Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned to practice Saturday. But reporters didn’t have a chance to get a look him until Wednesday. And according to wide receiver Jordy Nelson it was worth the wait as he said Rodgers (collarbone, injured reserve) “looks like himself” in practice.
“He throws the ball unlike any I’ve ever seen,” Brett Hundley said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “Still slinging it.”
Rodgers has been running the scout team with backup Joe Callahan and practice-squad quarterback Jerod Evans in practice this week. Rodgers underwent surgery on his broken right clavicle on October 19 and was placed him on injured reserve the following day. He’s eligible to return to the active roster in Week 15, but coach Mike McCarthy said he still needs to be cleared for contact.
If Rodgers can return next week he will not get an easy task as the Packers will travel to Carolina to take on the Panthers.
