Doctors have reportedly informed the Green Bay Packers that quarterback Aaron Rodgers may be able to throw in six weeks, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. That would give him a return date sometime in December.
Rodgers is recovering from a broken right clavicle suffered in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings.
The Packers placed Rodgers on injured reserve, meaning the earliest he can return is Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers on Dec. 17.
“We’re actually discussing all the long-term options at this point,” head coach Mike McCarthy said, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. “The focus has been on Aaron’s health, making sure everything went well with the surgery, and those discussions will continue.”
