Aaron Rodgers takes snaps from trainer in practice

Getty Images

Aaron Rodgers doesn’t act like a man ready to shut it down for the season. The Packers quarterback took snaps from a trainer and whipped a towel in a throwing motion during Wednesday’s practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

It marked the first time Rodgers did something during the portion of practice open to the media in the four weeks since he fractured his right collarbone. He worked on cardio and agility drills and simulated snaps from under center and in the shotgun.

Some of his rehab work involved his throwing motion in his attempt to maintain range of motion.

The Packers placed Rodgers on injured reserve Oct. 20, five days after his injury. He becomes eligible to start practicing six weeks from that date and eligible to play again two weeks after that.               

Rodgers last spoke to reporters Nov. 3, offering no guarantees that he would return in 2017. He said many factors would play into whether he plays again this season.

  1. “Many factors” being whether or not the Packers have managed to find their way into playoff contention without him. At this point that doesn’t seem very likely, but I suppose it makes sense to prepare for that scenario just in case.

  2. It marked the first time Rodgers did something during the portion of practice open to the media in the four weeks since he fractured his right collarbone.

    He becomes eligible to start practicing six weeks from that date and eligible to play again two weeks after that.
    ———————————
    If he’s not eligible to practice yet, why is he practicing with a trainer at PRACTICE?

    Violation of the IR rules?????????

  3. Excellent news. Arod will be back in no time. If Hundley can squeeze a couple of solid weeks out in the easier part of the sched, the Pack is in a pretty sweet spot going into the last quarter of the season to keep the leagues longest playoff streak intact.

  4. Why would Vikings react badly if Rodgers comes back?
    MN has beaten Rodgers 3 of the last times they have played him

    Including just 2 years ago in Week 17 at Green Bay on National TV with the division title on the line!
    Much like this year…Week 16 matchup in Green Bay, with the division title probably on the line

    No need to imagine. We all know he is eligible to come back and we expect it if GB is still in the playoff hunt.

    He is rehabbing not practicing. Big difference. He will rehab with trainers notice that the trainer was simulating snapping the ball.
    REHAB or RELAX bud

  7. Why would Vikings react badly if Rodgers comes back?
    ——-
    Probably because over the last 16 games between the two teams, the Vikings have only won 4 of them.

    Tony also doesn’t have SB ring

    That’s fine. I was just wondering. The words in the story suggest otherwise.

  10. The Eagles are going to the Superbowl anyways, so why even risk coming back and aggravating the not completely healed injury? Did you guys see what the Eagles did to the Broncos defense? Imagine what they would do to the packers.

    =============================================================
    Viking fan here. Are you expecting a reaction of fear? I can speak for many level headed Viking fans when I say I hope he does come back this year. I hope he plays at Lambeau against the Vikes. Mostly so afterward we don’t have to listen an over butt-hurt Packer fan base talk about how “we would have crushed you guys with Aaron playing.”

  12. If he comes back for that Vikes game, and I bet he does, I suspect there will be just a wee bit of hype.

  13. I hope you guys realize that every Packer fan that looks at this site just called 10 of their buddies and took the rest of the day off work to drink and celebrate…Celebrate that fact that Rodgers took a snap, and threw a towel. School will be called off tomorrow…

    Does the by Aerosmith “Dream On” mean anything to you?

  15. Keep having him do stuff for the press. Post lots of videos of him doing stuff. It might help those ticket sales.

  16. Since he went down, we have seen who the Packers really are right now. Don’t get me wrong, even as a Vikings fan I don’t want to see one of the best QB’s sitting on the sidelines. But we are seeing that they are not a good enough team to go anywhere in the playoffs. Even if by some chance they are still in the hunt when he becomes eligible, the smart thing to do is just shut him down for this year and make sure he is 100% for next year.

    The headline should have read “It’s Official: Rodgers Throws in the Towel”

    ——————-+
    They can’t. He isn’t anywhere near ready to start throwing towels.

  18. If he’s not eligible to practice yet, why is he practicing with a trainer at PRACTICE?

    Violation of the IR rules?????????

    ————————————————————

    He’s doing rehab work. You are allowed to rehab with a trainer or other non-playing member of the team if you are injured. As long as he’s not practicing in the team setting or doing work directly with a teammate, he can do what he wants individually while he is on IR.

  19. Hey, since Rodgers isn’t doing anything else these days…he might as well be the Packers ‘towel boy’.

  20. Since he went down, we have seen who the Packers really are right now. Don’t get me wrong, even as a Vikings fan I don’t want to see one of the best QB’s sitting on the sidelines.

Even if by some chance they are still in the hunt when he becomes eligible, the smart thing to do is just shut him down for this year and make sure he is 100% for next year.

    ————————————————————————

    Three of the next four opponents for the Packers are Baltimore, Cleveland, and Tampa Bay. Those are three very winnable games even with Brett Hundley at QB.

