Rodgers practices in pads, but Flynn runs first-string offense

Aaron Rodgers AP

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has taken another step toward returning to the field. But that doesn’t mean his return will come on Sunday.

Rodgers practiced in pads today in Green Bay, the first time he has put the pads on since breaking his collarbone a month ago. Matt Flynn, however, is continuing to take all the reps with the first-string offense, which is a strong sign that the Packers still aren’t planning on having Rodgers back on Sunday against the Falcons.

The Packers’ medical staff has not cleared Rodgers to return to contact, but Rodgers has indicated that he’s feeling good and hoping to play soon. If Rodgers can play, the Packers still have a real shot of catching the Lions and winning the NFC North. But without Rodgers, it’s hard to see the Packers winning out, which is what they’d have to do (while hoping the Lions lose two of their last four) to win the division.

At the moment, it looks like Flynn will be the starter for another week, even if Rodgers is getting closer.

    Aaron Rodgers collarbone reportedly feels a lot better

    I guess those Ryan Braun massages really helped

    The Packers were 5-2 with Rodgers. They are 0-4-1 without him. Yet, people expect Rodgers will come off the bench, after a 5 week layoff, and lead the team to 4 consecutive wins? Really? Is Rodgers going to play defense too?! And, even if he does (he won’t), the Packers would be 9-6-1 and could still miss the playoffs.

    Packers (5-6-1) Schedule:
    Falcons, Cowboys, Steelers, Bears

    Lions (7-5) Schedule:
    Eagles, Ravens, Giants, Vikings

    So, the Packers win out to go 9-6-1. The Lions have to go 2-2 to not win the division. Impossible? No. Improbable? Yes. I’ll bet everything I have, or am ever going to have, that the Packers do not win this division.

    their season is pretty much toast, do they really want to think about risking Aaron Rodgers health to take literally a 100 to 1 shot to even get the wildcard?

    looks completely crazy

  12. cmstrick says: Dec 5, 2013 2:38 PM

    Let him rest. If we can’t beat the Falcons (even without him) the rest of the season doesn’t hold much hope anyway…

  15. conormacleod says: Dec 5, 2013 2:39 PM

    Seattle 11-1
    San Fran 8-4
    New Orleans 9-3
    Carolina 9-3

    It’s highly likely that even if the Packers somehow went 4-0 (after they just went 0-4-1) that they would still miss the playoffs. There is no hope for the Wildcard spot. And the Lions most likely just need to go 2-2 to win the division. I’m guessing 8-8 is actually going to win this division though.

    Brett Favre would have thrown 5 interceptions and blamed it on his broken collarbone afterwards and everyone would have forgiven him. Only people with those blinders on think Brett Favre would have played. In today’s health conscious NFL, Favre would have never started that many games.

    All the Favre lovers are possibly correct about his on-filed excellence and ability to play through an injury. Great player.

    But off the field, you gotta wonder about they guy’s decision making process when he was with the Jets: Acting liking Anthony Wiener because he did not know Photos Are Forever On The Internet.

    He’s only out a cool five million or so in an Out of Court Settlement with Jen Sterger and co.

  29. emoney826 says: Dec 5, 2013 2:53 PM

    Lol @ Viking fans saying the packers are a one man team.

    Without AP, you have nothing. Let me repeat, without AP, you have nothing. And he’s got maybe one or two good years left in him. What will you bank on when he’s gone? Teddy Bridgewater? The guy you haven’t even drafted yet? The guy who has no guarantee of being successful when he reaches the NFL? Good luck with that.

    It’s funny how all the 15-year-old Vikings fans think losing Rodgers sunk this team. Losing Rodgers was just the last straw, AFTER losing 14 other number ones for the year.

    NO team could have weathered this storm; and if the Pack does pull off a miracle and win the division, what does that say about the other so-called teams in the division?

    Just admit it, the Vikings are wasting AP’s best years. By the time the Vikings put a consistant winning team together, AP will be gone!

    The only reason the haters come out for every Packer story like hyenas to a dead bird, is because they are jealous. There is no other reason.

    This is the poorest performing Packer team in 25 years (nothing to do with the W-L record,) and it is STILL better than the Vikings. How would that make you feel? The taste is obviously very bitter, and they refuse to accept the truth. They have an anonymous means by which to vent on this site, which contributes to keeping the crime rate from increasing further n Minneapolis.

