Packers Calendar: Seeing How Aaron Rodgers Responds to Increased Workload

The scrutiny on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won't end until he either plays or is, gasp, shut down for the season.

With the Packers' playoff hopes hanging in the balance, they could certainly use Rodgers to suit up for Sunday's showdown with the Cowboys in Dallas.

One day after it was reported he took repetitions in practice with first-team offense despite not being medically cleared, it's time to see how his body responds to the increased workload.

"My interest is to see how he feels tomorrow after the work that was done today," said Packers head coach Mike McCarthy on Wednesday.

Before the Packers hit the practice field on Thursday, head coach Mike McCarthy will make his weekly appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio (satellite radio) on at 10:15 a.m. CT.

He'll be talking to one of his former players and Packers preseason announcer Rich Gannon along with Bruce Murray on the SiriusXM Blitz, and it's a good bet he'll once again be asked about Rodgers.

In the evening hours, Packers wide receiver James Jones will make his weekly appearance on 101.1 FM WIXX in Green Bay for 1 on 1 with the Boys from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. CT.

The show can be streamed live online at and through the station's USTREAM video player.

My dream is for Rodgers to come back and play. The whole team is inspired and puts up 50+ points, and shuts out the Cowboys. 52-0 sounds good...

Of course that is a dream. But it would be great.

In reality, I don't see Rodgers playing this week. I think Flynn will have another decent game. I'm thinking it will probably be a TD game again.

Wasn't Rodgers supposed to get re-examined/scanned yesterday?

Did that "increased workload" include taking a direct hit to his left collarbone?
