Packers' Matt Flynn takes starting reps; Rodgers' chances closer to none

ALLEN PARK — Indications are stronger that Matt Flynn will be the Packers’ starting quarterback on Thursday at Ford Field.

“We had Matt Flynn take the starter reps today that’s the way we’re working it right now,’’ coach Mike McCarthy said in a conference call to the Detroit media about 2:10 p.m. on Tuesday.

Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a broken collarbone, did some work at Tuesday’s practice.

“Aaron had a good day as far as the path for him to come back,’’ McCarthy said. “He was able to do some things. He felt good about it after practice. I would say we went from slim to none, to closer to none. I don’t see it happening.’’

The Lions (6-5) are atop the NFC North with the Bears (6-5) while the Packers are a half game back.

Lions’ safety Louis Delmas called it a “must-win” game today.
