07:48 AM ET 12.18 | Aaron Rodgers is listed as doubtful on the Green Bay Packers' official injury report. But Rodgers' playfulness Friday afternoon and one statement by his coach could be viewed as encouraging signs for Packer Nation. Rodgers left last week's game against Detroit with his second concussion of the season and didn't practice at all this week. But Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers is "progressing" and he could wait to make a decision on his playing status until shortly before Green Bay meets New England on Sunday night. Earlier this week, McCarthy said he'd make a decision by Saturday. "The door is open for Aaron Rodgers to play in the game," McCarthy said.

Be careful, Aaron. Another bonk on the head could have some serious effects.

I knew a guy who had a really bad head injury. After the fall, he really had a much better sense of humor too. Coincidence?

I knew he'd play. There using the old Viking fake injury trick.

Yeah - and the mods are quick to address it this morning.

I reported all of it a couple of hours ago - they must be "busy"...

GB +11 with Pats coming to town? If Rogers plays (and has his brains not scrambled) that is money. Take the Pack and 11!!!
