The good news at Green Bay Packers practice inside the Don Hutson Center on Wednesday was that Aaron Rodgers was showing excellent velocity and mobility during the individual portion of the workout open to reporters.

The bad news was that Rodgers again was taking snaps from backup center JC Tretter, as he did last week, while Matt Flynn was taking snaps from starting center Evan Dietrich-Smith during individual drills.

There's no telling whether Rodgers took snaps with the No. 1 offense during team drills because reporters were ushered out of practice after the first 30 minutes.

During one drill, Rodgers rolled right, cut back left and rifled a pass on the run. He was firing missiles during the workout, an indication that he is champing at the bit to return to the lineup.

Wide receiver Randall Cobb returned to practice for the first time since breaking a tibia on Oct. 13 and showed good agility. At one point, he was leaping high into the air, no worse for the wear from his injury. He was limited during individual drills but was catching passes and running routes.

Not practicing for the Packers on Wednesday: running back Eddie Lacy, linebackers Brad Jones, Nick Perry and Mike Neal, tight end Brandon Bostick and defenstive lineman Johnny Jolly.

Bostick was wearing a boot on his ankle and sitting on the sidelines during practice.

Defensive lineman C.J. Wilson (ankle) returned to practice.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy was scheduled to address the media after practice.
