Rodgers throws well in pregame before Packers-Steelers game

For those hoping for a hero to ride in on a white horse and save the 2017 Green Bay Packers season, you have your visual evidence that it's possible.

Injured Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw well in warmups before most of his teammates took to Heinz Field in pregame before Sunday's Packers-Steelers showdown.

Rodgers, who has a broken collarbone in his throwing arm, was able to throw the football at least 50 yards during warmups.

He currently is on the Packers' injured reserve list, with the capability of returning to the active roster by December 17, the Packers' third-to-last regular season game at Carolina.

Realistically, the Packers (5-5) need to own a 7-6 record before that game for a Rodgers-led team to win out and give Green Bay a realistic shot at a wildcard berth.
