“He’s ill of a nature we can’t discuss right now,” Bowles said after practice Friday. “We’ll see going forward where he is and go from there. … He’s a tough guy. It’s a serious thing.”

Bowles was uncertain whether Rodgers would be with the team this weekend.

Bowles and Rodgers have been on the same coaching staffs for three teams (Cowboys, Dolphins and Jets) dating back 13 years.
