Oct 28, 2018; Los Angeles, CA, USA; Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy (right) talks to quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12) during the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Rams at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

GREEN BAY -- Though Aaron Rodgers did not appear on the Clarke Hinkle practice field during the portion of practice open to the media Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers' quarterback did participate on a limited basis. 

It was the first time Rodgers has participated on a Wednesday since injuring his knee against Chicago in Week 1.

"It's definitely a step ahead of where he was last week," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "He did the unit drill and the pre-practice stuff. Hopefully he'll be able to go full today."

Rodgers has been using Wednesday as a rehabilitation day for the majority of the season.

In a 16-minute news conference later Wednesday, Rodgers was not even asked about his knee as he continues to manage the injury sustained against the Bears. A week ago he had hoped to be able to shed a protective brace, but he did play with one against the Los Angeles Rams.
