"I am feeling better, not thinking about my injury at all," Rodgers added. "It comes down to ... is the bone healed or is there a large risk?"
"This is something (general manager) Ted Thompson and I need to sit down and we need to assess all the information and to decide if it's time for him to play," McCarthy said Monday.
Rodgers undoubtedly desires to return to the field but is cognizant of the situation.
"Aaron wants to play, has wanted to play for the last couple of weeks. He fully accepts (and) understands everything going on with his injury, so this is really a decision for Ted Thompson and I, representing the organization. That's how it works."
Rodgers' situation is similar to players who battle concussion symptoms. No matter how badly he wants to play, he won't gain clearance until the medical tests come back clean.
