Packers' Aaron Rodgers sighted at Packers practice

Rodgers jogs, takes snaps at Packer practice

GREEN BAY - GREEN BAY, WI -- Green Bay Packers Quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, returned to practice on Wednesday afternoon.

This was the first sight of Rodgers participating in any football-related activity since sustaining a broken right collarbone on his throwing shoulder following a hit from Minnesota Vikings linebacker, Anthony Barr, during the first quarter of a week six matchup.

Rodgers stretched and ran sprints, according to Burks.

Since Rodgers' injury, including week six where Rogers missed a majority of the game, the Packers are 1-3 and have been outscored 67-95. Further, the Packers points per game have dropped from 27 to 16 with Rodgers out of the lineup and backup Quarterback, Brett Hundley, under center.

Rodgers will be eligible to return from the injured reserve list prior to the 5-4 Packers week 15 contest against the 7-3 Carolina Panthers. 

The Packers will finish the season with a week 16 home rematch against the 7-2, NFC North leading Vikings, and a week 17 finale against the 5-4 Detroit Lions.

This is the 33-year-old Rodgers' second collarbone injury during his career. He broke his left, non-throwing shoulder collarbone against the Chicago Bears on Nov. 11, 2013 after he was sacked by Bears' outside linebacker, Shea McClellin.

Despite the 2013 offense struggling behind a combination of Matt Flynn, Scott Tolzien and Senaca Wallace to the tune of 21 points per game, Rodgers returned in week 16 to face the Bears and clinch a playoff spot with a 33-28 victory on a walk-off touchdown to Randall Cobb.
