We will know by Thursday if Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will play in Week 17

Here we go yet again.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 said during a Tuesday radio interview that his playing status for Week 17 versus the Bears "will be definitive one way or another" by Thursday. Rodgers has missed the last seven games due to a fractured left collarbone.

Fantasy Analysis:

Rodgers also said during the interview that he is feeling better every week but also that his collarbone "hasn't healed the way we wanted it to." If I had to guess, I'd say that he doesn't play in this weekend's de facto playoff game against Chicago. If Rodgers plays, well, that's a fantasy lineup conversation for another time. Let's see where he's at come Thursday. Matt Flynn would get his fifth consecutive start if Rodgers is ruled out again.
