Did the Packers violate the IR rule with Aaron Rodgers?

With playoff hopes dashed, Rodgers returned to the Packers' injured reserve list to shut him down for the rest of the season.

The Packers announced Tuesday that Rodgers was back on IR. He spent most of the season inactive with a broken collarbone.

Justin McCray filled in admirably at right tackle after Jason Spriggs (knee) got hurt on the first play from scrimmage. The Vikings won, 16-0.

Even if he doesn't want to hear it.

"I've never felt more defeated, more embarrassed by a performance", said receiver Randall Cobb, and he actually didn't drop a pass.

"We just went out there and did our jobs, nothing too big", defensive end Danielle Hunter said. If the player misses less than six weeks, the team is obligated to cut him once he is deemed healthy. Against the Ravens, the Packers looked close to helpless at times. Because that's what they do.

It's awesome to see Harrison Smith continue to prove that he is an elite-level safety in the NFL a well as see David Morgan getting some love for his versatility.

Rodgers will remain in Green Bay, so who will be the 2018 Browns' quarterback? Minnesota left frigid Lambeau Field with its first shutout since a 13-0 win over Detroit on Dec. 5, 1993.

Starting outside linebackers Clay Matthews (hamstring) and Nick Perry (ankle/shoulder) missed the game, along with cornerback Damarious Randall (hamstring). Some, however, have taken issue with the nuts-and-bolts realities of the maneuver.

The six-year veteran played like a Pro Bowler, even if he didn't make the NFC roster this season. But the car rides home, the time in the shower, the walk with the new dog - I should be thinking about my family.

The Packers skill players did Brett Hundley no favors, finishing the game with five dropped passes, two of which can be credited to cold-weather native Lance Kendricks. And for some fans, that may be all you need to hear. Purple-clad Minnesota backers celebrated on a night when temperatures were in the single digits. As Schefter points out, though, not having medical clearance and being placed on injured reserve are two different things. Keenum connected with Diggs for a gain of 20 and Thielen for 21.

Tom Richardson, a former NFL executive who teaches digital media at Columbia University's Sports Management graduate program, said too many prime-time games have worn out fans' appetite for football. The Vikings offense should have performed better, lucky enough the Vikings secured the win.

Rookie Michael Clark only finished with 3 catches for 39 yards, but his paltry numbers led the team in receiving.

"There was a lot more going on than just the quarterback", McCarthy said, adding that Hundley will start against the Lions.
