GREEN BAY, Wisc. -- Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers was set to begin the evaluation process from his latest concussion.

Rodgers was hurt during the second quarter of Sunday's 7-3 loss in Detroit and sat out the second half.

McCarthy said Monday that he would have a better idea of Rodgers' status later this week, and that doctors would take into account the first concussion he sustained earlier this season.

"He's just getting ready to start to go through the first procedure, first process of the testing and so forth," McCarthy said Monday. "They had him sleep in this morning.

"We're not going to take any chances," McCarthy added. "No different than on game day. We'll always take the high side of caution in these types of situations."

Rodgers suffered a concussion at the conclusion of the Week 5 loss to Washington, but did not miss the following week's game.

Before leaving Sunday's game against the Lions, Rodgers had completed 7-of-11 passes for 46 yards with an interception. He also finished as the team's leading rusher with 25 yards on two scrambles.

Matt Flynn replaced Rodgers and threw for 177 yards with an interception on 15-of-26 passing.
