Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took part in Thursday's practice, although coach Mike McCarthy said he still has not been medically cleared.
Rodgers took part in some limited work as the Packers prepared for Sunday's home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien took the first-team reps during 11-on-11 drills.
Rodgers has been sidelined more than six weeks since suffering a fractured collarbone against the Chicago Bears.
"Aaron Rodgers practiced well today," McCarthy said after practice. "We'll have a conversation tomorrow. He's still not medically cleared. He looked very good at practice. We'll make sure we get Matt ready to play. Matt took the majority of the snaps. I'll have an announcement tomorrow."
--Defensive lineman Johnny Jolly (shoulder/neck), has a significant injury, according to McCarthy, and has been ruled out for Sunday's game.
