Practice report: Rodgers' work increases
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued to work with the backup centers during individual drills at Wednesday’s practice just like he did last week.
But unlike last week, he did more throwing on the run.
At one point, Rodgers scrambled to his left and threw a sharp pass to Jordy Nelson along the sideline. Rodgers said he experienced pain his collarbone after last Wednesday's workout, so how he feels after this latest session will help determine when he can return from his Nov. 4 injury.
While Rodgers worked with backup lineman J.C. Tretter and practice-squad lineman Garth Gerhart, Matt Flynn took snaps from starting center Evan Dietrich-Smith.
Running back Eddie Lacy, who finished Sunday’s win over the Atlanta Falcons after he sprained his right ankle in the second quarter, was not practicing during the portion that was open to reporters.
Others not practicing were: linebacker Jamari Lattimore (knee), linebacker Brad Jones (ankle), outside linebacker Mike Neal (abdomen) and defensive end C.J. Wilson (ankle).
Receiver Randall Cobb, who is eligible to come off the injured reserve-designated to return list this week, was not practicing. Cobb was scheduled to test his fractured tibia in a workout on Tuesday.
