    Highly unlikely. A safety making a tackle would be far more likely to incur such an injury next week than Rodgers would playing QB. MM said it was an "organizational decision" last week, not a medical one.

    If there is a chance, even just a little chance, that his herniated disk could hurt his spinal cord, Romo would be stupid to play.

    This subject has been done to death.
    Why bother starting yet another thread about Rodgers injury and questioning his toughness and thinking that he can just rub some dirt on it, walk it off and go back and play?
    We already have like 678 threads on this already. Why not put this into one of those instead?

    I'm trying to contain excitement in case he's still shut down. 45 minutes until McCarthy speaks.

    yeah, usually "Sources Say" means that someone's guessing.

    I would say him taking nearly all reps with first team is a pretty strong indicator.

    There weren't any team drills though during the part that was open for the media.

    Yes he will be. The real question is to what extent

    McCarthy: He's playing.

    Will he be rusty? Probably. But a rusty Aaron Rodgers is better than a well-oiled Matt Flynn.

    Somehow I expect him to be surprisingly crisp. With this news it's time to have a drink at work, that bottle of Glenfiddich isn't going to drink itself.

    We beat the Bears and win at home in the WC game, that should be enough to save TT's job.

    If TT was available even Jerry Jones would fire his GM and hire Ted.

    Yes, because Jerry Jones is known for his good moves.

    What a great PR move that would be.
    "Hi, as of today, I will no longer meddle with my team. I will let my coaches coach and Ted Thompson will be my GM with 100% authority. "

    Dallas would be able to double the price of the already highest in the NFL.

    That cap situation might be close to as bad as Oaklands

    All TT would have to do is cut his entire starting Oline. It worked here.:)

    I wouldn't go that far, but he'd find a new job in a week tops.

    That's right. That's why it's idiotic to suggest Thompson's job is in jeopardy. His job is secure even if they lose to the Bears. Even if they win Sunday and lose at home in the playoffs. Such nonsense only exists in the biased mind of Favre-fans.
