BBAO: Aaron Rodgers making progress

We're Black and Blue All Over:

Although concussions are always difficult to judge, the early vibe around Lambeau Field is that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is recovering well from his. Rodgers didn't practice Wednesday, but the Packers will re-test him Thursday morning and, if all goes well, Rodgers could be on track to start Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

Rodgers hasn't missed a start since taking over the job in 2008. He is scheduled to speak to reporters Thursday afternoon.

Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com: "Aaron Rodgers didn't take a single snap Wednesday, and yet, when the Green Bay Packers quarterback left the locker room after practice, he did so having given subtle indications that he play in Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins at Lambeau Field. Now, nothing he did was proof that he will pass all of his required post-concussion cognition tests, get the go-ahead from an independent neurologist and make his 39th consecutive start (including playoffs). But when someone suggested to him that he didn't seem like a guy coming off a concussion, Rodgers smirked. 'What concussion?' he said as he walked out of the room."

We'll keep you updated.
