McCarthy post-practice press conference

Oct. 18, 2012
 

Here are the highlights from coach Mike McCarthy's press confernece after pracice Thursday:

**Quarterback Aaron Rodgers took all the snaps he normally would in practice today after sitting out Wednesday because of a sore calf.

"Talked to Aaron this morning, heís been getting a lot of treatment.," McCarthy said. "Just talking to him this morning, he wanted to go today, felt it was important to get on it and see where he was. Once we started practicing he said he felt like he needed to take all the reps, and he did."

**Defensive lineman B.J. Raji (ankle) returned to practiced as a limited participant but appears to have a decent shot at playing this week at St. Louis. Raji didn't play last week and sat out practice Wednesday.

"B.J. definitely took a step today, B.J. Rraji, as far as going through the rehab and practicing today," McCarthy said. "As always when the player does come back for the first day, the examination tomorrow obviously will be very important."

**McCarthy said tight end Jermichael Finley returned more quickly from his shoulder injury that his early diagnosis suggested. Finley injured his shoulder two weeks ago at Indianapolis and still played last week at Houston.

"For Jermichael even to play in the game I think says a lot about him," McCarthy said. "I know the training staff didnít think he was going to be able to play after his exam Sunday and even Monday morning. For what he did between Monday and Friday to get on the field and show he could do it is a huge credit to Jermichael. We put him on a rep count in the game, actually he hit it, I think it was about 20, 25 plays."
