07:34 AM ET 12.11 | The practice field is one thing, but Aaron Rodgers doesn't seem to be heading back for an NFL start. [Rodgers'] chances of playing again this season are diminishing by the week. The Green Bay Packers' quarterback said on his radio show on ESPNMilwaukee on Tuesday that he wasn't close to being cleared to play last week from a broken collarbone he sustained Nov. 4. Rodgers gave no indication he's given up on playing this season, but it's looking like his odds for playing in Sunday's game at Dallas are low. Rodgers in fact suggested that from the start he knew his injury probably would take an extended period to heal. A team doctor for another NFL team similarly told Press-Gazette Media in late November that he likes to give mild cracks in the collarbone, which reportedly is Rodgers' injury, at least eight weeks to heal before clearing a player.

Come on! You know the Cowboys will choke on any chance they may have.

Having a million facelifts will result in creaking sounds when smiling.

I think Matt Flynn is going to have his second career game.

Thanks for taking my fantasy season down with you, ARod.

He will be back in time to beat the Steelers.

He could also be moulting like a snake.

I am not a big Romo fan but clearly he has not been the problem. You can't pin anything on him for how the season has gone. It's the DEFENSE..if you want to call it that. It's historically terrible.

Unless bringing Rodgers back will also magically fix the Packers D, they shouldn't worry about it.

C'mon now, Mel. McCown and the O was the perfect fix for that woeful Bears D on Monday night. Scoring at will helped a lot. No matter what happens Bears had better get busy and draft a stud MLB in 2014.

Guess that backup QB isn't working out for you?

It all comes down to this weekend. If Rodgers can't play, and the Packers lose, then they'll be effectively out of it, at which point they might as well put him on IR and ride out the season.

Yes they scored at will....but......there was nothing there to slow them down either.
