Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday the decision about his playing status this week will come on Thursday.
Coach Mike McCarthy had said on Monday that the Packers plan to announce a decision on Rodgers' status earlier than they did in past weeks. The past two weeks, the Packers waited until Friday to announce that Matt Flynn would be the starting quarterback.
Mike Pelfrey was demoted to the bullpen for the start of the season.
Pelfrey lost out to Tommy Milone for the fifth starter's job, but that hardly seems like a surprise. His move to the pen means that he's probably not even going to see much of a chance even if the Twins need a spot start as they can always bring back Trevor May who also looked better than Pelfrey. You can feel good about ignoring Pelfrey in all fantasy formats. Analysis: Howard Bender
