Sources: Teams protest that Packers disregarded IR rule, consider Aaron Rodgers should be released

6:12 AM ET

Multiple teams complained to a NFL final week that a Packers disregarded a manners per players who are authorised to be placed on harmed haven — and Green Bay should have to recover quarterback Aaron Rodgers as a result, joining sources told ESPN.

NFL manners outline that a actor needs to have suffered a new damage that would sideline him during slightest 6 weeks to be placed on harmed haven and, if that is not a case, a group is thankful to recover a actor once he is healthy.

Meaningless or not, Packers’ shutout detriment does small to save face in mislaid year

The Packers had zero roving on Saturday’s detriment to a Vikings, though that doesn’t make a shutout detriment to Minnesota any reduction disconcerting.

Rodgers played final Sunday opposite Carolina, came out of a diversion “sore” in a difference of Packers conduct manager Mike McCarthy.

But Green Bay did not announce a preference about Rodgers’ standing until Tuesday, after a Packers had been separated from a intensity postseason spot, when a quarterback was placed on IR.

Had a Falcons mislaid to a Buccaneers on Monday night, gripping alive Green Bay’s playoff chances, it’s probable Rodgers could have played Saturday night opposite a Vikings. But a Packers opted to close him down, that teams complained was a defilement of NFL rules.

It is not believed that Rodgers suffered any form of new damage final Sunday opposite Carolina. If Rodgers didn’t humour a new damage though was placed behind on IR anyway, NFL manners outline that a Packers would have to recover him — that nobody expects to happen. It is because mixed teams were worried final week and lifted a issue. Teams wanted to know because a Packers were being postulated immunity.

The NFL referred all inquiries about a conditions to a Packers, who have declined comment.

But one source pronounced Rogers wasn’t going to be medically privileged to play in Green Bay’s game, and a Packers knew he wasn’t 100 percent.

Still, not gaining medical clearway and being placed on harmed haven are dual opposite things — that is what drew a madness of mixed teams around a league.

Rodgers was placed on IR and missed 7 games after pang a damaged right collar bone in Green Bay’s initial diversion opposite Minnesota on Oct. 15. He was activated final week and returned for final Sunday’s detriment to a Panthers, throwing 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions — a initial time he has been picked off that many times in a diversion given 2009.
