Aaron Rodgers going to meetings, starting rehab
GREEN BAY — Packers QB
Rodgers also has begun rehab on his surgically repaired right collarbone, and he will be splitting his time between that and attending meetings to help
“It’s great to have him back,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said prior to Tuesday’s practice. “Him stepping away and being out of town really helped him deal with his situation. He looks good.”
The time off presumably helped the entire team get healthier, though McCarthy provided no injury updates. He also did not announce any specific timeline for Rodgers’ potential return this season.
The focus is on getting him healthy and having him available for Hundley to use as a resource, beginning with Monday night’s home home game vs. Detroit.
Tuesday’s practice was slated to concentrate on applying the fundamental and technique work reviewed during an “across the hall” exercise, whereby offensive coaches gave the defensive players their evaluation, and vice versa, as though one side were game-planning to face the other. Installation of the game plan vs. the Lions also was scheduled to begin.
“We need to play faster, on both offense and defense,” McCarthy said. “We have to get dialed into a game plan. The process is the same for Aaron as any quarterback, and he’ll definitely help with that.”
As for the announcement over the bye weekend that tight end
Packers. com will have more following practice and locker room interviews.