    Even if they lose to Pittsburgh and Carolina, they could easily be sitting at 8-6 when they play Minnesota on Dec. 23. 8-6 will almost certainly be at or near the NFC wild card lead. There’s no way Rodgers wont return if he’s medically ready to. And you know priority #1 for him if he can come back week 16 vs the Vikings will be to stick it to them good and hard.

    You can sense the palpitations already starting with Vikings fans.

    ÷÷÷÷÷

    Take a look at recent history, which is more relevant than what happened eight years ago. The Vikes have won three out of the last four meetings. The Vikes are not afraid of the Packers even with Rodgers.

  22. it’s because Huntley is starting to catch on and MM is starting to let him throw and he’s looking good. Rodgers is incredibly insecure so he’s working on coming back this season so he can start in the playoffs after Huntley gets them there

  23. Vikings are scared. We all know it. They are bent out of shape just having Greg Olsen ‘guest’ booth enhance announce one of their games while he’s on a bye week. Aaron Rodgers ghost is lurking Viqueen fans.

  24. I bet most Vikings fans arent scared – and the real football fans among them, are hoping Rodgers comes back healthy. They have a solid defense, disciplined coach, and an average quarterback and have been competitive with the Packers at least in recent history. I think this Packer team with a healthy Rodgers beats that Vikings team with anything they have in their QB room but thats why they play the games. Under the circumstances, this should be the Vikings year; historically they have collapsed when the opportunity has presented itself. Should be interesting.

  25. The worst thing that could possibly happen to the Packers was beating Chicago because…

    A. It makes McPancake and Dementia Ted “Think” this team once again has a legit shot
    B. It makes Rodgers return look more plausible because we “May” have a shot at the playoffs
    C. It makes the ignorant cheeseheads think this team still could make a run, which they CAN’T…..the roster is mediocre at best and injuries keep piling up!!!
    D. If Rodgers comes back he is 1 hit away from re-breaking that Bone and possibly ending his career

    Imagine the packers fans reaction when the hard hitting defense goes through that Swiss Cheese OL and puts him out for good.

  27. K. He’ll never be the same.
    His situation is comparable to all the subsequent RoboCop movies. They were box office failures after the 1st one.
    aaron will never be built the same.

    He’s performing so well… you don’t even know his name…………..

  29. Rodgers should not come back this season. He should let his body totally heal then train hard for next season.

    Now that is funny!

  31. From the teamscwebsite: it was the first time he had done anything in front of the media while his teammates were practicing.

    NFL IR rules: “These players may not practice with the team at any time, but can attend team meetings and be around the team. “
    ————————————————
    So the packers reporter is saying Rodgers was practicing when his teammates were practicing, but NFL rules for IR designation may NOT practice with the team At ANY time.

    Um Green Bay……….we have a problem.

    Your fantasy that Vikings fans are shaking in their shoes at the thought of Rodgers return can be filed with various other fantasies, such as the Packers 196 world championships, the idea that Packers stock confers equity ownership with shareholder rights similar to other stocks, etc.

    _________________________________

    Based on this as well as other Packer fan messages, I am beginning to wonder if there are televisions in Green Bay.

    A color commentator does not just sit in the booth during the game. He attends practices, has access to coaches and players, and is part of production meetings where coverage is oriented to expected game strategies and story lines.

    To show the world how silly the Vikings are for being concerned about this access, why don’t you invite Sam Bradford or some other Vikings player on Injured Reserve to attend your practices and meet with your coaches and players three weeks before your game with Minnesota?

  35. whoa…one can just feel the waves of bad karma emanating from Minnesota…my team plays in a different division and is lousy…some of you Vikings fans need to check yourself….this is one of the reasons why they never win anything….

  36. Vikings fans are something. To come so close to winning championships, only to be disappointed time and time again has made them.so bitter. Aren’t the Vikings due for their second half flop about now? Happens most years. Either way, Vikings fans will be disappointed with the season.

  37. There is a chronic health problem in Minnesota right now. There are several thousand fingernails chewed down to the bone.

    Neither is 2 yard tom (brady?)
    ——————————————–

    Assuming you meant Tom Brady with your response to a Jets fan masquerading/trolling as a Patriots fan, your implied response that Brady is not a great runner is true (the 2-yard Tom is just stupid).

    OTOH, Brady does not have to scramble as much as Aaron Rodgers, and almost all other NFL QBs that have come before him and will come after him, for the simple reason that Brady is much better at reading defenses than most, and has far better pocket awareness than most other NFL qbs. That is just one of the many reasons that Tom Brady is the Greatest NFL QB of All-Time.

    QBs like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Drew Brees, not a great scrambler among them, yet generally good to great results due to their ability to read defenses quickly, find an open receiver quickly, and the pocket awareness to create passing lanes as needed.

    QBs like Rodgers, Russell Wilson, and others fortunately for them have good to great scrambling ability, and generally good to great results, because they are not as good at reading defenses as the aforementioned players, and can extend plays with their feet until they find someone open that they should have found sooner.

