Aaron Rodgers has been sidelined since Green Bay's clash with Chicago on Nov. 4.
Green Bay, WI (SportsNetwork.com) -
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will again be a spectator this Sunday as he continues his recovery from a fractured collarbone.
Rodgers practiced for this week's big matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, but Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the decision was made to keep the 2011 NFL MVP sidelined for another week after discussions with medical personnel.
"It's been a difficult morning, going through the conversation with Aaron and Dr. McKenzie," said McCarthy on Friday. "He feels like he's ready to play. He's had a good week of preparation. He did very little today. He's very disappointed, but speaking with Dr. McKenzie, this is the right decision."

The Second City shakeup at the game's most important position is all about pedigree.
A simple eye test says the 34-year-old Josh McCown's production has dwarfed the far more high-profile Jay Cutler's this season.
Cutler has the resume, though, and he is the starting quarterback in Chicago again because McCown is the ultimate backup, a veteran player who understands his position in life isn't about making waves.
