Packers QB Rodgers limited in practice

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers practiced on a limited basis Wednesday but he will need to practice fully by Friday to get cleared to play Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

Rodgers was able to participate in all the individual drills as he recovers from a broken left collarbone.

"Basically, he did everything that he was cleared to do medically," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after practice. "I mean, he's obviously not cleared, so he was in a rehab mode. I thought he looked good for what they asked him to do. (Rodgers) did everything seamlessly."

Tests on Rodgers' collarbone taken Tuesday did not show enough progress for him to be cleared to play. No further tests are scheduled. Still, he has not been ruled out yet.

"It's a medical decision," Rodgers said. "There were three parts to it: the strength, the range of motion and the evidence that we see on the scan. Two out of the three are passed so far."

Matt Flynn, who started last Thursday's 40-10 loss to the Detroit Lions, took first-team reps.

Rodgers was injured Nov. 4 against the Chicago Bears.
