Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers put the pads on for practice on Thursday.

However, according to local Green Bay reporters, it was Matt Flynn that took all the first-team reps with the team. Rodgers, who is recovering from a broken collarbone, is hoping to play this Sunday against the Falcons.

With the NFC North still up for grabs with Detroit and Chicago not doing enough to separate themselves, the Packers could conceivably make a run at hte division title if Rodgers can come back.

Then again, the Packers are playing the Falcons this week. Even though Green Bay has gone without a win since Rodgers was hurt, the Packers could very well get by Atlanta this week and bring back Rodgers next Sunday.
