Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy reveals that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is two weeks away from returning to action for his side.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has revealed that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still a "couple of weeks" from returning to action.

The 29-year-old sustained a collarbone fracture during his side's defeat to the Chicago Bears last week and was replaced by Seneca Wallace.

However, Wallace himself got injured during their loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, leaving Scott Tolzien at quarterback who struggled immensely during the game.

This has now left the club scrambling for a signal caller, but when asked about a possible return for Rodgers, McCarthy told reporters: "[It is] a couple [of] weeks away."

The Packers are 5-4 in their season following their defeat to the Eagles.