    As a Viking fan, I’m looking forward to seeing Rodgers play the Vikings again this season; should be a great match-up. As for the last 16 games, I hate to break this to you, but these aren’t Leslie Frazier’s or Brad Childress’s Vikings. Minnesota has won three of the last five against the Packers. Honestly, I’m more concerned about the Lions than I am the Packers, because the Vikings have lost the last three to Detroit.

    =====================================================================
    The issue with your thinking is that GB isn’t better than any of those teams in those “winnable games”. Baltimore has the #6 defense and Cleveland has #11.

    I honestly hope they go 8-8 and miss the playoffs. Middle of the road draft pick that TT can use to grab a guy like Jerel Worthy who just washed out in Buffalo.

    Why would that be the case? Minnesota has a 2 game lead with a head to head win against GB. The Vikings are not concerned about them at this time, there is no need to be. They are focused on the Rams, you know, the next team on the schedule? Maybe you should worry about the Ravens and their #6 defense instead of circling the calendar date of the next Vikings game, huh?

    What reaction? If the Packers slime out some ugly wins in their cake walk schedule we expect him to come back.

    It’s possible the Vikings might have the division locked up by than and will be resting it’s starters. The Vikings have a defense that has given Rodgers fits past few years (except for last years mutiny at Lambeau field). The Vikings are actually scoring a lot this to. The Vikings are just as injured as the Packers but are beating good teams. Why don’t you worry about your own team?

    I could die tomorrow and rest easy with everything the Packers have provided me as a fan. Your best experience as a Viking fan is beating the Packers. There’s a sale on confetti at Target this week. Go load up.

    Don’t forget……..the Vikings need to win the SuperBowl or it’s a major choke-job. Your rules.

  46. As a die hard Vikings fan – Seriously, what can Rodgers play another 5-6 years? Some of you Packer Rubes got it in your head that Brett is gonna win ya some games, stick around and get a Wild Card birth and Rodgers is gonna comeback to make a play-off run to the Super Bowl.

    Thats a movie script PERIOD! If the Packer organization is smart, which they have shown they are not by pinning all their hopes on one guy year after year, not getting a serviceable veteran back up at QB, they would shut him down for the year. Rodgers has plenty of football left in him and I’d hate to see him brought back too soon and really get hurt.

    Whose to say too that he will be the same Rodgers when he does come back, he’ll think twice now about scrambling. Packer fan so you don’t make the play-offs this year….big deal. I’d be more worried about you GM and Ted Thompson getting a supporting cast around arguably one of the best to play the game.So if this situation happens again, your season isn’t over by game 4.

    Musta hit a nerve huh? Thats last year my man. I’m talking about the current situation – last year means nothing. If my memory serves me right it was YOUR team that got blown out in the NFC championship not mine.

    Your main man Aaron goes down and the Packers are kaputt, because the Pack has no depth…anywhere. Pack’s O Line is decimated with injuries, your defense cannot stop the run or the pass. Do I think the Vikings make the Super Bowl – no maybe not this year but neither will the Packers and the Vikings are sitting in a better situation right now than your beloved Pack.

    Fran Tarkenton Minnesota Vikings (1961–1966) Minnesota Vikings (1972–1978)
    Tommy Kramer Minnesota Vikings (1977–1989)
    Daunte Culpepper Minnesota Vikings (1999–2005)

    There is your three Viking QBs who played for more than 6 years so that point you made is moot. Packers HOFer in Favre, Future HOF Rodgers 20 rings in 20 some years? Your management failed to put a supporting cast around these two, Pack is lucky Favre was an iron man.

    The Pack would still be in the hunt if you had some depth, something the Vikings learned about their O line last year. Next man up, its not because Rodgers is out, its because your team didn’t have a contingency plan in place in case Rodgers did go down and he did. Rodgers has carried this team on his shoulders hence he has the same amount of rings Trent Dilfer has…ONE!Football is a team sport and the Packers and Packer Nation are just starting to figure that out. The only fairy tale ending in Green Bay this year is gonna be on the DVDs the kids watch on Christmas Day.

Do I think the Vikings make the Super Bowl – no maybe not this year but neither will the Packers and the Vikings are sitting in a better situation right now than your beloved Pack.

    Fran Tarkenton Minnesota Vikings (1961–1966) Minnesota Vikings (1972–1978)
    Tommy Kramer Minnesota Vikings (1977–1989)
    Daunte Culpepper Minnesota Vikings (1999–2005)

    There is your three Viking QBs who played for more than 6 years so that point you made is moot. Packers HOFer in Favre, Future HOFer Rodgers 2 rings in 20 some years? Your management failed to put a supporting cast around these two, Pack is lucky Favre was an iron man.

    The Pack would still be in the hunt if you had some depth, something the Vikings learned about their O line last year. Next man up, its not because Rodgers is out, its because your team didn’t have a contingency plan in place in case Rodgers did go down and he did. Rodgers has carried this team on his shoulders hence he has the same amount of rings Trent Dilfer has…ONE!Football is a team sport and the Packers and Packer Nation are just starting to figure that out. The only fairy tale ending in Green Bay this year is gonna be on the DVDs the kids watch on Christmas Day.
