Aaron Rodgers Took Another Step Today
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers practiced in pads for the first time since fracturing his collarbone, today.
He also did some additional work in individual drills, but didn’t practice with the offense. Matt Flynn took the snaps with the No. 1 unit there.
Yesterday, Rodgers was limited to short and intermediate throws, so he’s progressing.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers hasn’t been cleared by doctors yet, though.
“He has not been cleared yet. If he wants to share details, he can,” McCarthy said. “He’s doing better, he’s a step closer. I have not ruled him out.”
Yesterday, the Packers said they would make a decision on Rodgers’ availability for the Falcons game on Friday or Saturday.
Our guess is you’re going to get another week of Matt Flynn.
