GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Aaron Rodgers' potential return from a broken collarbone took a major step forward this week. But, as Rodgers has said all along, there has to be a reason to return.
The Packers quarterback, who is on injured reserve, went through a conditioning session on Wednesday that included taking snaps and mimicking the throwing motion with a towel. It was his first time doing anything football-related on the field since suffering the injury at Minnesota on Oct. 15.
"I think he's making really good progress," coach Mike McCarthy said before Thursday's practice. "I know the training staff and the strength and conditioning staff are very pleased with where he is. He's moving right along."
