GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued to work with the backup centers during individual drills at Wednesday's practice just like he did last week.

But unlike last week, he did more throwing on the run.

At one point, Rodgers scrambled to his left and threw a sharp pass to Jordy Nelson along the sideline. Rodgers said he experienced pain his collarbone after last Wednesday's workout, so how he feels after this latest session will help determine when he can return from his Nov.

I'm not worried about pain at this point. At this point the bone is healed enough that movement and throwing isn't going to do any damage to the injury. Pain is going to come from moving muscles and stretching ligaments and tendons that have had their movement limited for a few weeks.

The only risk now would be from falling or hitting it in a way that would rebreak it because the bone isn't completely healed. Once that bone is 100% healed, pain can be masked. As long as his strength is back, there should be no greater risk of re-injury. Just don't want him coming back, worrying and end up hurting his throwing arm or shoulder because he is trying to protect his non-throwing side.

It will be a pretty difficult decision for coach to make if he does not get medical clearance by Friday's practice. Whoever takes starter reps on Friday I would predict would start the game.

I'd say let Rodgers play. Make a game plan with a lot of runs and only very quick passes. It may not be as effective as something you would usually do with Rodgers but it would be better than anything you could come up with for Flynn and the defenses we are going against in the next 3 games aren't very good. Just make it the priority to keep Rodgers jersey clean.

I think they'd have been doing that all year if they could. With our banged-up line, I honestly couldn't blame Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy for shutting Aaron down for the year and spending the next three games deciding if we've got a viable backup on the roster or if we need to draft one. Even with Rodgers, I don't think we're good enough to make much of a splash in the playoffs. I'd hate to see him re-injured just so we can be one and done in the postseason.

Sounds great, but would you trust this line to keep him untouched?

The interior guys yes. That's why I'm saying don't try anything fancy, just get the ball out before anyone has a chance to get to him on the edges. No running around trying to make a play, no deep drops, no 4 WR progressions and a lot of runs. It won't work as well as an Aaron Rodgers offense usually works but it's probably better than anything that can be done with Flynn.

I was thinking along the same lines after watching Peyton Manning play, he just doesn't give the defense time to get to him.

I'm not sure if Aaron could become "that guy".

Aaron gets into the game and his competive juices get flowing, he just might forget he needs to just throw the ball away and move on.

I noticed Flynn rolling out more last game, working with a moving pocket, that seemed to give him a little more time and he hit a few passes.

I really think this is going to turn into a shoot-out, Cowboys have some weapons on offense, but their defense has proven they cannot stop anybody if they get spread out.

Would rather have Rodgers as QB if the game did turn into a shootout, but if Flynn starts hopefully Lacy and Starks can grind out the tough yards, keeping the ball away from The Cowboy offense.

Really wish The Lions were playing early on Sunday, that way The Packers would know where they stand at kickoff.


On the other hand, Packers beat The 'Boys Sunday and that will add just that much more pressure to The Lions on Monday night.

ToP could be huge.

Hope Flynn brings it in a hostile environment. Hope Lacey is up to the task as well.

Yes, in this case T.O.P. would be important, if Flynn is QB, winning the turnover battle, and controlling the lines of scrimmage also just as important.

Thos 3 things usually add up to a Packer win.

There is a theory that the reason the Packers got their asses kicked in Detoilet, was because it was on turf, and the reason we won (and tied) at Lambeau is that it was muddy and helped slow down the offense.

If that is the case, Dallas will have an advantage.

There is also the theory that crowd noise inhibited the hurry up offense, which is what Flynn is good at. That will also give Dallas an edge this week.
