Rodgers said on his radio show on 540-AM ESPN that he's doing everything he can to return from the fractured left collarbone suffered a week earlier in a 27-20 loss to the Bears. He said he's giving the bone time to heal, and that Tuesday was the best he had felt since getting hurt.
Rodgers pointed to "small victories" in his recovery, like sleeping through an entire night, and putting socks on without being in extreme pain.
"I haven't given up hope on playing any week. It depends on how I heal," Rodgers said on is radio show. "Obviously this week is probably not going to happen. Not going to happen."
Pressed again, Rodgers said "probably not going to happen."
Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that he thought the 2011 NFL MVP might be a couple weeks away, though he doesn't have a specific date.
