Packers QB Aaron Rodgers says what it will take to come back this season

Aaron Rodgers, Packers

So you’re saying there’s a chance? Injured Green Bay Packers superstar Aaron Rodgers is presumed out for the remainder of the season. However, the veteran gunslinger is out in the world talking about what it would take to return this season.

For what it is worth, don’t get too excited yet.

“The only reason to come back would be that I’m healed completely,” Rodgers said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Michael Cohen. “If that doesn’t happen in eight weeks, there’s not even a conversation. … The biggest thing right now is range of motion and the strength, which ultimately won’t be the issues as we get to the end of this season. It will be the bone healing. But there’s a timetable.

“I believe I can practice in six weeks based on the schedule. So if I’m at a place at that point healing-wise and ability to throw, then I’ll be out here. And if I’m not, I won’t.”

Dreams crushed? Probably, but at least Aaron Rodgers isn’t completely ruling out a return.

Rodgers has had surgery, and was placed on injured reserve by the Packers. There’s little reason — at least the of the earnest variety — to believe he will return this season. Not to mention that if Green Bay begins to fall to smithereens between now and a potential return, the Packers would be best served holding him out until next year.

Nevertheless, at least now Green Bay fans can hold out some hope for a miraculous return by their incredible quarterback.
