Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was not at practice, so it isn't immediately apparent whether he was cleared from his concussion to do a cardiovascular workout today. That's the first step in returning from a concussion -- when he had one earlier in the season against Washington, he was cleared for a cardio workout Wednesday, then cleared for practice Thursday. Coach Mike McCarthy has his usual Wednesday press conference at about 1 p.m., so he'll presumably have an update on Rodgers then. Three other players didn't practice at all: cornerback Pat Lee (ankle), who was doing sprint work on the side; guard Daryn Colledge (knee); and defensive end Cullen Jenkins (calf). If Colledge doesn't play, it appears T.J. Lang would start in his place, because the Packers' official depth chart lists him as the backup, and Jason Spitz, who had been the backup at left guard, is listed strictly as a backup center this week. Outside linebacker Clay Matthews (shin) and left tackle Chad Clifton (knees) took part in jog-through but didn't practice, per their usual Wednesday schedule. Cornerback Charles Woodson (ankle, toe) practiced, which is unusual, because on Wednesdays he often does only the jog-through. Backup safety Anthony Smith (ankle) also practiced -- he's missed the last two games because of his injury.
