The Packers take on the Lions at Ford Field in Detroit on Thanksgiving Day.  Kickoff is set for 11:30 a.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will miss his third consecutive game, and Matt Flynn will become the Green Bay Packers' fourth starting quarterback of the season Thursday when the Packers play the Lions in Detroit.

Rodgers, who suffered a fractured left collarbone Nov. 4 against Chicago on the opening possession of the game and has watched his team go 0-3-1 since the injury, practiced on Tuesday but was ruled out by coach Mike McCarthy on Wednesday.

The Packers (5-5-1) are hoping Rodgers will return for their Dec. 8 game against Atlanta at Lambeau Field. Their hope is to stay in the NFC North race until Rodgers' returns. The Lions (6-5) and Bears (6-5) are tied for the division lead.
