"He's moving right along".

Rodgers was seen working on the side in practice on Wednesday, which is a very good early indication that he might very well be able to return when first eligible.

Rodgers worked on cardio and agility drills and then took snaps from a trainer simulating both the under center kind and shotgun. That's when Rodgers would be allowed to return to practice.

He was placed on injured reserve, and the earliest he can return to game action is at the December 17 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Demovsky did note Rodgers didn't throw and can't be a participant in official practices for two more weeks under the NFL's injured reserve rules.

When Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6, the initial timeline was eight weeks.

Pakistan summons Indian envoy over 'ceasefire violations'
The Pakistan army fired at Indian positions with small arms, automatics and mortars in Poonch , reports said. This fresh attack comes a day after Pakistan resorted to unprovoked firing in the same area on Thursday.


The Packers started 4-1 with Rodgers throwing 13 touchdowns in the first four games.

But Rodgers isn't looking that far ahead.

But he said nothing has changed regarding his timeline for recovering from surgery to fix a broken collarbone. Rodgers underwent surgery on October 19 to have plates and screws inserted to stabilize his broken right clavicle.

He is on injured reserve.

"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". He threw for several weeks before he was finally cleared to return.
