Report: Aaron Rodgers passes tests
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he has passed all concussion-related tests and has been cleared to return by both team physician Dr. John Gray and an independent neurologist, ESPNMilwaukee.com reported Tuesday.
ESPNMilwaukee.com reported Rodgers sent a text message Tuesday saying he was ready to return after sitting out the Packers' loss to the Patriots on Sunday night.
Rodgers suffered his second concussion of the season on a scramble at the end of the second quarter of the Packers' Dec. 12 loss in Detroit.
Matt Flynn played well in Rodgers' stead and nearly led the Packers to a win over New England on Sunday. However, the Packers (8-6) have lost two straight since Rodgers' concussion and face a must-win against the New York Giants (9-5) on Sunday in order to remain in the race for a wild-card berth.
