STATE FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: Rodgers admits he wasn't even close to returning last week
Aaron Rodgers now admits that he was not even close to returning last week, after he experienced pain near his broken left collarbone after only a modest workout. On his weekly E-S-P-N-Milwaukee radio show yesterday, the Packers' quarterback said he shouldn't be having pain taking a simple snap or handing off -- and he did. Coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday that Rodgers would work out yesterday. He said he lifted weights for the strength-and-conditioning staff, but that was about it.
