Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been placed on injured reserve (IR) and will not play again this year. Rodgers came off of the IR list and played last week, in a game the Packers lost to the Carolina Panthers. The Packers, without Rodgers, also lost 16-0 to the Minnesota Vikings last night. Some teams are saying the Packers violated league rules and should “release” Rodgers as a result but that’s not happening. In more intriguing news, the owner of the Carolina Panthers, Jerry Richardson, has announced plans to sell the team at the conclusion of the season; one of the more interesting names to emerge as a potential buyer is Eddie DeBartolo, who previously owned the San Francisco 49ers. DeBartolo’s teams won five Super Bowls in 14 years.
