Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw Wednesday for the first time since breaking his collarbone Nov. 4 vs. the Bears. "He did not participate in practice," coach Mike McCarthy said. "He actually did some throwing today for the first time on the field. We’ll stay with that status."
Rodgers hinted he's targeting a Week 12 return vs. Minnesota, according to ESPNWisconsin.com. The Thanksgiving game at Detroit is another possible return date.
Ahmad Brooks (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Brooks is going through the league’s post-concussion protocol this week, which could create more opportunities for Tank Carradine to showcase his skills as an outside pass rusher. The main subs for Brooks on Sunday is rookie Eli Harold, who is ready for the increased workload, however Cory Lemonier and Tank Carradine will be ready to go if needed. Analysis: Dom Murtha
