It has been an odd sight to see QB Aaron Rodgers donning a coach headset.
During a Week Nine battle against the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury. Rodgers broke his collarbone and has not played since.
This Sunday, the 7-6-1 Packers are set to take on the 6-8 Pittsburgh Steelers. Both teams can ill afford a loss, as the Steelers are on the verge of missing the playoffs, while the Packers are in the running for a division title if the pieces fall into place.
The Packers will have to take on Pittsburgh without Rodgers, per the team’s official website.
Final injury report: Rodgers out

Backup QB Matt Flynn, who led Green Bay to a franchise-tying 23-point comeback last week, will make his fourth start this season. In four appearances, Flynn has totaled six touchdowns and three interceptions, respectively.
If Flynn and co. defeat the Steelers and beat the Chicago Bears in Week 17, they will head into the playoffs with the NFC North title.
