The Green Bay Packers added three players to their did-not-practice list on Thursday: center Evan Dietrich-Smith and defensive lineman Ryan Pickett and left tackle David Bakhtiari.

Also, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was in pads for the first time since breaking his collarbone a month ago. But during the portion of practice open to reporters, backup Matt Flynn again appeared to be working as the starter.

Dietrich-Smith injured an ankle in practice on Wednesday.

Bakhtiari went home because of an illness.

Pickett has been in and out of practice for the last several weeks because of a knee injury.

Two other players didnít practice for the second day in a row: outside linebacker Mike Neal (abdomen) and defensive lineman C.J. Wilson (ankle).
