McCarthy on Rodgers: 'He's making really good progress'

Rodgers working out while his team practices has at least served the objective of exciting some of his teammates.

Rodgers worked on cardio and agility drills and then took snaps from a trainer simulating both the under center kind and shotgun.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy spoke to the media Thursday, saying the staff are optimistic about Rodgers' recovery. "He's moving right along". Rodgers underwent surgery on October 19 to have plates and screws inserted to stabilize his broken right clavicle.

Rodgers was put on injured reserve October 20 and would be eligible to return after eight weeks. The Packers' final three games are at Carolina, Minnesota at home, and at Detroit.

The elephant population declined 6 percent overall in Zimbabwe but dropped by 74 percent within one specific region. The decision to lift the ban was described as "jarring" by the Humane Society .

Rodgers had surgery, which he says included inserting a metal plate he'll carry for the rest of his life.

"It was just good being back on the practice field", Rodgers said in a text message to Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin. "Only back if it's completely healed".

"I think he's making really good progress", McCarthy said, per the team. At the same time, we've still got to hold up our end of the bargain and steal a few wins throughout these next several weeks in hopes that we've got a shot with him coming back.
