Found November 13, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is hoping to be back in the lineup before Thanksgiving. “I would like to be back this week. Now, whether that’s realistic or not remains to be seen. I would never rule myself out on a Tuesday. Now, Mike probably already has, I think.” Sounds like Rodgers is ready to  get back on the field as soon as possible. “I haven’t given up hope on playing any week. It depends on how I heal and depends on what the next x-ray looks like,” Rodgers said. “Obviously, this week is probably not going to happen — not going to happen.

Thanks to a broken collarbone on a run-of-the-mill sack, the Green Bay Packers are without Aaron Rodgers.

With Dietrich-Smith, Center Gets No Attention

Evan Dietrich-Smith has provided a power blocker in the team's vastly improved running game. More than that, his hustle was an unsung key to the up-tempo offense led by Aaron Rodgers. Without Rodgers, Dietrich-Smith and the line will do what they can to make life easier for Scott Tolzien.
