Packers Injury Report: Aaron Rodgers Out Again, Brandon Bostick Done for Season

Doug Pensinger

To the surprise of no one, Aaron Rodgers has yet again been ruled out for the Packers' next game after not being cleared to play, but another Packer will be out for the rest of the year.

Stop me if you've heard this before. Aaron Rodgers practiced on Wednesday and Thursday in a limited fashion, was described in positive terms by his head coach in press conferences, but when Friday rolled around, he was not cleared to play for the upcoming game on Sunday. Yes, we're back to the same old story once again, as Rodgers will not play against Pittsburgh.

OUT: TE Brandon Bostick, DE Johnny Jolly, QB Aaron Rodgers
Probable: ILB Brad Jones, RB Eddie Lacy, OLB Mike Neal, OLB Nick Perry, NT Ryan Pickett

It should be no surprise that it was described repeatedly as an "organizational decision" to keep Rodgers out this week, as he has still not been cleared to play. McCarthy said this of Rodgers' effort to return:

I thought Aaron Rodgers did everything he could possibly do...the man attacked the rehab aspect of it, did everything in the weight room, did everything in practice...he understands where we are, everything has been explained, he wants to play.

Rodgers' injury is not the only one of note, however. After we learned yesterday about Johnny Jolly's injury keeping him out for the Steelers game and potentially beyond, another Packer will be shut down for the season, based on this tweet from Friday morning:

We don't know what surgery this is exactly, but McCarthy did confirm that Bostick will be out for the season.

He also said that Randall Cobb's status will be evaluated on Saturday. With Bostick likely going to injured reserve, that could open up the spot on the 53-man roster for Cobb to return.

McCarthy of course did say that he feels that they can beat the Steelers with Matt Flynn under center this week. We'll find out on Sunday afternoon.
