Packers to rest QB Rodgers until Thursday

GREEN BAY, Wis., Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Green Bay Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers will not participate in practice until Thursday at the earliest.

"I'm not going to practice him Wednesday, and we're going to stay in the rehab," McCarthy said. "Then we're looking at potentially limited Thursday was the conversation we had with the doctors, and we'll take it from there."

Rodgers, who has a sprained right shoulder, was a game-time decision in Sunday's contest against the Atlanta Falcons, but he went the route while completing 25-of-37 passes for 313 yards and three touchdowns in a 27-24 defeat.

"I thought he had an excellent performance with everything he was dealing with," McCarthy said of Rodgers, who hurt the shoulder in a 30-21 loss to Tampa Bay Sept. 28.

Rodgers has passed for 1,274 yards with nine touchdowns and four interceptions in five games this season, his first as a starter since replacing Brett Favre.
