150108-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY — Packers QB Aaron Rodgers returned to the practice field for the first time since re-injuring his calf on Dec. 28 against Detroit, and during the team’s 11-on-11 work on Thursday, he took 50 to 60 percent of the snaps, according to Mike McCarthy.

“Aaron practiced in the team periods. He looked good,” McCarthy said. “He went down and did everything we asked him to do today. It’s always a better practice when he’s out there.”

The 50-60 percent was the target McCarthy set for Rodgers. He was officially listed as limited on the injury report.

Elsewhere on the injury list, CB Davon House (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis for the second straight day and appears to have a decent chance of playing on Sunday.  He has missed the last three games.

“Davon looks like he’s put together two good practices,” McCarthy said. “We’ll see what tomorrow brings as far as the evaluation. He’s moving along.”

TE Brandon Bostick returned to practice as a full participant after missing Wednesday’s workout due to an illness. DE Josh Boyd (knee) was a limited participant after sitting out Wednesday, while S Sean Richardson (knee) was also limited Thursday.