    It’s not a lot, but I’m so glad we can help our less-fortunate neighbors to the West.

    Actually, he said: “Physically, and from a talent level, this is the best team I’ve ever been on.” And he said it seven games into the season. And just about every member of the 1996 Packer team just about coughed up their lunch, knowing he was blowing smoke up your butts. But hang onto eveything bit of hope you can. We know that’s all you have.

    As the late, great Bud Grant once famously said “Viking fans are small people (figuratively), living small lives beneath the giant shadow of the Green Bay Packers”.

    LOL bud never said that. I love watching packer fans make fools of themselves to the point of making stuff up

    If you guys think Mr. Rodgers can mask a lot of our problems, you should see what I’ve done here in the sewing room.

    You’re right, something DID happen in 2009. He tore the pack up, ripped out your hearts….TWICE, and called the 2009 Vikings the best team he EVER PLAYED ON! Hey dude, thanks for the reminder, sorry to bring up the nightmare!
    ////////////////////////////////////

    If you haven’t figured out by now that Favre is fond of hyperbole, then you need help. Every year in Green Bay, he’d say the SAME thing.

    And lets talk about 2009 shall we?

    “WHY DO YOU EVEN PONDER PASSING? THIS ISN’T DETROIT MAN, THIS IS THE SUPERBOWL!”

    Favre did exactly what we ALL told you he was going to do: Bring you to the brink of glory and then make a boneheaded, stupid move that defies all rational reasoning to ruin it.

    Green Bay fans were used to that happening in the playoffs.

    Sorry to bring up THAT nightmare for you.

    I get a good laugh out of Vikings fans smack talking while they as of now picking 6th in next years draft. Great team!

    ————————————————
    Jokes on you if they get a top QB to go along with all those first round young talented players, plus AP. They should dominate the pack for years to come because its going to take house cleaning for three years at minimum to get the Pack back.

  78. aldante66 says: Dec 5, 2013 7:03 PM

    I see him playing but the result will be the same, the defense giving up huge chunks of yardage.

    The good news is if they lose at home, season over, and everyone can hold hands cry and sign cubaya together and foolishly think, wait till next year when we won’t have all the injuries. I think they sang that toon last year as well.

    Funny, you think bringing the past up hurts vikings fans? Unlike packer fans, we don’t live in the past! Sucks, it happened, life goes on. Too bad packer fans can’t find fulfillment in anything else outside of packer football.

    It’s amazing how bad they are without him.
    Before he got hurt, Packers fans were talking about how much depth they have and how great Ted Thompson is. Rodgers goes down and everything breaks down. Rodgers, obviously, masks a lot of flaws that the Packers actually have.

    ———

    Whereas the vike’s flaws are just out there for everybody to see, week after week, year after year, never winning Super Bowl after never winning Super Bowl…

    duece5 says:

    Carly, we’ve had these discussions……

    Vikes are 2-1-1 the last 4 games. You guys are are 0-4-1 without Rodgers.

    I do understand that could be hard math for gbay fans to decipher, but what thatmeans, Carl, is you guys are worse than us right now.

    There endeth the lesson.

  81. muskyhunter2542 says: Dec 5, 2013 9:22 PM

    Vikings have two maybe three years left of mediocracy with Adrian Peterson. Then he is done and then it is basement dwelling for generations to come.

    nickynick04 says: Dec 5, 2013 5:37 PM

    What is with the Viking fans.
    trying to replace Philly as Arsehole fans of the league
    Looking for tid bits to compare.
    ” We won more games last month “….
    How about records so far this year…lets see who ends up in the cellar…………….

    duece5 says:

    For the record, of your 27 members, 5 of them made slight contributions.

    Vikings have 19 members in dude….know your facts.

    Your team has been around since 1919, ours since 1961, and we only have 3 less.

    If we were around in 1919, maybe we could boast about winning 13 “championships” against teams like the Sioux City Chiefs in the 1930s.

    The only realistic way we can compare AGAINST EACH TEAM is by division championships.

    Since we came in the league in 1961, we have won 18 division championships, you guys only have 11.

    We have won 50% more than you?

    So, do all those titles we garnered over the years mean anything compared to our current teams….nope not a thing.

