Aaron Rodgers: 'Discomfort kept me out'

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reveals that discomfort in his collarbone kept him out of his side's clash with the Atlanta Falcons.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has revealed that "discomfort" during practice stopped him from playing against the Atlanta Falcons.

Rodgers has been out for over a month after he fractured his collarbone in his side's defeat to the Chicago Bears.

"The scan last week did not show [enough] healing. We would need different results this week in order to play this week," Rodgers told ESPN

"Doing quick movements or giving a handoff with left hand, those are things that gave me some discomfort. That was a clue.

"It's frustrating, very frustrating. I was trying to push it before science tells you before it's possible."

The Packers are 6-6-1 in their season going into week 15.
