday of next week if he were to play in the team's Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions.
He's expected to miss this week's game against the Minnesota Vikings, but the Week 13 game is right n the cusp of his potential return. It's anybody's guess as to whether or not he'll be ready then, either way,
Fantasy Impact: Rodgers isn't quite like every other quarterback in the league. It's hard to imagine him feeling healthy an not playing due to a lack of practice two days prior, especially if the Packers lose a fourth consecutive game when they play the Vikings. That said, the words are straight from Rodgers and we at least have something to watch out for.
