07:23 AM ET 11.13 | If it were up to Aaron Rodgers, he'd be starting this Sunday's game against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium -- even though coach Mike McCarthy has already said Scott Tolzien will start. Speaking on his weekly radio show on 540 ESPN and ESPNWisconsin.com, Rodgers acknowledged that he has a game in mind for his return. Asked if it was the team's Nov. 28 Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit, Rodgers replied, "I would like to be back this week. Now, whether that's realistic or not remains to be seen. I would never rule myself out on a Tuesday. Now, Mike probably already has, I think." ... Without explicitly saying so, though, Rodgers hinted that his goal is to play Nov. 24 against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field -- which would be 20 days from the injury. "I haven't given up hope on playing any week."

Wherever Sanchez has the opportunity to play, there's always the hope for another Buttfumble.
