Aaron Rodgers Still Not Cleared, Randall Cobb Back
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers appears to be in the same place he was last week. He hasn’t been cleared to play and the team will take the week to determine his status.
Meanwhile, Randall Cobb participated in his first practice since fracturing his tibia.
Rodgers opened practice taking reps with second-team center J.C. Tretter, while Matt Flynn worked with starter Evan Dietrich-Smith.
He’s doing better. He’s still not been cleared by the medical staff. He threw the ball extremely well. He looked sharp. He’s getting better,” said Packers coach Mike McCarthy.
“He still has not been cleared by the medical staff. He is a limited practice participant.”
Cobb, meanwhile, was limited, which means he probably won’t be playing this week.
“Randall Cobb looked good. It was good to have him out there,” McCarthy said.
It should be noted that running back Eddie Lacy also sat out Wednesday’s practice, but that appears to be a precaution. He missed most of last week’s practices as well and McCarthy says he fully expects Lacy to play on Sunday.