    Could care less……the reality is, you guys had a run with 2 franchise qbs. We have been hit and miss.

    The past of the packers is DREADFUL from 1967-1992…..2 1/2 decades of futility except 1972.

    You won 1 title in that time! What does that mean today? Squat……just like championships in the 30s give this warm and fuzzy feeling to packer fans, it means squat in a 4-6 team league.

    In MODERN football, you guys have won 2 championships, we have won 1-the NFL championship.

    NEITHER team has been EXCEPTIONAL.

    The only dynasties have been: Pittsburgh 70s, San Fran 80s, Dallas 90s, and New England lately.

    So you bringing up the past about championships make Vikings fans laugh……we OWNED the packers for years, and hold the most division titles than you guys by a WIZDE margin.

    There endeth the lesson.

    When Rodgers gets back, do the Packers move back into the top 8 of the power rankings?

    They’d be nuts to let him play if he’s not absolutely 100% healed.

    Totally not true. We find plenty of additional fulfillment watching hapless and tasteless Viking football too.

  86. packmanfan says: Dec 5, 2013 10:58 PM

    Sure, maybe Brent would play though this injury.
    But we’d still be losing games or else get into the playoffs but then to have all our hopes dashed as he would yet again blow another Super Bowl chance.
    Naw. I’ll take Rodgers over Fail any day, any time.

    The only reason the haters come out for every Packer story like hyenas to a dead bird, is because they are jealous. There is no other reason.

    This is the poorest performing Packer team in 25 years (nothing to do with the W-L record,) and it is STILL better than the Vikings. How would that make you feel?

    ——————————————–

    Ah, typical hyPackerisy! Using your logic then stella (if you can call it that) the Packer fans must be extremely jealous since they’ve commented far more often on Viking stories over the past five years.

    I find it hysterical how you are now quantifying “the poorest performing Packer team” since someone proved you wrong when you stated it previously on another thread.

    But hey, when you’re right you’re right; the poorest performing Packer team in 25 years is better than the poorest performing Viking team in the last 50 years! Congrats!!

  88. truthserum4u says: Dec 6, 2013 1:55 AM

    @ nickynick

    Funny how you should tell the Viking fans to “stay classy” on the same thread your Packer brethren are making fun of a tragic bridge collapse. HyPackerisy lives on!

    @ filthy

    The Vikings & Packers split last season’s series. The season series is made up of two games a year. Playoff games count towards the overall head to head match-up, which is different than the season series. I know you’re just reaching now since you can no longer claim the number of years the Packers have beaten the Vikings twice a year. Reaching like this appears a little sad and desperate though.

  89. truthserum4u says: Dec 6, 2013 2:32 AM

    Please stop with all the “but the Packers have injuries” talk. The loss of Rodgers is huge, but all teams have injuries. The Vikings have had 13 starters miss time, and several others (Peterson, Greenway & Walsh to name a few) playing with considerable injuries. That isn’t the reason the Vikings are losing; it’s because they’re playing poorly; as is most of the Packers team as well.

    And about that 5-2 mark under Rodgers this year: they beat one, let me repeat that, ONLY ONE team with a winning record!! And that team was missing it’s best player. The reaming combined record for the four other teams? 16-31-1. In fact, look at the overall winning percentage for the Pack’s opponents so far this year compared to the other lower half teams. (Packers are #16) It’ the weakest one on the list!

    Current 2014 NFL Draft order:

    1. Houston Texans – 2-10 (.552)
    2. Jacksonville Jaguars – 3-9 (.505)
    3. St. Louis Rams (via Washington) – 3-9 (.521)
    4. Atlanta Falcons – 3-9 (.552)
    5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 3-9 (.578)
    6. Minnesota Vikings – 3-8-1 (.537)
    7. Cleveland Browns – 4-8 (.505)
    8. Oakland Raiders – 4-8 (.510)
    9. Buffalo Bills – 4-8 (.516)
    10. Pittsburgh Steelers – 5-7 (.479)
    11. New York Jets – 5-7 (.490)
    12. Tennessee Titans – 5-7 (.495)
    13. San Diego Chargers – 5-7 (.521)
    14. New York Giants – 5-7 (.545)
    15. St. Louis Rams – 5-7 (.557)
    16. Green Bay Packers – 5-6-1 (.468)
