ESPN'S Adam Schefter says that the Packers are "targeting" the return of quarterback Aaron Rodgers for 14 days from now after recovery from a collarbone fracture.

He says the team has a target of Dec. 17 at Carolina, if the team is in playoff contention.

Mike McCarthy discussed more about Rodgers' performance in practice and how he completed a full Hail Mary.

Original story from Saturday

The currently injured all-world quarterback of the Green Bay Packers has taken another step toward reaching the field for a game.

Ian Rapoport of reports Aaron Rodgers practiced Saturday, fulfilling the plan Coach Mike McCarthy expressed on Friday.

This is his first extended practice since his injury on Oct. 15 at the Minnesota Vikings when Anthony Barr drove him into the ground following a pass play.

However, Rapoport reports many steps still have to be taken for Rodgers to reach a healthy-enough status with his broken collarbone to play. He could be eligible to play as early as Dec. 17 at Carolina.
