Aaron Rodgers in uniform, doing drills at practice Tuesday

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 26, 2013 – 12:03 pm

QB Aaron Rodgers

QB Aaron Rodgers

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was wearing his customary red No. 12 practice jersey and going through drills during the portion of Tuesday’s practice that was open to the media.

Practicing inside the Don Hutson Center, Rodgers was seen working on C-QB exchanges, executing footwork and dropback drills, and throwing short passes to receivers during position drills, along with backups QBs Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien. It’s his first action on the practice field since breaking his collarbone on Nov. 4.

On Monday, Head Coach Mike McCarthy categorized Rodgers’ chances of playing on Thursday in Detroit as “slim to none,” adding that Rodgers would have to practice in order to play.

    Glad to hear that Aaron is back practicing! I will be cheering when he returns to the playing!! I would be surprised if he plays Thursday – and if he does – our O-line better block like their life depends on it. We’ve all seen how the Lions play (read dirty) at times. Go Pack Go!

    Him just practicing should boost the players around him, making them know that they need to win one for him when he comes back (hopefully) Dec 8th

    *should be “playing field” :)

    McCarthy is just putting him out there to confuse the Lions a little.

    Make the Lions “sweat” it!

    It doesn’t matter to me. It is really good to see him out there throwing some balls. Even if he doesn’t play Thursday, there might be a good chance we will see him the following week.

    He will play Thursday against lions AND PUT US BACK WHERE WE SHOULD BE

    I would love for Aaron to play. Although I see this being a tougher game for Detroit after a loss to the 3 win bucs. Matt Flynn did a great job for being thrown into the game. If Scott Tolzien plays, we lose, and the season is pretty much over. Flynn plays, we have a chance. Rest Rodgers for another week.

    Go A. Rodgers, Go Packers…

    Activate Rodger as the emergency QB just in case MF & ST get hurt on that hard field in Detroit.

  13. By Rick on Nov 26, 2013 | Reply

    Yeah, that is what I want to see! I say keep him out another week. Detroit plays dirty, we don’t need to see another injury soon. Get Flynn practiced up and the Defense needs to start tackling again. We need Shields back to cover Megatron!

    I wonder who Detroit prepares for?

    Just hope he’s not rushing back. Weird seeing him back from a broken collar bone before Cutler is back from an ankle sprain. Cutler suffered that injury a week earlier as well. It’ll only take one cheap shot from Suh to knock Rodgers out for the season.

    Great to hear he’s back. Drink more milk A-Rodg, we need you to heal quickly. Maybe you could get an advertising deal with a milk company like Joe Mauer

    GO PACK GO!

    Im sure the O line will pick their game up if he plays thursday. Knowing, he is in there…and that the time is now……we just need some def help….bad

    Too bad Rodgers can’t play defence.

    Go Pack

    I would rather see Flynn start this Thursday just because of Rodgers injury. When Detroit is losing and I mean when not if wouldn’t put it past Suh to take a cheap shot at Aaron and that is not what the Packers need at this point.

  21. By Rick on Nov 26, 2013 | Reply

    What of Perry, Jenkins or Shields. Honestly the defense is more of a concern for me. Having A-Rod at QB last week would not have stopped the Vikings from running for over two hundred yards.

  22. By jeffbartsch on Nov 26, 2013 | Reply

    All you people wanting him to play Thursday have clearly never broken a collarbone. They don’t heal in three and a half weeks. Period. It would be foolhardy beyond belief to put him on a playing field where he could/will get hit. We want the face of our team to be good and healed so when, not if, when he takes a hit, his collarbone has a little bone built back up at the point of the break for it to hold. 3 week, 4 weeks, 5 weeks – that’s not enough. I don’t care if you’re Superman, bones don’t heal that fast. Six to eight weeks, people. Have patience.

    Pack would be stupid to play Rodgers, whatever QB plays is going to get hit by a mad Detroit front 4…..

    Jeffbartsch and PeteR are thoughtful observers. And by the way, all this “withholding information” nonsense is just that. It doesn’t make a g’damn bit of difference to Detroit who starts at QB for GB. Their game plan is set. Detroit will look to exploit a weak GB defense, run the score fast and high, and force GB to prove it can keep up.

    Play Rodgers as the second string QB…that’ll keep Detroit from tackling Flynn too hard.

    (Lion’s LB after he hits Flynn in the game) He looks nervously over at the sideline to see Rodgers warming up and turns to Flynn. “Hey man…you’re okay right? I didn’t hit you that hard…here let me help you…”

    If he isn’t playing, why do we care?

    Glad to see Rodgers back practicing.

    C’mom Aaron, suck it up like a man and get back out there. WE NEED YOU if there is any chance of making the playoffs.
