Rodgers injures shoulder on MNF; McCarthy says team will run more tests
The doc or trainer who took Rodgers back has returned to the sideline. Rodgers hasn't. McCarthy received an update. Didn't seem thrilled. — Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) November 5, 2013If Rodgers is to miss any extended amount of time, the team will likely go looking for another QB. The team certainly ran well against the Bears, getting nearly 200 yards on the ground. But even facing Josh McCown in the place of injured Bears starting QB Jay Cutler, Green Bay was lost without Rodgers on Monday Night. Wallace is currently the only QB other than Rodgers on the active roster, and McCarthy made it a point at the news conference to talk about the importance of Wallace getting practice time with the first unit should Rodgers be out. Coincidentally, just last week the team reportedly gave practice squad QB Scott Tolzien a sizable raise to remain on the practice squad and not get picked up by another team looking for QB help. But that's it — for now. And in another bit of odd timing, one-time Rodgers backup Matt Flynn was cut by the Bills on Monday. Flynn made himself a lot of money with a brief-but-successful run as Rodgers backup in 2011, but has struggled to even see playing time in Seattle, Oakland and Buffalo. After the Monday night game, McCarthy was even asked about the potential of Flynn being brought back should Rogers be out for a prolonged period of time, but would only say he is focusing on Wallace for the time being. The Packers host the Eagles next Sunday.
