Larrivee: Rodgers, Packers doctors in 'lock-step'

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Dec 19, 2013

Decisions about the most talked-about bone in Wisconsin are once again the subject of big-time scrutiny on Packers Planet.

Are the Packers being too careful with Aaron Rodgers?  Shouldn't they let him decide to unleash his MVP-caliber passing fury against the Pittsburgh Steelers with the season at stake on Sunday?  Or will there be extra risk for long-term injury?

Even if Rodgers' emotions may not like it, Packers radio voice Wayne Larrivee tells 620WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Morning News" that he is on the same page with team doctors.

"There's discussion going on, but I think they're in lock-step," said Larrivee. 

"I do think Aaron has a  good relationship with Dr. McKenzie.  All of us (who) travel with the team, who know Dr. McKenzie have the highest regard for him. He'll make the decision when it's right for Aaron Rodgers to play and not more."
