Following are the highlights from coach Mike McCarthy’s press conference after practice today:

(Jolly injury season ending?) He suffered significant injury, got report last night, that’s why he’s declared up.

(Rodgers update) Practiced well today. Medical meeting tomorrow. Still not cleared. Looked very good at practice, but Matt took majority of reps. I’ll have an announcement for tomorrow on who’s starter. Aaron was a participant today and I thought he looked very good.

(Lacy update) Same plan as last week, will update tomorrow and see if he can practice.

(Respect for Dick LeBeau) His defenses are physical, tackle well, schematically they challenge you. What an incredible coach.

(Why team resilient this year?) Definitely team that believes. They don’t blink, they like each other, ton of enthusiasm today in practice.

(Weather could be bad) We’ll watch it, ready to play in snow. Nothing will surprise us.
I’ll be more interested in weather two hours before the game.

(Progress for Rodgers) He looks sharp, looks better this week, looks like he’s ready to play.

(Rodgers looks ready to play, think he should be?) Just giving an update. He looks good. He hasn’t been medically cleared.
