Green Bay Packers say QB Aaron Rodgers 'made progress'

For the past few days, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has partaken in practice, though it’s been extremely limited and resulted in little more than the MVP taking snaps from backup centers.

Today though, Rodgers, for the first time since suffering a broken collarbone wore pads and according to head coach Mike McCarthy, ‘made progress‘ in regards to a return:

MM: Rodgers made progress today, but no more clarity regarding Sunday. Step closer, doing more in weight room.

Of course, how much progress is the question, something McCarthy wouldn’t answer.

Rodgers has been hopeful he’d be able to take the field this weekend against the Atlanta Falcons, however McCarthy has been extremely hesitant to suggest such, especially after doctors confirmed Rodgers was risking further injury if he played before the bone had fully healed.

It’s likely Rodgers will go through Friday’s practice as well, though, with Week 14 pushing closer and closer he might still need another week of recovery time before he suits up.
