Aaron Rodgers admitted to reporters on Wednesday that his thumb injury remains an issue for him.

Despite being a participant in Wednesday’s jog-through — albeit on a limited basis — Rodgers was once again limited on Thursday.

This is the same case as last week, when Rodgers was limited in the second day of the practice week. But in Weeks Six and Seven, Rodgers was a full participant in Thursday’s session.

Still, Rodgers is expected to play in Sunday’s game against the Lions irrespective of his practice time.

Receiver Allen Lazard (shoulder) remained limited on Thursday after getting back on the practice field on Wednesday. Christian Watson (concussion) was limited on Thursday after he didn’t practice Wednesday.

Offensive tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), linebacker De’Vondre Campbell, and cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles (ankle) remained out of practice.

Offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins (knee/foot) was upgraded to a limited participant. Linebacker Preston Smith (shoulder/neck) remained limited. And tight end Marcedes Lewis received a rest day.

  1. He wanted to throw to Lazar yesterday, so he did. His hand needs rest, so he takes off today. He’s injured same as last week. Not really news here.

  2. This is Rodgers way of pouting that management didn’t do anything to add a receiver at the trade deadline.

    Is it weird to think the Packers have the best RB tandem in the NFL?

    -Not even the best tandem in their division. Compare their stats to Herbert and Montgomery.

    “Is it weird to think the Packers have the best RB tandem in the NFL?”

    It is a valid opinion. I disagree though. I think Chubb and Hunt are the best tandem.

  5. He didn’t practice last Wed. before the loss to Buffalo. He was “limited” this week. He wasn’t there for OTA’s. Its no wonder he has no chemistry with his receivers or team. He is never out there with his team– a lot like Tom Brady this year. It seems like Rodgers did more than play golf with Brady– he copied his plan to be absent from his team every chance he had.
