McCarthy: No official decision on Rodgers playing for Packers vs. Vikings

The Green Bay Packers' head coach is not as officially sure Monday as his quarterback seemingly was Sunday about his health for the Packers' next game.

"We're still getting all the information...we do have some information. No decision has been made," said Mike McCarthy about Aaron Rodgers' availability against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday following a knee injury Sunday night against the Chicago Bears.

"Aaron wants to play. He's driven to play. That's all I have right now."

Rodgers was carted off the field after the second quarter injury during the sack. When he came back on the field Sunday night after halftime, the Packers were down 20-0.

Rodgers led one of the greatest comebacks in franchise history with three fourth-quarter touchdown passes and a 24-23 win.

"At halftime...we were preparing to play with DeShone (Kizer)," said McCarthy.

"We walked into the tunnel and had a chance to talk with Aaron and Dr. McKenzie, he was prepared to go."

Rodgers said to NBC after the game that he will play in Sunday's contest against the Minnesota Vikings (9 a.m. on WTMJ and your desktop computer).
